What can a victim of Traumatic Brain Injury recover compensation for?

Compensation for Brain Injury is made up of two Parts:

Part 1: General Damages for pain and suffering

How do we value pain and suffering?

The Courts have a Guide called the Judicial College Guidelines and these are broken down into:

  1. a) Very Severe Brain Damage  (£227,975 to £326,700)
  2. b) Moderately Severe Brain Damage (£177,100 to £227,975)
  3. c) Moderate Brain Damage  (£34,815 to £177,100)
  4. d) Less Severe Brain Damage (£12,375 to £34,760)
  5. e) Minor Brain or Head Injury (£1,788 to £10,340)
