Brain injuries can cause innumerable symptoms that significantly alter your day-to-day life. Minor injuries can cause headaches, loss of concentration or memory impairment, whilst serious consequences can be the loss of senses, mobility or dramatic personality changes.
If you have been the victim of any of these you may wonder if you can claim for a brain injury; Accident Advice Helpline is here to advise you in such cases.
The crucial element of evaluating a brain injury claim is that the injury is acquired. Acquired brain injuries are any sort of injury that is the direct result of an accident, and in most cases can be claimed for.
As long as your injury was inflicted by the accident as opposed to a pre-existing condition, you may be eligible to claim for your brain injury. The friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline will be able to assess your claim with a quick free phone call.
Qualifying brain injuries
The complex and fragile nature of the human brain, coupled with its necessity in all functions of our body, means that brain injuries can have almost infinite side effects. In order to have a valid claim for a brain injury all you require is medical evidence that the injury was sustained as a direct result of an accident.
At the most severe end of the scale, the loss of bodily control, entire senses or the ability to speak can result from brain injury. Such symptoms can permanently alter your day-to-day life and, as such, Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you to claim for your brain injury.
Lesser symptoms of brain injury can be equally devastating to your life. Memory loss, ongoing headaches and limited concentration can be just as life altering as more serious symptoms, affecting your ability to work and perform day-to-day tasks.
For a claim to be valid your brain injury does not have to be a permanent condition. Temporary amnesia or other transient conditions can heal over time as the bruising or swelling reduces; however, these conditions are equally valid for a brain injury claim as long as you have medical evidence confirming the cause of the injury.
