Head Injuries – run deeper than you think!
All head injuries are serious. Taking a knock to the head can have serious consequences; after all, your skull protects the most vital organ in your body – the brain.
Your brain controls everything from mood and emotion, through to the main control centre that houses your nerves, moving your limbs in the lightning fast reactions that we have come to expect.
When you injure your head you can suffer the effects for some time after; as our specialist injury solicitor Brendon will tell you. They have worked with many customers who have suffered head injuries, from being concussed to having life changing injuries.
How did you suffer your head injury?
There are many accidents that our expert injury solicitor Brendon have come across and worked with over the last decade or more of practice, including;
- Road traffic accidents
- Falls, including falls from height
- Being knocked over, sometimes by cars and also by other vehicles
- Being injured as a result of an attack or mugging
- Being knocked from a bicycle or motorbike
- In fact, any accident in which you received your head injury is ‘covered’ by AAH and their legal teams!
Are you eligible to claim compensation?
The criteria for claiming compensation is clearly written in law and only if all three of these conditions are met, can we and your injury solicitor Brendon proceed with your compensation claim for your head injury.
Below is a quick guide to these 3 factors, although they are more complex; we suggest not deciding on whether to make a claim or not only after talking to one of our representatives by calling 0800 689 0500.
- Factor 1: The 3 Year Deadline
If you have been injured and intend on lodging a compensation case with the help of one of our injury solicitor Brendon, you will need to do so within 3 years from the date of your accident. This is a firm deadline; there is no flexibility.
- Factor 2: The Not My Fault Accident
The incident or accident in which you received your head injury must not have been your fault, in any way at all. Cleary, your injury solicitor Brendon will work in this on your behalf, gathering necessary evidence from Police or other relevant authorities, as well as any witnesses.
- Factor 3: Medical Treatment
Anyone who has suffered a head injury should seek immediate medical attention! But, in order to make a claim for compensation, as well as meeting the other two aforementioned factors, you must also have sought medical attention from your head injury.
Need help or just advice? Either way, get honest advice from AAH by calling us today on 0800 689 0500.
