Claiming compensation need not be one massive headache!
Head injuries are one of the most serious and unpredictable types of injury that can occur following your Mold road traffic accidents. Not only can the casualty rapidly deteriorate without warning, but the internal injuries may be difficult to diagnose at the scene of the accident.
If you, or some one close to you, have been injured in Mold road traffic accidents through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be legally entitled to pursue compensation for your serious head injury.
Symptoms of a serious head injury
A head injury may be suspected at the scene of Mold road traffic accidents if the casualty is:
- Unresponsive to simple instructions
- Unable to focus clearly; has vision problems
- Clear fluid flowing from the nose or ears
- Skull appears deformed
- Bruising around the eyes and ears
Diagnosing a serious head injury
Any casualty that sustains a head injury should be examined as soon as possible by a medical practitioner. They will diagnose the cause of the injury and to ensure that the risk of damage to the brain is potentially reduced. A head injury may cause bleeding between the skull and layer of the brain tissue causing swelling and pressure. This can cause the brain to become damaged and the tissue to die. A blood clot can form causing serious trauma to the brain and may have life threatening consequences, should it go undiagnosed.
Head injuries are categorised according to the Glasgow Coma Scale which indicates how serious a head injury is. A patient’s response to stimuli, verbal instructions and level of consciousness are all recorded against this scale and a score is given.
