    Purbeck car accident

    Unfortunately, we sometimes have to deal with a Purbeck car accident claim where the innocent victim has sustained a brain injury. Their lives can be changed through no fault of their own, and the lives of those close to them as in severe cases, they are no longer the same person, and there is no hope of recovery.

    It is not only in a  Purbeck car accident that this can happen, brain injuries are sustained in many different accidents, such as:

    • Accidents at work
    • Slip, trip and fall accidents
    • Holiday accidents
    • Motorbike accidents
    • Cycling accidents
    • Horse riding accidents

    These are just a few of the accidents in which innocent victims sustain brain injuries, as the brain is a very delicate organ that is easily damaged and not very easily repaired. It is usually well protected by our skull, but sometimes even that is not strong enough to stop a brain injury.

    How a brain injury sustained in a Purbeck car accident might affect you

    Each accident, injury and victim is different and the way a person is affected by an injury will be different as they all cope with injuries in different ways. Some of the more usual side effects of a brain injury can include:

    • Shortening of attention span
    • Loss of or altered speech
    • Memory loss
    • Lack of concentration
    • Speed of thought
    • Emotional reactions
    • Behavior changes
    • Lack of co-ordination
    • Difficulty with balance and walking
    • Anxiety and depression
    • Difficulty with understanding or comprehending
    • Altered sense of smell, taste or touch

    Making a brain injury claim after a Purbeck car accident

    Victims of brain injuries are often no longer able to deal with their own affairs, and a family member has to handle things for them. This is no problem as far as we are concerned, because at Accident Advice Helpline we believe they should still have the compensation they are entitled to, no matter how bad they are.  A family member should contact us on their behalf, give all the details of the accident and resulting injuries, we will take it from there – we want the family to have as little stress as possible, they will have more than enough already because of what has happened.

    For over 14 years we have been helping claimants receive the compensation they deserve and among the many thousands we have helped there have been numerous brain injury victims.

    Contact our helpline on 0800 180 4123 and speak to one of our advisors. You will find them friendly and compassionate and they will take the worry out of your hands. And the family have no need to worry about how to fund the claim, as they will not need to pay us any money for the claim to be started, or if the claim is lost. The No Win, No Fee agreement takes care of the finances, and that is the only way we handle claims.
