Are you suffering from a brain injury because you have had an accident at work in South Kesteven? Was the accident the fault of your employer through negligence, and did it happen no more that three years ago?
Injuries like this can be devastating and upsetting for you and your loved ones, so if you have suffered a brain injury because of an accident at work in South Kesteven then you may want to make an injury claim against your boss using solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to help you. If you have been affected so badly by the injury that you cannot make a claim yourself, then a family member is allowed to make to claim on your behalf, so that you do not lose out on the compensation to which you are entitled.
Our brain is one of the most delicate organs in our body, but it is also the organ that controls everything we do; not just actions like working, reading or some other activity — without it we would not breath, our limbs would not work, and our heart wouldn’t know that it needs to beat.
This is why it is so essential, and can have serious consequences for the victim if it becomes injured in any way, including in an accident at work in Kesteven.
The brain injuries you could sustain in an accident at work in South Kesteven
There are numerous ways in which your brain could be injured, and some injuries could be much more serious than others. Some of the more common ones are:
- Penetrating brain injury, where an object fractures the skull and enters the brain tissue;
- Diffuse brain injury, when severe shaking of the head causes the brain to knock against the skull;
- Brain confusion, when the brain becomes swollen because of pressure caused by a break or crack in the skull;
- Concussion, the most common and mildest form of brain injury, which usually happens with a low impact knock to the head; and
- Closed head injury, caused by a forceful impact that does not break the skull.
Any one of these brain injuries could have a life-changing effect on not only you, but also your loved ones. For them it could be like living with a different person, if you are well enough to stay at home. Many brain injury suffers need 24-hour care and spend the rest of their life in a care home.
As every victim is unique, it can never be totally predicted how they will cope with the injury or how it will affect them. The family just has to be guided by the medical professionals and take heed of any advice they are given.
