Accident head injury – the facts
Accident injuries can vary greatly in severity. One of the most concerning and severe of these is brain and head injuries. Brain and head injuries can have very serious and sometimes even life threatening results. This can have a great effect on the individual who has suffered these injuries altering the life of the injured person greatly as well as affecting their friends and family and loved ones who may be needed to provide essential care and support.
An accident head injury can be caused by a blow to the head for example during a road traffic accident or caused by a person banging their head as a result of a slip, trip or fall or even during a sporting or leisure activity. If someone else was to blame for this injury, then it is important to check your eligibility for compensation.
How should I make a claim for brain and head injuries?
If you have been involved in an accident that has resulted in an accident head injury, your daily life can be greatly affected. The impact can be short or long term. Either way the effects should not be ignored, dismissed or underplayed.
Serious side effects can arise as a direct result of a head or brain injury. As a result of brain and head injuries, you may experience:
- Loss of physical sensation
- Poor memory
- Lack of concentration
- Personality or mood changes
- Difficulty with problem solving
- Lack of special awareness
- Eyesight problems
Whatever the effects, no matter how minor, you should be compensated for the injuries that were caused and the side affects you have suffered. Especially if these were caused by negligence or the actions of another person. At Accident Advice Helpline we will work hard to make sure you are compensated. This compensation will take into account your injury type and severity, psychological impact and financial considerations such as medical expenses and any loss of earnings due to an inability to work, whether permanent or temporary.
You may have also incurred care costs, which depending on the severity of your injury could be on going. This is why you should make a claim for your accident head injury.
