Suffered a serious head injury as a result of an accident?
Suffering an accident may be an every day occurrence for the teams of professional nurses and doctors who help us put our lives back together again. However, for the casualty who has sustained painful and debilitating injuries as a result of an accident, head injuries in Coatbridge may be life changing.
If you have sustained a serious head injury as the result of an accident, that was caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be considering finding out more about claiming personal injury compensation.
Head injuries in Coatbridge
Whilst any injury can be painful and debilitating for the casualty concerned, a head injury can have unpredictable consequences and the implications of a trauma to the head may be life long.
As the centre of our nervous system, the brain is responsible for processing, storing and coordinating neural information in our bodies. Speech, memory and coordination can all be adversely affected by damage to different areas of the brain.
A trauma to the head may result in a bleed which can become life threatening, causing a clot which may have to be removed by neurosurgery to prevent further damage. Bleeding can cause swelling and the resulting pressure can cause serious brain damage, if left undetected.
The casualty may be placed in an artificial coma to allow the head injury to settle, for the swelling to subside and for any bleeding to be monitored closely. Head injuries involving a brain injury are unpredictable and they require intensive care treatment to ensure that any changes in a casualty’s condition are detected promptly.
