Can I make a brain injury claim in Ross on Wye if I have had a brain injury?

What injuries can cause a brain injury claim in Ross on Wye? The most common brain injuries are:

  • Brain confusion – where the brain swells, usually after a crack or break in the skull;
  • Bleeding inside the skull around the brain;
  • Bleeding between the skull and the brain;
  • Concussion – this is the mildest and most common of all brain injuries;
  • Closed head injury – this is an impact to the head where no cracks or breaks appear in the skull;
  • Penetrating head injury – something breaks the skull and penetrates the brain; and
  • Diffuse brain injury – if the head is heavily shaken about, the brain gets knocked against the skull. This injury can harm the brain in several areas.

If the brain is injured then the effects can be life changing, not just for the injured party but also for those close to them. Damaging one of the most fragile parts of your body in an accident that was not your fault makes a brain injury claim in Ross on Wye applicable.

If you sustain any type of brain injury in an accident that was not your fault, then you or someone else on your behalf should make a brain injury claim in Ross on Wye.

How does the brain injury affect the victim?

  • Anxiety;
  • Depression;
  • Difficulty with understanding or comprehending;
  • Changes to the senses of smell, taste and touch;
  • A loss of, or altered, speech;
  • Loss of memory;

  • Finding concentrating difficult;
  • Speed of thought;

This situation really does mean that someone needs to make a brain injury claim in Ross on Wye.
