Brain injury legal case

A brain injury legal case can be one of the most challenging cases that lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline deal with. They are extremely varied and the people that start brain injury lawsuits have been injured in a wide variety of accidents.

Brain injury legal case following road traffic accident

Road traffic accidents are, unfortunately, still a common occurrence in this country. Despite the huge advances in vehicle safety, it is still very easy to damage your head in a road traffic accident and a brain injury can be the result.

When your car hits another object, such as another vehicle coming in the other direction, it loses momentum. The objects inside the car (that includes you) carry on moving in the original direction until they also hit something that stops them. Even with seatbelts and air bags, passengers can hit their heads on:

  • The windscreen
  • The steering wheel
  • The dash board
  • Surfaces outside  the vehicle if they are thrown through the windscreen

The impact can be very great indeed and a serious brain injury can be the result. Brain injury lawsuits are designed to get the injured person some compensation. The compensation is paid by the person that caused the accident and this is often another driver. In practice, the compensation is usually paid out of a motor insurance policy and Accident Advice Helpline will be negotiating with an insurer to get you the best level of pay-out that they can.

Brain injury legal case following accidents at work

Some workplaces are more dangerous, in terms of head injuries, than others. Two of the more dangerous sectors are the construction industry and the agricultural industry. These both involve working at heights, working with heavy objects and working with machinery.

  • Working at heights – falling from a height is a very common cause of brain injuries. The head hits a hard surface as the victim falls or lands and the soft tissues of the brain become damaged. Accident Advice Helpline would help you to claim from the person who caused the accident and this is often the employer because they did not risk assess the task or did not devise a safe system of work.
  • Working with heavy objects – the problem with working with heavy objects is that they can fall on your head and cause a brain injury. Heavy loads should be secured at all times and hard hats should be worn. If this has not been the case then Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you to start a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Machinery – some parts of a machine are very powerful and move very fast. If they come into contact with a human head then it is the human that will come off worst! If your employer is at fault for this accident then you may be able to start a lawsuit against them.
