    Compensation for memory loss injuries


    The idea of losing your memory can be very scary and if it does happen to you it can be very traumatic. Memory loss injuries are most often caused by head injuries after an accident and can occur even from small or minor head injuries.

    At Accident Advice Helpline we want to help if you have sustained such an injury. We have dealt with many cases of head injuries where memory loss may occur and can give you free, no-obligation advice on our phone line.

    Types of memory loss

    Post-traumatic amnesia is the loss of memory after a traumatic brain injury. It may cause a sense of confusion and disorientation and the person may be unable to remember how they were injured or what happened after the injury. In some cases they may forget things such as their name or where they are.

    Memories lost can be short-term memories from immediately before and after the accident or longer-term memories or there may be problems in forming new memories when damage in the brain occurs.

    Causes of memory loss injuries

    Any injury that affects the head has a possibility of causing memory loss. Usually a significant injury may be required such as from a hard blow to the head. This can happen in a car accident, from a fall, from a violence related injury, or even at work.

    Most often the workplaces where head injuries are more likely are places such as builders yards, factories or anywhere that has heavy machinery or people carrying out heavy manual work. Whatever caused the accident, if it was not your fault you may be entitled to receive compensation.

    Employers’ responsibilities

    If you are injured whilst at work and suffer memory loss injuries you could be entitled to compensation. At Accident Advice helpline we believe that employers have a responsibility to ensure that their staff can work and carry out their duties in a safe environment.

    This means that employers should follow health and safety regulations and make sure that their staff are trained in how to do their job properly and safety.

    Corners should not be cut when it comes to safety and employees may need to wear protective gear in their job to protect from the possibility of injury.

    If you have suffered memory loss injuries that were the result of someone else’s negligence then give us a call on: 0800 689 0500 to discuss how we can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
