How much can I claim for a head or brain injury?

It goes without saying that every head or brain injury is different, and the amount of compensation that may ultimately be paid depends on a variety of factors: from long-term prognosis to the cost of any care required. However, where head or brain injuries leave the sufferer with impaired mental capacity, or requiring a high level of care, compensation payments in the millions of pounds are not unheard of where someone else's negligence is to blame.
