Head injuries are among the most serious that you can suffer, having the potential to cause serious and even life-changing damage. They can also take several hours to present any symptoms, making them among the most dangerous injuries. Seeking head injury advice in Oadby and Wigston can not only help you to claim compensation, but to cope with the after-effects.
All accidents have the potential to be distressing and traumatic, but head injuries can leave innocent victims completely unaware as to what has happened and even where they are. Common symptoms include dizziness, nausea and even amnesia, affecting your ability to do what might seem like routine activities in the short or long-term.
Doctors are keen to keep a close eye on anyone who has sustained a head injury just to ensure that the symptoms have all presented themselves and been treated before allowing those affected to leave their care.
Take head injury advice in Oadby and Wigston
They may also advise that you take a break from work – and especially from activities such as driving or operating machinery – to make sure that you are fully recovered from the injuries.
For some this could be particularly difficult to deal with, especially if you are the kind of person who needs to be busy or who brings in the majority of the money to the household, with a break from work resulting in a drop in income at a time when funds are already difficult enough to come by.
This could mean that a lot of potential compensation claimants choose to pay their monthly bills rather than making a claim, even if they’re entitled to do so. There are plenty of eligible claimants who have missed out on thousands in compensation for that very reason.
At Accident Advice Helpline we want to make sure that that doesn’t happen, and work on a 100% no-win no-fee basis which means there are no upfront costs to pay for legal representation; and you can get head injury advice in Oadby and Wigston and make a claim for up to three years after the date of your accident – so it might not be too late.
