Vertigo and dizziness isn’t a symptom you might expect to experience if you have suffered a minor head injury such as concussion, but it’s more common than you might think. Has a head injury left you with vertigo? Then you might be unable to go to work, look after your family or take part in your usual activities.
There is some good news though – you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation and the amount of compensation you’ll receive will take into account how your injuries have affected your life. This means if you have lost earnings from taking time off work, you could be compensated, easing your financial worries whilst you recover from your head injury.
Have you found a head injury left you with vertigo?
If this has happened to you then you may feel dizzy, unsteady on your feet and suffer vision problems, even headaches. It’s important that you seek medical attention if you experience any of these symptoms after suffering a minor head injury. You may already have attended hospital for an examination after your accident, but you need to go back if you’re suffering from symptoms days or weeks after your accident as these could be a sign of something more serious.
If a head injury left you with vertigo, this can take weeks or even months to subside and in some cases you may need medical treatment. Taking time off work can put financial strain on you and your family, which is why making a personal injury claim is such a good idea. There’s a three-year time limit in place to make a claim though, so it’s important you don’t wait around for too long after your accident.
