The first thing you should do if you have suffered a head injury is seek medical attention, as even seemingly innocuous bumps on the head can lead to serious consequences further down the line. Head injuries can be catastrophic or even life-changing in both the short and long term, so it’s important to get medical attention as soon as possible. This will also help you when you come to claiming for accident expenses in Malvern Hills as evidence of treatment will help you prove your injury.
In order to be eligible your accident must have taken place in the last three years and must have been someone else’s fault, i.e. a third party must have been responsible for what happened. If you do not fulfil these criteria you will not be able to make a claim.

Claiming compensation for head injuries
In order to start a claim for compensation, you must have been over 18 at the time the accident occurred. Don’t worry if you were younger as it doesn’t exclude you from the process – you simply have to wait until you turn 18 to start a claim. If this is more than three years after your accident, again you have no reason to worry as the three years will start from the date you turn 18.
All of Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyers handle cases with the utmost of sensitivity and professionalism and we’re committed to making the process as easy as possible for everyone we work with. In most cases your claim can be handled over the phone and it’s highly unlikely you’ll need to attend court.
