We are one of the UK’s top personal injury firms, helping with the awarding of over £30 million a year in damages to people that have been hurt through no fault of their own. A concussion is a serious injury that can leave you suffering for months, and if an employer’s negligence has lead to you to suffer a concussion, you deserve to be compensated.
What is a concussion?
A concussion occurs after a blow to the head, and the brain comes into contact with the skull.
This in turn leads to swelling of the brain, which can be mild or serious in extent depending on the accident itself. You can suffer a concussion during a slip or fall at work, or if something falls on your head. Symptoms of a concussion include memory loss, confusion, sensitivity to light/impaired vision, headaches, nausea and more.
If you have suffered a concussion, you should receive prompt medical attention and a formal diagnosis from a doctor. Then, make sure you contact Accident Advice Helpline to get a claim underway.
How much could you claim after an accident at work in Weymouth and Portland?
Every concussion injury is highly individual, but beyond just the injury itself, you could make a claim for all the repercussions it has lead to.
For example, if you have suffered a serious concussion, you may be unable to return to work, which can lead to a loss of earnings. You may also have to pay for medicines to help with your recovery, and travel to and from hospital appointments to manage your progress. You could even develop post-concussion depression, and find yourself having to take an extended leave of absence from work to deal with this unpleasant side effect.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll fight hard to ensure you are compensated not just the injury itself, but also these and other ramifications so that you’re not left out of pocket.
To find out how much you could receive, fill in our thirty-second claims calculator. Simple and fast to use, this tool will provide you a rough estimate of expected damages based on the details surrounding your accident. You can also call our helpline, and have your case assessed by an experienced claims adviser.
