If someone you know has sustained a brain injury in an accident that was not their fault, they may no longer be capable of handling their own affairs. If this is the case, someone should call our Lincolnshire law firm on their behalf so that they do not lose out on the compensation to which they are legally and morally entitled.
Have you been injured in Lincolnshire?
The brain is one of the most delicate organs in our body, and is normally well protected by our skull. It controls everything we do, including things that we take for granted such as breathing, which is something we would not manage without our brain.
If the brain is injured in an accident, the effects can be life-changing, and if the accident has been caused by someone else, the victim should be making a claim for compensation from the guilty party. Our law firm can help you to do this.
When the brain cannot function properly, it can affect even small things that we do every day, like getting dressed, eating a meal, or maybe taking a shower. It is not unusual for brain injury victims to need 24-hour care, and many of them spend the rest of their lives in care homes because their families cannot look after them properly.
If you’ve been injured in Lincolnshire and you want to find out more about making a claim, why not contact us?
Different types of brain injuries
There are many different types of brain injury, ranging from ones that will cause no more than a headache for a few days, to injuries which leave the victim in a vegetative state. Some of the more common injuries with which our law firm deals include:
- Brain bleed;
- Penetrating brain injury;
- Closed head injury, where the skull is not broken;
- Brain confusion, where brain tissue is bruised or swollen; and
- Diffuse brain injury, where the brain is thrown around within the skull.
Concussion is the mildest of all of these, but even that can have long-term effects for victims and is not always as quickly healed as people may think.
