If the person or organisation you are claiming against agrees to the assessment of your claim, the Injuries Board will assess the amount of compensation due to you based on the report of your doctor and according to what is called the Book of Quantum.
If you have suffered a head injury - which includes a concussion, a skull fracture, an eye injury, damage to your hearing, and facial and dental injuries - and no other part of the body is affected, the level of compensation you will receive will depend on the severity of the injury.
Severity is divided into the following broad ranges to reflect the degree of disruption to your lifestyle and the pain and permanency of your condition:
• Moderately severe
• Severe and Permanent
