Whether you are on your way to school, on your way to work, or if you are just having a nice day out, a road traffic accident could happen to you at any time. It does not matter who you are, if you are unlucky enough to become the innocent victim of a car accident then you should think about contacting the solicitors from Accident Advice Helpline to see if you are entitled to claim for compensation by making Mid Sussex car accident claims.
Making Mid Sussex car accident claims and suffering a brain injury
There are lots of different types of injuries that you could suffer from in a road traffic accident. One of the more serious injuries is a brain injury, and even suffering from a milder brain injury, such as a concussion, can have terrible consequences for the rest of your life. Concussion is more than the headaches people associate with it, it can affect memory and thought patterns that for some victims never improve after the accident.
Everyone close to the brain injury victim can have their life changed as well, partly because with some of the more serious injuries, the character of the victim changes completely and they become like a stranger.
Your skull protects the brain normally, but that can even become damaged because of an accident that wasn’t your fault. Your brain can then malfunction and start sending the wrong messages to your body.
With the severest of brain injuries, you could become paralysed and have to spend the rest of your life in a home and need 24 hour care.
If you are unfortunate enough to be in a vegetative state through an accident that wasn’t your fault, then your family are allowed to make Mid Sussex car accident claims on your behalf.
This could be a very distressing time for your family and friends, and if this accident was through no fault of your own, then the person responsible for your accident should be made to pay compensation for all of the pain and suffering they have caused.
