    Compensation for a head injury

    If you have suffered a head injury as a result of an accident which was not your fault, then a solicitor in Mitcheldean can help you make a claim for compensation (provided that the accident occurred within the last three years).

    No matter how your injury occurred, whether it was in a road traffic accident, out in public, as a result of a slip, trip or fall, or even if it happened whilst you were at work our in house solicitor in Mitcheldean will be able to help you make a claim against the person who is responsible.

    What compensation can a solicitor in Mitcheldean help you get?

    The amount of compensation you are likely to be awarded will vary depending on the severity of the injury you have sustained.

    In the first instance your solicitor in Mitcheldean will need you to provide them with access to your medical records. Not only will this help to establish that your injury occurred at the time you said it did (and can therefore be used as evidence to substantiate your claim) but it will also help to prove that you did not have an underlying injury to the same area prior to the accident. This can be important when determining the amount of compensation due, as there is a difference between an accident which caused an injury and one which made an already present condition worse.

    Your solicitor in Mitcheldean will also need to arrange for you to be assessed and examined by an independent medical expert. Depending on when you have decided to contact Accident Advice Helpline to start your claim this assessment may not take place until some time after your accident. This therefore gives the medical expert an opportunity to see how your injury has progressed with time, and whether or not you are still suffering from any after effects. If you have completely recovered your injury will receive less compensation than if it was severe enough to cause ongoing and longer term problems.

    Financial loss or out of pocket expenses

    Your solicitor in Mitcheldean will also be able to help you make a claim for other factors, such as financial loss or out of pocket expenses.

    Financial loss may be caused as a direct result of your having to take time away from work, or being unable to return to work as a result of your injury.

    In terms of expenses, these may be relatively minor, perhaps just covering the cost of travel to your medical expert appointment (remember to keep receipts), or may be more severe and include additional medical therapy, support or even paying for a carer to help you remain living in your own home.

    If you discuss these points with your solicitor in Mitcheldean they will be able to help you make a claim for all expenses you have incurred, and this will form part of the compensation you are awarded.
