Injury lawyers in Portbury

When accidents happen and injuries occur, we all hope they will not be too severe. One of the worst injuries that can happen is to the brain, they can change the victim for ever, and alter the lives of all around them.

As one of the most fragile parts of our bodies, the brain does not accept injury well and does not heal well, and although some of the problems created from a brain injury can be temporary, mainly they are a permanent problem. If you, or someone you know, sustains a brain injury in an accident for which someone else was to blame, you should discuss the situation with injury lawyers in Portbury.

The severity of a brain injury and why you might need injury lawyers in Portbury

The severity of a brain injury can vary greatly from concussion as the mildest to a penetrating brain injury at its worst. The effects on the victim can be devastating and it is not unusual for them to have no memory of life before the accident. This can be heartbreaking for the loved ones, for the family who still have to live with this condition.  If a brain injury happens to you, or anyone you know, in an accident that was the fault of someone else, you should discuss the situation with injury lawyers in Portbury.

The effects of a brain injury

Like all injuries, the effects of a brain injury will differ from victim to victim but may include:

  • Shortening of attention span
  • Loss of or altered speech
  • Memory loss
  • Lack of concentration
  • Speed of though
  • Emotional reactions
  • Behavior changes
  • Lack of co-ordination
  • Difficulty with balance
  • Difficulty with walking
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Difficulty with understanding or comprehending
  • Altered sense of smell, taste or touch

One of the biggest problems for the victim is that they do not always understand what has happened to them, the injuries are not always visible so the reactions they get from other people can be puzzling for them.

Making a brain injury claim

You can see from the effects of a brain injury, that the victim may not be in a fit state to make an injury claim themselves. This should not stop them receiving compensation, in fact it is even more important that they do, as they may need care that will have to be paid for.  A family member should contact Accident Advice Helpline on their behalf, give all the details of the accident and resulting injuries, we will take it from there.
