What is a Serious Injury Compensation Claim?

Serious or catastrophic injury compensation claims typically involve brain or spinal injuries, amputation, burns or multiple fractures. However the term covers a wide range of injuries, including:

  • Brain injury
  • Serious head injuries
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Amputation or serious orthopaedic injuries equivalent in severity
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Severe burns and scalding
  • Fatality

Serious injuries tend to leave long-lasting effects on the injured person and potentially their families and loved ones. Round the clock care and even adaptations to the home may be needed to make provision for ensuring life after a serious injury is made as comfortable as possible.

Serious injuries tend to be the result of either severe traumatic injury caused through a serious accident or instances involving medical negligence.

A Serious Injury Claim for compensation is multi-faceted, as long term consequences must be factored in to financial compensation settlements to ensure the long term well-being of the injured person and their needs are fully considered.
