Whether you live or work in Knightsbridge, if you suffer injuries that needed medical treatment from an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim using solicitors in Knightsbridge to help you.
We all hope that your injury is nothing as serious as a brain injury, and that it is something small like cuts and bruises, but unfortunately many people do suffer such a serious injury.
Have you suffered head injuries in Knightsbridge?
You could suffer one of many different types of brain injury. Here are the more common ones:
- Concussion – this is the mildest and most common of all brain injuries;
- Closed head injury – this is an impact to the head where no cracks or breaks appear in the skull;
- Penetrating head injury – this is where something breaks the skull and penetrates the brain;
- Bleeding inside the skull around the brain;
- Diffuse brain injury – if the head is heavily shaken about, the brain gets knocked against the skull. This injury can harm the brain in several areas; and
- Brain confusion – this is where the brain swells, usually after a crack or break in the skull.
You, or someone else on your behalf, should seriously consider making a claim for head injuries in Knightsbridge if you’ve been hurt in an accident that was not your fault.
The side effects of a brain injury
The side effects of any brain injuries can be life-changing and devastating for the person involved and their family. A brain injury can make you feel like you are living with a different person, and some of these effects include:
- Difficulty with understanding or comprehending;
- Finding concentrating difficult;
- Speed of thought;
- The emotional reactions can change dramatically;
- A loss of, or altered, speech;
- Loss of memory;
- A shortened attention span;
- General behaviour changes;
- Changes to the senses of small, taste and touch;
- A lack of coordination;
- Trouble with balancing; and
- Difficulty walking.
All of these are side effects that can make life difficult for all involved, which is why using the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline should be considered.
