If you, or someone close to you, has suffered a severe head injury as a result of an accident or incident that wasn’t their fault, within the last 3 years, then you may be eligible to make a legal claim for compensation for personal injury with accident claims experts in Methil.
It is important to note that if you have a head injury, it may affect your ability to drive and it is your legal obligation to inform the DVLA about any medical condition which could have an impact on your driving ability. It may also affect your ability to deal with your claim, but why should you lose out because of your injury, a family member should deal with the claim for you.
A head injury can cause a range of symptoms depending on the severity of the injury:
- Concussion or loss of mental function can be caused which may be short lived
- Fits or seizures may occur when the body shakes uncontrollably
- Problems with staying awake and speech
- Sensory problems such as loss of hearing and double vision
Diagnosing a head injury
Head injuries should always be investigated by a medical practitioner who may refer you for x rays, CT scans and MRI scanning to ascertain the extent and severity of a head injury. The Glasgow Coma Scale is the recognised diagnostic tool for identifying how serious a head injury may be. This scale spans from 3 to 15 with a scale of 3 being the most severe and 15 the least. A head injury may be said to be severe if a scale of 8 or below is scored.
Treating a severe head injury
The aims of treatment for severe head injury include:
- Observation to ascertain if there are any changes to the casualty’s condition
- Carrying out tests to check for further damage
- Treating additional injuries if they become apparent
