Sustaining a head injury can be very serious and it’s important that you seek urgent medical help following this type of incident. In some instances, the severity of the injury may not become apparent straight away so seeking medical treatment quickly could avoid any complications that could arise.
If you’ve suffered a head injury, there may be external signs, such as bleeding or bruising but you might not be able to see any damage at all. However, this doesn’t mean that you haven’t been hurt.
Often, when people hit their heads, they suffer internal damage, such as a brain injury. As this can be difficult to diagnose, doctors may need to perform a range of tests and scans to determine how serious your injury is.
Of course, after sustaining this type of injury, your top priority will be to seek medical assistance but there are other considerations as well. For example, you may want to think about making a claim for injury compensation and claiming for a brain injury could certainly result in a significant pay-out.
How much compensation could you obtain?
As with any type of injury, when you’re claiming for a brain injury the amount of compensation you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries. If your injury is likely to have life-long effects, for example, you may receive a larger amount of compensation than if your injury is likely to be temporary.
