Head injuries are amongst the most serious injuries that you can experience in an accident, and if you have suffered a head injury behind the ear then you may experience dizziness, bruising behind the ear or blood/clear fluid coming from the nose or ears. A serious head injury may affect your consciousness, whilst a brain injury can lead to changes in your personality and your mood, which can impact your whole life.
If you’ve suffered a head injury behind the ear then you may need medical treatment in hospital, and some people will never make a full recovery from their injuries. If this has happened to you, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation if somebody else is to blame for your accident.
Who’s to blame for your head injury behind the ear?
If you’ve been injured in an accident at work then your employer could be held liable, as it’s their responsibility to keep you safe at work. Suffering a head injury behind the ear as a result of a road traffic accident could be blamed on the other driver if they have been driving dangerously and have caused your accident. Serious head injuries are going to impact your life both now and in the future, so you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence if somebody else is at fault.
