Looking at brain injuries with injury solicitors in Holt
Some injuries, such as brain injuries, can be life changing, not just for the victim but for those close to them as well. If this has happened to you in an accident that was not your fault some time in the last three years, you may need to use injury solicitors in Holt to make a personal injury claim.
There are numerous types of brain injury, and the effects they have on victims can vary greatly depending on the character of the victim. Some of the more common ones are:
- Penetrating head injury;
- Diffuse brain injury;
- Brain confusion;
- Bleeding inside the skull around the brain;
- Concussion; and
- Closed head injury.
Concussion is the mildest of brain injuries, but even this can have long-term effects, the sight of the victim often being the problem.
Brain injury symptoms
Some of the symptoms brain injury victims might suffer are:
- Anxiety and depression;
- Difficulty with understanding or comprehension;
- Altered senses;
- The speech can be affected;
- Memory problems;
- Lack of concentration;
- Slowness of thoughts;
- Emotional reactions can change, as can general behaviour;
- A lack of co-ordination and trouble balancing; and
- Difficulty walking.
Victims of this type of injury often need 24-hour specialist care, and it is not unusual for them to have to spend the rest of their lives in a care home. If they are able to stay at home, they may well be in a situation where they cannot be left on their own.
