    Car Accident Claims in Thanet

    Put your claim forward and give yourself a head start with expert help!

    Head injuries remain some of the most dangerous and unpredictable injuries that can happen in a road traffic accident.  Whilst any injury can cause serious trauma, a head injury can leave the casualty with severe life limiting consequences that may change their lives forever.

    If you, or some one close to you, have been the victim of a serious head injury that was caused through no fault of your own in a road traffic accident within the last 3 years’, then you may be unaware that you are legally entitled to claim compensation in the form of your car accident claims in Thanet.

    Why are head injuries so unpredictable?

    Head injuries can cause serious consequences which may lead to car accident claims in Thanet because:

    • Unless the casualty is admitted to hospital and assessed within an hour of the injury occurring, then their condition may deteriorate rapidly and the outcome may be more dangerous
    • Any bleeding between the skull and brain tissue can lead to swelling. This in turn leads to excessive pressure building up which can cause brain damage to result, if it continues unchecked.
    • Any damage to the head can cause loss of consciousness and concussion which need to addressed and monitored closely
    • The spinal cord and spinal column may be compromised in a head injury causing neural damage which can be life limiting
    • The airways may become blocked through swelling and bleeding which can compromise a patient’s respiratory functioning
