If you have suffered a serious head injury it can have a big impact on your life and change things forever. You and your family will likely need ongoing support and care, which can be costly.

If you’ve suffered a head injury, brain injury, neck injury, back injury, or any other type of serious injury as a result of someone else or the negligence of another party, it’s possible you may have a claim for compensation. Shine lawyers are head injury compensation claim experts who can advise you of your rights and bring forward a claim on your behalf.

Head injury compensation - how it gets calculated
Head injury compensation is calculated differently depending on your individual circumstances. In most cases, a monetary value is placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury that resulted from the incident, and your actual life path since. Shine Lawyers can help you every step of the way and get you the compensation you need following your head injury.
