Getting head injury advice in Merthyr Tydfil
If you’ve suffered a head injury the effects can be severe. It may be long lasting or it may be something which can be healed in time. Even so you may suffer various issues which you’re not fully aware of. Indeed one of the biggest problems for people who suffer head injuries is that they are not always compensated to the full amount they deserve.
What we need to do, therefore, is adequately assess the circumstances of your accident to work out if you can claim and to ensure every aspect of your injuries has been assess.
About your claim
You can claim compensation if you can prove that the accident was not your fault, that someone else was to blame and it happened within the last three years. You will also have to show that the injuries you’ve suffered have had a significant impact on your quality of life.
Assuming, for a moment, you are able to prove all that compensation will be assessed by looking at three different things: how badly you have been hurt, how much the treatment is costing you and any wages you’ve had to miss out on as a result of your accident.
Getting full value for a claim
Sadly, many people come away from a claim after getting a raw deal and don’t even know about it. Although they may have won their case they may not have had their injuries properly assessed which means things can be overlooked.
Doctors are not immune to mistakes and initial medical treatments can miss things. Complications can also arise later which will affect the speed of your recovery. It’s always vitally important that you understand everything about your injuries and the length of time you will take in your recovery.
One thing which can go unnoticed is psychological problems. These can occur with head injuries but because they are not always clearly visible they are less easy to diagnose. If you’re suffering from depression, or find yourself drinking more than normal it could be because you’re suffering from a mental trauma from the accident. This should all be accounted for as part of your personal injury claim.
