Practical issues

The effects of a brain injury are broad, and can affect many different aspects of day-to-day life.

This section provides information on some of the more common issues people encounter after brain injury, such as driving, returning to work and welfare benefits.  

Depending on the cause of a brain injury, claiming compensation may be an option and can ensure that the correct care and rehabilitation is put in place in future. Our Legal advice section gives further information on this process, and you can search for a specialist brain injury solicitor in the In your area section. 

Contact the Headway helpline if you have any further questions about these or other practical issues arising from a brain injury.
