    Need to make a head injury claim? An expert injury lawyer in Middlewich can help!

    Head injuries can be serious which can cause the casualty to be hospitalised for an extensive length of time in an intensive care unit and then in a rehabilitation centre to restore function and mobility.

    Head injuries can be caused as a result of a trauma to the head and neck following:

    • a road traffic accident such as a collision on a bike, motorcycle or vehicle as a driver, passenger or pedestrian
    • a slip, trip or fall particularly a fall from a considerable height such as a balcony, as a result of a high risk activity such as bungee jumping or through a fast paced contact sport such as boxing or rugby.
    • a work place industrial accident such as falling from a high work platform or scaffolding tower
    • a violent assault which results in a severe blow to the head from a heavy or solid object

    You may be able to claim compensation via an injury lawyer in Middlewich.

    Assessing the severity of a head injury

    Head injuries are predominantly assessed using the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) which utilises a scale of 3-15.  A scale of 8 indicates a severe head injury, however, patients can move up and down the scale over a period of time.  If a patient loses consciousness as a result of a head injury, then it is vital that they receive urgent medical attention to ascertain the extent of any internal injuries and to inform further treatment.  If there is bleeding in the brain this can cause swelling to occur which can lead to brain damage if it is left untreated.

    Making your claim

    Head injuries, especially those involving brain injury can cause devastating and life long effects and implications for the casualty.  Depending on which area of the brain is affected, means that they may have emotional, communication and language difficulties that may require intensive therapy to overcome. This can have an enormous strain on the family of the victim and mean that their lifestyle has to be adapted considerably to accommodate the inevitable challenges that a brain injury causes to a family.  All of these factors are taken into account when making a claim using an injury lawyer in Middlewich.
