The brain is the most important, and the most delicate part of our body. Even the smallest injury to it can cause untold damage and pain. That is why here at Accident Advice Helpline we believe that everyone should receive compensation for serious injuries in Maidstone if they were involved in an accident that was not their fault.
Even a minor bump to the head can potentially cause problems with our vision or our balance. They can give us headaches and make us feel sick. Luckily, in most cases these just need someone to keep an eye on them, a little bit of rest and regular pain relief.
Unfortunately, sometimes head injuries can be much more severe. These require immediate medical attention because of the risk of brain damage. Symptoms of a serious head injury include:
- Loss of conciousness
- Fits or seizures
- Slurred speech
- Drowsiness or inability to stay awake
- Loss of memory
- Repeated vomiting
- Blood or fluids coming out of the nose or ears
If you or someone that you know has been injured in an accident and display any of these symptoms, you need to call an ambulance or get to an Accident and Emergency department as soon as possible. This obviously means you get the appropriate treatment and reduce the risk of long term damage, but it also means that it will be noted on your records in case you decide to make a claim for compensation for serious injuries in Maidstone.
Even after a head injury has healed, there can often be lasting effects. It may affect your ability to work, to drive, to do all the things with your family that you are used to doing. Financial compensation will never make that right, but it can help to ease the financial burden.
