    Personal injury claims in Rhondda Cynon Taf

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Rhondda Cynon Taf

    The brain is one of the most fragile parts of our bodies and is normally well protected by our skull. But it is easily injured in the event of a head injury, and if this happens to you in an accident that was not your fault, you should consider making personal injury claims in Rhondda Cynon Taf.

    A family member can make personal injury claims in Rhondda Cynon Taf on your behalf

    Severe brain injuries can be life changing and if the victim is so badly injured they are not capable of dealing with their own affairs, let alone a personal injury claim. A family member should contact Accident Advice Helpline on their behalf, as they should not lose out on their compensation just because they are not well enough to make the claim.

    There are numerous brain injuries that could happen, just a few of them are:

    • Concussion, the mildest form of and most common head injury
    • Closed head injury is where there is an impact to the skull, but nothing is broken
    • Penetrating head injury happens when an object fractures the skull and enters the brain
    • Brain confusion is caused by the brain becoming bruised or swollen when the skull is cracked or broken
    • Bleeding inside the skull around the brain
    • Diffuse brain injury is where the head has been shaken around and the brain has knocked against the skull. This can cause injuries in several parts of the brain.
    • Bleeding between the skull and the brain

    Any one of these is severe enough to warrant making personal injury claims in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
