Have you sustained a head injury in a recent accident that was someone else’s fault? If so, and you’ve seen a medical professional for your injuries, you might be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline offers advice on personal injury claims in Malvern Hills and the rest of the UK at no upfront cost.
Personal injury claims in Malvern Hills
Personal injuries can be all kinds of injuries, but those to the head can be the most immediately concerning. Symptoms of a minor head injury include mild headache, mild blurred vision and nausea, while those of a major one include loss of consciousness, fits or seizures, problem with the senses, or clear fluid or blood coming out the nose or ears.
If you experience any of these, you should go to A&E, although if the symptoms show a serious head injury, you should do so immediately. Immediate observation, testing and possible surgery is required in major head injury due to the potential for serious damage to the brain.
Thankfully, most people who are admitted to A&E for injuries like these go home within 48 hours, although even then it’s still very important to ensure that you look after yourself and take time to heal so as to avoid complications such as infection.
However, taking time off work to recover can be costly. If you were on a reduced salary or even statutory sick pay while you were off, you’ll have experienced a loss of earnings, and potentially a significant one. Add to that medical fees for further treatments, and travel expenses to and from GP and hospital appointments and the costs can really stack up, impacting on your ability to meet your everyday bills, and ultimately causing financial difficult.
That’s why government legislation entitles you to make a claim for compensation if the accident was someone else’s fault, took place within the last three years, and you’ve seen a medical professional about your injury. As these cases can be complex, an experienced solicitor will be able to advise you on exactly what you are eligible to claim for, and how much you can expect to claim. Claims made with a solicitor attract on average 275% more than those where the claimant represents themselves, so working with a solicitor can get you a bigger pay out.
