Head injuries are one of the most unpredictable injuries that can be sustained following an accident or incident. Any trauma to the head or neck can result in devastating injuries. These could have prolonged or even lifelong consequences for the victim. You will need the services of a top law firm in Colwyn Bay or elsewhere to claim compensation.
If you’ve had an accident or incident within the last three years, and you’ve sustained a head injury, you can only claim compensation if the blame lies with a third party. Ideally, you will also need to have received professional medical treatment for the injury too.
Why head injuries are so unpredictable
The victim of a head injury might be rendered unconscious and may stop breathing. It may be difficult to diagnose the severity and type of head injury at the scene of an accident. This could result in a victim’s condition deteriorating rapidly and without prior warning. Head injuries are unpredictable for the following reasons:
- An injury to the head may result in bleeding between the skull and layer of brain tissue, causing swelling. This swelling may cause brain damage, unless the pressure is released through surgery.
- Depending on which areas of the brain have been injured, the injury may cause changes in a victim’s speech, memory, language, and cognitive functioning.
- An injury to the neck may damage the cervical spinal column, causing paralysis and serious neural damage that can have lifelong consequences.
It all adds up to the fact that a head injury needs immediate, professional medical treatment.
