Every year, about 125,000 people are unfortunate enough to experience an injury that affects their brain in some manner or form.
Any type of brain injury needs to be treated with the utmost care and any delay in treatment can lead to the possibility of permanent damage.
What are brain injuries and how are they caused?
Although it can be hard to identify the original cause of a brain injury, the symptoms are usually the same. People will experience a loss of memory, tiredness and have difficulty in concentrating. The causes of these injuries may be as a result of a knock to the head in a car accident or perhaps a fall in the workplace.
If you work in a factory or on a construction site, it is imperative that you wear the correct headgear. The risk of injury from falling objects is apparent and a brain injury can often result. Your employer has a duty of care to follow and if they fail to offer this legal requirement, they may be liable for claims for injury-related financial compensation.
What to do if you suspect you have had a brain injury
If you have experienced an injury that was not your fault and you believe you may have suffered a brain injury as a result, please visit your doctor or hospital immediately. You will need to be examined and if you are suffering from this type of injury, you need to receive the appropriate type of care as soon as possible. Even if you feel that everything is okay, as soon as possible after the accident, please seek out medical help.
How to claim
If you have been diagnosed as suffering from a type of brain injury that was not your fault, you should make a claim for financial compensation.
You will need to take a considerable amount of time off work and may be looking at serious financial losses. The long-term effects may stop you from ever returning to work.
