Head injury advice in Kingston upon Thames
Head injuries can occur as a result of all kinds of accidents – road traffic accidents, work related incidents or even slips, trips or falls. Most head injuries are minor, resulting in fairly mild and temporary symptoms such as headaches, nausea, mild dizziness or blurred vision.
However, some head injuries can also result in brain injuries, and these result in more serious symptoms, like:
- Unconsciousness – this can be brief, i.e. concussion, or longer
- Fits or seizures
- Vomiting repeatedly
- Hearing loss or double vision
- Blood or clear fluid coming from the nose and ears
Any of these symptoms suggest a more serious injury, and you should go to A&E or call the emergency services on 999 immediately if you experience them.
Regardless of the severity of your injuries, government legislation entitles you to make a claim for personal injury compensation if the accident was caused by someone else.
Personal injury compensation can help you to recover some or all of the associated costs of your injury. If you had to take time off work to recover, for instance, you may have experienced a loss of earnings – especially if you were on a reduced salary or statutory sick pay.
You might also have incurred medical fees (including prescription charges) or travel expenses to and from GP or hospital visits. In more serious cases, you may also have had to pay for personal care or help with domestic duties.
Compensation can also cover pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium, depending on your injuries.
