The idea behind compensation is to return you, as far as possible, to your pre-accident situation. The unfortunate truth is that no amount of money will undo the accident.
With serious brain injuries, recovering to a normal way of life is not always possible. Where compensation can assist is in helping to cope with the long-term effects – removing financial worry when you have a new way of life to adjust to.
But claiming compensation isn’t just about countering the negative effects of your accident. It is about making a stand for what’s right, claiming what you are entitled to, and trying to prevent similar negligence affecting someone else in the future. Your claim could drive these changes – perhaps forcing new safety practices to be adopted, for example.
