If you have had an accident that has resulted in concussion or any other injury to your head then there is a good chance that you will need to seek head injury advice in Oxford. It can be tempting not to bother seeking advice from anyone if you think that there is nothing that can be done; however, you will be doing yourself a disservice.
The simple fact of the matter is that if your injury was caused as a result of an accident that you were not responsible for then there is every chance you will be able to make a claim for compensation. However, you can only do that if there is evidence that you were indeed injured as a result of an accident.
Get evidence by seeking head injury advice in Oxford
The best way to get evidence of your injuries, whether it’s a head injury or anything else is to seek medical attention. When you go to your GP or you go to the hospital your visit anything that is discussed at that meeting will be documented on your medical records. This will include the symptoms that you have presented with, any treatment that is required or any further investigations such as x-rays that have been requested.
We will ask you to provide us with authority to access these medical records and use them on your behalf as part of the claims process. This will provide enough evidence for what you have been through and will also demonstrate that you were not suffering from any of the same issues prior to the accident occurring. Therefore this will show that the accident itself caused your injuries and therefore you are entitled to compensation.
