In Cheshire lies a large village and a civil parish known as Lymm, which is adorned with listed and unlisted historical buildings. The name was derived from the Celtric meaning ‘running water’ due to a stream that flowed through this village. The Bridgewater Canal passes through the centre of the village.
In this rural settlement you may watch football at Lymm Rugby Football Club, play golf, ride a horse at the Burfane Lane Farm or drive to Warrington with friends for pleasure. However during this there is always the risk of someone getting involved in a road traffic accident, causing damages such as a brain injury.
The first thing to do of course would be to call emergency services and ensure that you do all that is necessary to help those who are injured. Later, you may search for an injury claims solicitor in Lymm either online or in a local phone book.

Making a claim through an injury claims solicitor in Lymm
Common symptoms of brain injury include severe headaches, drowsiness, and loss of consciousness from time to time, confusion, seizures, coma, nausea and vomiting. In severe brain injuries the patient who can be represented by an injury claims solicitor in Lymm from Accident Advice Helpline, may be in a vegetative state. In such serious conditions sedatives and paralytics are used to treat the patient. CT or MRI scanning is performed.
A brain injury can be fatal so immediate treatment is crucial even for minor brain injuries. Patients should be closely observed because their condition can deteriorate when symptoms worsen.
- Fatigue – tiredness and dizziness are common.
- Haemorrhage – when there is bleeding under the skull or in the brain. Haemorrhage within the brain is harder to treat than when it is outside the brain. Surgery is usually performed to drain blood so pressure in the brain can be released.
- Nerve damage – this is noticeable. When there is damage of the nerve that controls eye muscles one eye does not move.
- Cerebral contusion – this occurs when the brain tissue is bruised. Treatment involves releasing pressure in the brain.
- Concussion – this is also referred to as traumatic brain injury. Loss of consciousness and vision are common symptoms. The patient can be in a coma. The brain can become bruised by being hit by an object or by the skull itself when it is broken. In many head injury problems involving children, cerebral concussion is the most common.
- Fatality – the most severe injuries can lead to death.
