Suffering a head injury can be devastating to your wellbeing and livelihood. Let the expert team at Stacks help you fight for the compensation you deserve and to seek the support and medical treatment you need.
The head and brain is one of the most important and vital parts of the body. A loss of any function of the brain can lead to severe impairment, disability, and a dramatic reduction of your physical and cognitive ability.
Suffering an injury to the brain or head as a result of someone else’s carelessness or mistake is heartbreaking, leading to a loss of your quality of life and even your ability to work and pay your living expenses.
If you have suffered a head or brain injury and wish to seek compensation, Stacks’ expert personal injury lawyers throughout NSW can help.
Types of head and brain injuries
There are two main categories of brain injury and these include:
- Acquired brain injury (ABI) - Refers to any type of damage to the brain that occurs after birth, including from reasons such as a stroke, infection in the brain, by alcohol or other drugs, or diseases of the brain.
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) - A type of acquired brain injury which occurs as a result of direct force applied to the head, such as in an accident, or where someone has been hit in the head by a person or an object.
The amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive will be based on a large number of different individual factors, and claims of this nature are assessed on a claim by claim basis.
