If you get a phone call out of the blue telling you a loved one has been injured in a car accident, the immediate reaction is panic, and the need to see them to see just how bad they are.
For some, this is a journey that finds their loved one with a broken leg perhaps, but for others they find a shell of a person who can’t speak to them or even move. This is what can happen when head injuries in Gloucester are sustained, and some victims will recover some of their functions and others won’t recover at all.
Families making a claim for head injuries in Gloucester
Just because the victim can no longer deal with their own affairs, does not mean they should lose the compensation they are entitled to if the accident they were injured in was caused by someone else.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have dealt with many families over the last 14 years, and have found that often the compensation is needed more than ever in this situation.
Not all brains injuries are this desperate, but there are some victims who will need to be cared for 24 hours a day, and really the best solution for them is to be resident in a care home that caters for brain injuries.
Making car accident claims for concussion
Concussion is the mildest of all brain injuries, and most people know that it can cause severe headaches until it has corrected itself. But in the longer term, it can also affect the memory of the victim, as well as their sight.
Because it is a milder injury does not mean though that victims have to suffer in silence, and they should still make Gloucester car accident claims if their injury was caused by the actions of someone else.
The lifetime effects of brain injuries
Our brain is an amazing organ that controls everything we do, and it is normally well protected by our skull. But if it does become damaged it cannot function properly and then the messages it sends to the rest of our body can become confused or none existent.
This is why brain injury victims act so differently, and for the families it can be like living with a stranger. It can heal sometimes, but usually the effects of a brain injury last a lifetime.
Claiming for the devastation caused to your life
What you have to remember is that someone else has caused this devastation to you and your family’s lives, and they should not get away with it scot free. If the car accident they caused was because of dangerous driving of any sort, the police will prosecute them, and you can make a Gloucester car accident claim to get the compensation you so rightly deserve.
Claiming the compensation is a legal process, and should be dealt with by lawyers and solicitors that specialise in this area of the law. At Accident Advice Helpline all of our legal team are personal injury claims specialists, and you could not find better legal representation for your compensation claim.
