Do you know the cost of claiming for concussion injuries?
Can you remember what you were thinking in the moments directly after your accident? We can guarantee you weren’t thinking about making a personal injury claim but now that a period of time has elapsed you may want to rethink that. The cost of claiming for concussion is not just a financial one. There is also the price you are paying as the victim of an accident that left you with concussive injuries to begin with.
Accident Advice Helpline is a team of personal injury compensation specialists who understand just how daunting making a claim for compensation can be. Making a claim for compensation is perhaps up there with making a will or getting life insurance – you know you should think about it but never do it, at least not until you absolutely have to.
How do you know if you are entitled to make a claim?
After your accident your first days and weeks will have been focused on getting better, or at least as well as possible. While we know that some concussion injuries resolve themselves quickly, there are sadly others that don’t and they can linger for weeks, months or even years.
The cost of claiming for concussion injuries might not just be the fact you were injured in an accident you didn’t cause, but more likely because your injuries have not receded. Concussion injuries often include:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Short-term memory problems
- Problems communicating with others
- Loss of self-confidence
These are just a few of the issues that can be endured by the victim of an accident who has suffered concussion. As an outgoing individual prior to the accident you may have found that you have withdrawn into yourself and are unable to converse with friends, family and work colleagues as you did before.
Immediately the cost of claiming for concussion-related injuries has increased because it is not just a financial issue but also one of personal importance. Concussion victims often cite being unable to communicate with loved ones and friends simply because they ‘don’t feel themselves any more’.
Some of those suffering from concussion put it down to being in a position where they are saying and doing certain things but feel as though they are on the outside looking in. For some this can be difficult to contend with, but for others it can be severely debilitating.
