It was only a minor concussion, surely it does not warrant a head injury solicitor?
The complex nature of the brain and the far reaching effect any damage to it can cause has led to the birth of the head injury solicitor. These devotees of the injury law have specialised in one particular area of injury law, that of head injury. Even the most minor injury can have a devastating effect on the quality of life even something as simple as a concussion.
A head injury solicitor realises this and will guide victims through the process of compensation. They understand the real meaning of the medical terms and what the implications are of those terms. Medical specialists may often use the term moderate head injury. Non-medical or legal professionals, other than a head injury solicitor, may see this as just an average injury due to our conditioning and understanding of the word moderate. 63% of the 500,000 head injury victims every year whose injuries are termed as moderate, will have a life changing disability that will need specialist care or treatment for the rest of their lives.
These kind of statistics start to cause an awakening as to the incredible niche field of these specialist solicitors work in and the invaluable knowledge they possess. Reputable companies recognising the importance of this will have already formed strategic alliances with the best solicitors. Accident Advice Helpline are one such company who have over 200 strategic legal partners waiting to help members of the public who have unwittingly become innocent victims of head injuries.
Perhaps more than any other injury, head injuries have the most life threatening consequences both when they happen, and also as those effected try to piece together their lives as they start on the road to recovery.
At the beginning of this article, we mentioned concussions as being minor, but of course the point is that no head injury is minor and these specialist solicitors will home in on this fact. Concussions are finally being treated with the care and attention they deserve. It was originally thought that a concussion was not serious and with a little rest, a full recovery could be made. More recent times have led the medical profession to re-think this, their view is that more permanent damage is actually likely. Perhaps we can finally realise that the wet sponge and ice may not be all that is required with a head injury, and that the service of a head injury solicitor could be just what the doctor ordered.
