Let’s take a hypothetical scenario and quite a common one. Perhaps a driver is travelling too fast through the sleepy villages of Somerset, and startles a horse and rider. The rider is thrown and suffers concussion and perhaps other injuries and is unable to compete in the local gymkhana, for which she has been practising for many months and also invested money in training. There might be a case for a compensation claim.

First aid for head injuries
A blow to the head can be a serious matter; effects can be delayed and the injured person should be handled with care and caution. For everyday knocks and bumps, for example, if your child falls off the slide in the playground or bangs his head on the runaway swing, you can practice first aid. Put the patient in a quiet room or on the sofa. Apply an ice pack wrapped in a towel to the bump, to help reduce the swelling. A pack of frozen veg will do instead, (don’t open the pack, obviously). Keep the child quiet and watch out for other symptoms. If the patient vomits or blacks out, these could be symptoms of damage to the brain, and you should seek professional medical attention without delay.
