If you have been involved in a serious accident and sustained a head injury, it is possible for you to suffer a brain injury as a result.
A brain injury can come in many forms and many different levels of seriousness, but if you have suffered a very serious brain injury you may find it hard to do a number of things in the months and even years that follow.
One of the things that you can do if you have sustained a brain injury in a serious accident which was not your fault, is make head injury injury claims in Northumberland against the person who caused your accident. Here are some ways to do this when you may not feel as mentally able to do things as you could before.
Appoint a representative
In compensation claims you are able to appoint a representative for you, who will handle your claim on your behalf. You may ask a friend or family member to go to court and process your claim on your behalf, or you could just work with an experienced injury lawyer who is happy to take on your claim on your behalf and work for you to get the claim completed quickly and simply.
Wait a while
You have up to three years to get a compensation claim completed, so there really is no harm in waiting for a little while until your brain injury has started to get better and you feel more able to cope with a claim on your own.
In cases where you are unable to complete a claim because of your injury, it may be possible to extend the deadline, and you should ask an injury solicitor about this.
Making head injury claims in Northumberland
After a serious accident and brain injury, you should think carefully and work with experienced professionals to decide whether or not you have a good case for compensation or not, and whether you want to proceed with a claim.
