    Have you had to have a head injury examination?


    Suffering a head injury after an accident means you’re likely to need a head injury examination. Head injuries can be sustained in a variety of different types of accidents, but it’s important to have an examination by a medical professional to ensure that your head injury isn’t serious. For minor head injuries such as concussion, you may need to spend some time in hospital to be monitored, whereas for serious head injuries surgery or medical treatment may be needed.

    If somebody else was to blame for your accident you could make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline, provided it hasn’t been more than three years since your accident.

    What does a head injury examination involve?

    If you have suffered a head injury, you may need to go to hospital for a head injury examination. Your doctor or nurse will usually check your head for signs of trauma and injury, as well as checking your vision and hearing. They may refer you for a scan if there are signs of a more serious head injury, and you may need to spend some time in hospital for assessment and treatment. They’ll also ask you about any pain or symptoms you are experiencing, such as dizziness or fatigue, as these can be important in your diagnosis.

    Once you are feeling better, you may want to think about making a claim for personal injury compensation. Or if you have suffered a serious injury such as a brain injury, somebody else could make a claim for compensation on your behalf.
