    About concussion

    A concussion is a brain injury that onsets following a blow to the head.

    When the head comes into violent contact with a hard surface, the brain is shaken against the skull, the impact of which causes it to swell. This can lead to a number of unpleasant symptoms, such as confusion, blurred vision, trouble sleeping, difficulty remembering things, tearfulness and anger, problems with balance, and many other side effects. Concussions can occur to varying degrees, but those that suffer serious injuries can often experience post-concussion depression as well.

    If you have been in a public transport accident in Thurrock, you may well suffer a concussion. If your head is hit against the seatback or headrest, the window, handrail or indeed anywhere else at speed, you could sustain a debilitating brain injury. If this accident took place within the past three years, and did so as a direct result of someone else’s negligence, you could be owed financial compensation.

    Who was at fault?

    It can often be the case with public transport accidents that it is not immediately clear who is at fault.

    For example, is the driver or operator liable? Or the company responsible for track maintenance? Someone responsible for vehicle maintenance? If you are not sure, don’t just assume you can’t make a claim – contact Accident Advice Helpline. For years, we have been helping innocent people seek financial compensation following accidents for which they were not to blame. Even in complicated cases, we can find a way to ensure those innocent injured parties are not left out of pocket.
