Brain injury is an often misunderstood affliction that can affect sufferers in different ways. According to the Brain Injury Resource Foundation, around 125,000 people are admitted to hospital in the United Kingdom each year to be treated for an injury affecting the brain in some way.

They can range from very minor injuries to more serious ones and may well affect other parts of the body, sometimes resulting in physical disability. Symptoms can also affect the behaviour of those who have been injured. People often experience memory loss, personality change, tiredness, and an inability to concentrate. In very serious cases, this damage – both physical and mental – can be permanent.
A brain injury can have a serious effect on personal wellbeing. If you or a relative has suffered such an injury in an accident that was not your fault, then you may wish to avail of the services of a brain injury expert lawyer.
Brain injury claim
The brain injury often occurs in car accidents, although a common outcome of motorcycle accidents is brain damage. Brain injury patients can take months to recover and many never return to how they were before their accident. Claiming for compensation with the services of a brain injury expert lawyer may help to recover funds lost through the victim’s inability to work and may also help pay for specialist medical equipment or treatment.
A bump on the head should always be treated with caution – at the first sign of any nausea or dizziness you should seek medical attention immediately.
The most important outcome of the months after the accident should be recovery. But if you do decide to contact a brain injury expert lawyer then you must do so within three years of the accident occurring.
