    Have you had a serious head injury? Do you need to make a compensation claim? Call the injury solicitors in Eccles!

    All accidents can result in painful and distressing injuries and for many people the effects of an accident can be felt for many weeks and months following the accident.  However, if you have sustained a serious head injury then the period of rehabilitation can be lengthy and multi-stranded.

    Many casualties of head injuries require physiotherapy, psychotherapy, occupational therapy, as well as assistance to become independent again.  The effects of a serious head injury can be life long and may alter the personality of the casualty and their abilities, making life very difficult for the family as well as the victim.

    How are head injuries caused?

    Head injuries can be caused by any type of accident or incident that involves a trauma to the neck or head.  This may be as a result of:

    • Road traffic accident
    • Collision
    • Motorcycle accident
    • Cycling accident
    • Riding accident
    • Construction accident
    • Industrial accident
    • Falls from height
    • Slips and trips
    • Accidents abroad on holiday
    • Travelling accidents
    • Educational accidents

    How are head injuries diagnosed?

    Head injuries are diagnosed on the scene of the accident by a paramedic or doctor in the case of an air ambulance.  The casualty’s response to stimuli, level of consciousness and overall condition will establish the degree of severity.  The medical professional at the scene will quickly determine the level of injury using the Glasgow Coma Scale and a reading of 8 or less indicates a serious head injury which will require the patient to be rapidly transferred to a hospital.

    At the hospital, the medical team will use CT, MRI and x rays to determine the exact location and extent of an injury.  If a bleed is detected, then the patient may require urgent surgical intervention to release the pressure on the brain and reduce any swelling, to minimise the risk of temporary or permanent brain damage.
