Head injuries can be among the most serious you can sustain, leaving lasting effects on all victims. Some are fortunate enough to get away with a few bruises after an accident, but others aren’t so lucky and resort to claiming compensation for head injuries in the Malvern Hills because they’ve been so badly affected.
A lot of head injuries, like concussion, fractured skulls and even brain damage, occur in road traffic accidents when the head is thrown around upon impact. While this is bad enough on its own, when you factor in that the accident may not have even been the fault of the victim it becomes a lot more difficult to deal with.
The thing is, unlike many other injuries, a head injury is not the kind of thing you can just brush off, taking a few painkillers here or there and continuing with your day. A head injury might not even present its symptoms initially, for various reasons, and that’s why paramedics are so keen to brace both the head and neck and to ensure that the person gets treated in hospital at the earliest opportunity.
What can I claim for?
If you’ve been in any kind of accident that wasn’t your fault, whether it was in the workplace, out on the road or you’ve slipped, tripped or fallen anywhere; then you may be entitled to claim compensation for head injuries in the Malvern Hills.
Accident Advice Helpline help hundreds of accident victims each year to claim the compensation they deserve, with this figure varying according to the severity of the injury and the circumstances surrounding the accident.
Our team of personal injury lawyers, all of which work on a 100% no-win no-fee* basis, will analyse the details of your claim to build the best possible case for you in order to make sure that you get the best settlement – either inside or outside the courtroom – along with any other money that you’re entitled to.
If the injury is bad enough that your doctor advises you to take time off work, then you may be able to reclaim any earnings that you lost during that period of time to ensure that you’re not hurt financially as well as physically.
In addition to this you might also be able to reclaim any travel or medical expenses as a result of the accident. You might be advised not to drive for a certain period of time, for example, and that could mean that you’re spending money on taxis and buses to get to check-ups. We’ll do our best to help you to get this money back too.
