Delayed reactions and symptoms
One of the dangers with a head injury, is that symptoms often don’t appear until sometime after the event; sometimes even weeks later.
You simply can’t afford to take any chances. Therefore, following any sort of head injury, you should seek immediate medical help.
What to look out for following a head injury
If you’ve suffered a head injury yourself, or you’re with someone else who has, then here are some signs to look out for that could indicate cause for concern:
- Drowsiness when someone would normally be wide awake
- Chronic headache that does not respond to painkillers
- Confused, or odd behaviour
- Sudden physical disability (e.g. weak or shaky arms or legs)
- Dizziness or disorientation
- Problems with vision
- Blood seeping from the ear or nose
- Sudden hearing difficulty in either or both ears
- Any irregularity in breathing
- Fitting or convulsions
If any of these symptoms manifest themselves, it is important to obtain immediate medical help.
Getting help from solicitors in Frome
In terms of claiming compensation, the same rules apply for head injury as for any other injury. In order to qualify, the blame for the injury must be attributable to a third party. Before thinking about raising a personal injury claim, there are some other considerations which must also be taken into account.
- The injury must have been sustained within the last 3 years
- You’ll need medical proof of the injury you’ve sustained
If you can meet this criteria, it’s likely that you’ll be able to make a claim and injury solicitors in Frome could be able to help.
