Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we usually deal directly with the victims of accidents, but are also happy to give head trauma accident advice to people who care for them. We know that the effects of head trauma can be devastating, so even when the injury seems minor we strongly advise that you see if you can claim, as this could mean you are in a stronger position if worse problems develop in the future. If you want to make your own claim but find it difficult due to your injury, don’t worry — we can take as long as you need.
Sympathy and support
Our experienced telephone advisors are used to helping people who find the claims process difficult, and will always do their best to support you. We know how shaken you can feel after an accident, even if your physical injuries are minor. We know what a challenge it can be to get back on your feet, and we aim to make the claims process as simple as possible so that it doesn’t add to your problems.
With a head injury, the sooner you can claim, the better, but you can make a claim at any time within the three years after your accident. You will need to have seen a doctor about your injuries and it will help if you tell us about any scans you have had, as we may be able to get copies of the results (we’ll need your permission to do this). We will usually be able to tell you immediately if your case is legitimate.
Grounds for claiming
You don’t need to be a victim of violence in order to claim compensation. If you tripped on uneven paving, you may be able to claim against the council responsible for maintaining it. If you slipped on a wet shop floor where there were no warning signs, you may be able to claim against the owner. If you were hit on the head during a formal sporting event and weren’t wearing standard protective equipment, you may be able to claim against the organisers. We can provide head trauma accident advice in all these situations and more.
Getting a solicitor
No matter how your injury happened, here at Accident Advice Helpline we will be able to match you up with a suitably qualified solicitor who has experience relevant to your case. This will increase your chances of claiming successfully and of getting the best possible compensation settlement for your individual circumstances. Your solicitor will handle the legal issues and will contact you when there are important decisions to be made.
What a successful claim means
A successful head trauma claim means that you will be compensated for your suffering and for money that you’ve been forced to spend, or for any lost earnings, as a result of your accident. It also means that you’ll receive money to help you to cope with any lasting problems, covering the cost of things such as personal care. It can’t always fix everything, but it can give you a better quality of life.
