Compensation for shock
In the event of an accident, you may be aware that you have the legal right to claim accident and injury compensation in Eastleigh. This claim could not only provide you with a formal apology for your injuries and the accident which caused them but could also ensure that you’re compensated for any financial losses you suffer as the result of someone else’s actions.
In addition to making your claim for your physical injuries such as broken bones, lacerations or loss of movement, you’re also able to claim for the direct consequences of an accident, such as shock. There are a number of different types of shock and if you were to develop one of these as the result of someone else’s actions or negligence, you would have the right to claim accident and injury compensation in Eastleigh.
- Septic Shock – This is the result of bacteria forming and multiplying in the blood. Rare in the aftermath of an accident, this is more likely to develop as the result of an infection.
- Anaphylactic Shock – A serious allergic reaction to foods, insect stings or medication.
- Cardiogenic Shock – This occurs when the heart becomes damaged and is unable to sufficiently pump blood around the body. It normally occurs as the result of a heart attack or congestive heart failure.
- Hypovolemic Shock – This is caused by blood or fluid loss in the aftermath of a traumatic accident or injury. It means that the heart hasn’t enough blood to carry to the organs and as a result, these go into failure. It can also present in the case of severe anaemia.
- Neurogenic Shock – This occurs when the spinal cord is seriously injured.
