    Head injury accident claim


    Head injury accident claim

    What is described as a head injury can vary greatly. It can be anything from bruising or cuts, to a fractured skull and/or injury to the brain. If you have had the misfortune to suffer these types of injuries through no fault of your own, then you may be able to make a head injury accident claim.

    Injuries to the head can be caused by many things. A head injury can occur after a trip or fall, be suffered in a road traffic accident or injury at work, or by something striking or falling onto the skull. Whatever the reason, so long as you did not contribute to your own misfortune, you may well be able to make a claim and secure compensation.

    That compensation could be crucial to your future lifestyle. It could help you recoup income lost through having to take time off work recovering, as well as any additional costs, such as prescription charges. In serious cases where you have been left disabled, the award could provide for such things as the cost of care and necessary alterations to the home.

    As a successful head injury accident claim is so important following an injury to the head, it is vital you seek expert legal advice as soon as possible. At Accident Advice Helpline, we are a law firm that has a legal team very experienced in advising and representing people who have suffered head injuries. That expertise could make all the difference between the claim being won or lost.

    We will deal with you both sympathetically and professionally. We will have to discover what actually happened when you suffered the injury to your head. From the information, we will be able to determine whether you actually do have grounds for a head injury accident claim and who the claim should be made against.

    Information about what happened can be gathered from your own recollections and those who witnessed the accident. If there is any CCTV footage available of the incident, then that also could prove invaluable. If the police became involved, we would also seek the report from the officer who led the investigation.

    The medical report of your head injury will be of crucial importance. It will help to determine the extent of your injury and whether there is likely to be any long-term effect. The doctor’s report could also determine the amount of compensation awarded.

    The party found to be liable may decide to accept your claim. This will mean the claim not having to go before the courts, which saves time. We will consult with you to determine whether the amount of compensation offered is acceptable. If it is not, or liability is denied, then the case will go before the civil courts.

    We will ensure you are represented in court and endeavour to gain the greatest amount of compensation possible. As you will be represented in what is known as “no win, no fee*”, you will not have to pay our fees if your bid for compensation is unsuccessful.
