Claiming compensation for a head injury in Kingspark
One of the many different injuries that personal injury solicitors in Kingspark handle is head injuries. Though not the most common type of injury, a head injury can have serious consequences and are sometimes even fatal. Accidents such as falling from a height, motorcycle accidents, cycling accidents or slips and trips can cause a head injury.
What is a head injury?
Any injury to any area above the neck can be referred to as a head injury. Symptoms vary depending on how severe the injury is. Less serious injuries include cuts and abrasions; more serious injuries which include trauma to the brain may include concussion, fits, difficulty speaking or staying awake, and problems with hearing or sight. Loss of teeth and disfigurement are also sometimes caused.
If you or a loved one have suffered a head injury through no fault of your own, then injury solicitors in Kingspark can help you to win the compensation you deserve.
Diagnosing a head injury
After an accident, if you suspect a head injury you should seek medical attention straight away. Healthcare professionals may use the Glasgow Coma Scale to assess the seriousness of your injury. Further tests may be carried out by X-ray, CT or MRI scan.
Severe head injuries should be treated in hospital. Serious cases may require surgery. If the head injury has caused problems to speech, hearing or mobility, then therapy may also be required.
