    Bump to the head? Knocked unconscious and suffered a serious injury? Follow our claims guide!

    Head injuries are amongst some of the most serious injuries that can be sustained following an accident or incident.  A casualty with a head injury can be susceptible to a sudden deterioration in their condition, as their condition can change rapidly and without warning.

    If you, or some one close to you, has suffered a serious head injury as the result of an accident or incident that wasn’t their fault within the last 3 years, then you may be eligible to pursue personal injury compensation for your Kilmarnock car accident.

    What is a serious head injury?

    A serious head injury is defined as a severe trauma to the head.  The casualty may be:

    • rendered unconscious by the trauma
    • experience severe bleeding or swelling from the head
    • be left confused
    • be disorientated
    • unable to speak clearly
    • have blurred or double vision
    • loss of memory

    How are serious head injuries diagnosed?

    A serious head injury caused as the result of a Kilmarnock car accident may be obvious at the scene of the accident.  However, if the patient has multiple injuries, then the full extent of the injury may not be apparent until they are examined in hospital.  Medical practitioners use the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) to monitor and assess a patient’s response to stimuli, verbal instructions and level of consciousness.

    This scale can also indicate a deterioration in a patient’s condition, if the patient experiences a bleed in the brain or swelling.  A score of 8 or less indicates a serious head injury and the patient may be unconscious and confused.

    Serious head injuries may be diagnosed using a CT scan which can pinpoint the exact location and extent of a serious head injury following a Kilmarnock car accident.  These clear and precise images are useful for the medical team, to inform them if immediate surgical intervention is required to relieve bleeding and swelling in the brain.
