Personal injuries can vary greatly in severity – perhaps one of the most concerning and severe of these are brain and head injuries. Such injuries can have very frightening and sometimes life threatening results, altering the life of the injured person considerably as well as affecting their friends and family who may be required to provide care and support.
Brain and head injuries are often caused by a blow to the head, perhaps during a road traffic accident, caused by a slip, trip or fall or during a sporting activity. If someone else was to blame for this injury, then it is important to check your eligibility for compensation.
Why should I make a claim for brain and head injuries?
If you have been involved in an accident that has resulted in brain & head injuries, your daily life will likely be affected. Whether the impact lasts short or long term, the effects should not be underplayed. 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 spacial awareness
- Eyesight problems
Whatever the effects, you should be compensated for injuries that were caused by negligence or the actions of another person. 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 ongoing.
