    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    If you or someone you know ever suffers from a brain injury, the effects of this can be heartbreaking and devastating. It can change the victim forever, and greatly affect the lives of those close to them.

    If this happened in an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make an injury compensation claim using the solicitors in Macclesfield to help you. If the victim is not able to contact us themselves, a family member should to ensure that the victim does not lose out on the compensation they are entitled to.

    There are many different types of brain injury, just a few of them are:

    • Brain confusion
    • Bleeding inside the skull around the brain
    • Concussion – the mildest and most common of all brain injuries
    • Closed head injury
    • Penetrating head injury
    • Diffuse brain injury

    The severity of these injuries varies with concussion being the mildest and a penetrating brain injury being the worst. Even a concussion can have long term effects though, some victims are left with headaches and eye problems for the rest of their lives.

    If you, or a loved one, suffers a brain injury in an accident that was not your fault, the solicitors in Macclesfield should be contacted to help claim the compensation that is due.

    The different effects of a brain injury

    There are different effects that can happen if you suffer a brain injury. They can vary greatly, but it depends on how bad you injury is. Some examples are:

    • Difficulty with understanding or comprehending
    • Changes to the senses of small, taste and touch
    • A loss of, or altered, speech
    • Loss of memory
    • A shortened attention span and difficulty concentrating
    • The emotional reactions and behaviour  can change dramatically
    • A lack of co-ordination
    • Trouble with balancing and trouble walking
    • Anxiety and depression

    The person with the brain injury may not always fully understand what has happened to them. In the worst case scenario, they will not act like the person that they were and they could need 24-hour care.

    Because their injuries are internal, that means that some people react badly when they realise just how different the patient is, not understanding what they are going through. This  just makes the patient and the situation worse.

    This situation really does mean that you need to use solicitors in Macclesfield
