There are many serious injuries that can result from an accident that was not your own fault, but one of the worst is a brain injury, as this can ruin the lives of the victim and their loved ones. This can be the cause of a personal injury claim in Corby, when a family have had their lives turned upside down by someone else’s negligence.
The effects a brain injury can have and why innocent victims should make a personal injury claim in Corby
Victims of brain injuries can be like totally different people to what they were before the accident, depending on what part of the brain has been damaged. Not all victims will suffer all the symptoms, but they can include:
- Memory problems
- Lack of understanding
- Mood swings
- Impaired vision
- Behavioural problems
- Quick changes in body temperature
These are just a very small sample of what a victim could experience, but often the worst problem is that the victim does not realise there is anything wrong with them, and cannot understand why people react to them differently.
For some it is even worse than this though, they could be in a vegetative state for the rest of their lives.
This sort of injury does not just affect the innocent victims of an accident, everyone close to them has their life changed as well. Whether it is because they have to become a carer for the victim, or make regular visits to hospitals or care homes, these are all things that were not part of life before.

In a brain injury situation, the victim is not always capable of making a claim for themselves, but they should not lose their compensation because of their mental state. A family member should get in touch with us, and make the personal injury claim on their behalf.
