You can only claim compensation for head injuries in Caerphilly if the accident in which you were hurt was not your own fault. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we are the experts at establishing liability for accidents – this is the process of sorting out exactly who was to blame. It is a crucial part of the personal injury claims process because the person who caused the accident is the person who will be paying your compensation.
Claiming compensation for head injuries in Caerphilly – who was to blame?
Sustaining a head injury in an accident that was not your own fault ca be a life changing experience. Head injuries are the most serious type of injury that a person can suffer in an accident because the head contains the brain. In terms of recovery, the brain is one of the most vulnerable organs of the body. Brain tissue is damaged very easily and it does not always heal.
It is vital that we quickly work out who was to blame for your accident so that we can get you the compensation that you deserve. If you have received your head injury in a road traffic accident, it will probably have been another driver that caused the accident. A driver can cause an accident by:
- Driving too fast for the road and weather conditions at the time
- Driving carelessly or recklessly
- Failing to concentrate on their driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
If a driver did not uphold their duty of care towards you, as a fellow road user, you may be able to start a personal injury claim against them.
