    Did you suffer a head injury and bleeding?


    It’s easier than you think to end up with a head injury and bleeding following an accident. But if you do, would you know whether you could claim for compensation because of those injuries? This is where a lot of people come unstuck and need some advice – and it’s good to know someone is on hand to help in this respect.

    Head injuries can be troublesome and can even be life threatening in some instances, although this is rare. They can happen in all sorts of ways, and sometimes people are injured even when they have done nothing to lead to such injuries happening.

    Examples of head injury and bleeding incidents that may occur

    A head injury is likely to happen in one of two ways. For example, it may occur if you receive a blow to the head. This might happen if something falls on you and you aren’t wearing any protective headgear. You could be walking past a building site and something could fall on you, or perhaps a sign could come loose from a shop and strike you on the head.

    The second way to receive a head injury is if you fall or have an accident that leads you to hit your head on something else. If you slip or trip over, you could strike your head on a wall or another solid object. Here, the question is whether you were made to fall because of an obstacle that should not have been there.

    How do you know if you could claim?

    If you have sustained a head injury and bleeding, your first task will be to determine how bad the injury is. Head injuries can bleed a lot, so you may require stitches. In some cases, people are kept in hospital overnight to ensure concussion does not mask anything more serious.
