If you have an accident which was not your own fault and suffer a brain injury as a result, then this could have life-changing effects for you, as well as your family and friends, too.
What if you need 24-hour care, or you can no longer live in your home? These are extreme cases — you could suffer from mild injuries as well, such as cuts and bruises or concussion, although this could well cause permanent pain and discomfort.
Whether it is you, or someone you know who suffers a brain injury through an accident that was not their own fault, you should contact the solicitors in Heston at Accident Advice Helpline so they can help you to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Our solicitors in Heston will deal with a brain injury claim
There are many brain injuries that can result from an accident that was not your fault, just a few of them being:
- Diffuse brain injury, where the brain is thrown around within the skull. As the skull has a rough inner surface, this can cause damage to the brain.
- Brain confusion, which involves bruised or swollen brain tissue that occurs when the skull is cracked or broken.
- Anoxic brain injury, where the brain is starved of oxygen.
- Hypoxic brain injury, where the brain receives some oxygen but not enough.
- Hematoma, where a blood vessel is damaged causing heavy bleeding around the brain.
- Closed head injury, which is where the impact has not broken the skull.
- Penetrating head injury, where an object fractures the skull and enters the brain.
In this list are just a few of the different types of brain injuries that can occur in an accident. If you, or someone close to you, has had this happen in an accident that was the fault of someone else, contacting our solicitors in Heston should be done fairly soon.
The changes that can occur from a brain injury
The human brain is the hub of everything to do with your body, so it should come as no surprise that damage can have extreme consequences and change your life completely.
The problems that could happen to you are things like anxiety, depression and the inability to understand or comprehend, which are not visible injuries but can have a huge impact on the whole family of the victim.
