A head injury is one of the most serious types of injury that you can sustain in any accident. One of the most dangerous things about a head injury is that it may at first not seem to be particularly serious, and may leave you feel disorientated or with a bit of a headache, but nothing that causes you concern. If this is the case then it is normal for you to decide to not bother seeing a doctor and to go home and sleep it off.
Unfortunately, this is one of the reasons that a head injury can be so serious, as more critical symptoms might not show up until later, by which point the injury could already be fatal. Here are some of the things you should do if you think that you have sustained a head injury, and how you can claim compensation for head injuries in Pontypridd.
See a doctor
A doctor is much better able to assess whether or not you have a head injury, how serious your head injury is, and what is most likely to have caused this injury.
All of these things will not only help you to decide whether or not you have a case for compensation but, more importantly, ensure that your injury does not develop into a more serious problem which could lead to permanent damage or even death.
Write down what happened
If you are thinking about claiming compensation, you should be aware that the compensation process can often take a little while to be completed.
In order that you are able to make a successful claim, you should write down everything that happened as you remember it, so that this can be used as evidence.
