A serious head injury can be life-changing
A serious head injury can affect your life in a multitude of ways, especially if brain damage or a psychiatric disorder is the result. It may mean that you have to take time off work, either temporarily or permanently. This can affect your finances considerably, but it can also have a huge impact on your self-esteem. Such an injury may mean that you’re unable to carry out basic tasks that you previously took for granted and that you have to rely on others to help you go about your day to day activities. With all this in mind, it makes sense to claim compensation for your head injury.
Closed and open head injuries
There are two primary types of head injury – closed head injury and open head injury.
- A closed head injury is most common and refers to injuries where there has been a significant impact on the head but the bones of the skull remain intact. There is no visible wound, yet there may be hidden damage.
- An open head injury occurs when the skull is fractured and brain tissue is pierced. These injuries are also referred to as penetrating head injuries.
Whatever the nature of your head injury, it’s possible that you’re entitled to a significant compensation payout.
