There are some people who are more vulnerable to brain injuries, such as:
- The over 65s
- Those with conditions like haemophilia because of more bleeding
- Anyone on blood thinning drugs
- Where it is not the first head injury
Anyone can sustain a brain injury in an accident that was not their own fault, but the groups shown above are less likely to have a good recovery. They, like anyone else, can claim compensation if the injury is a result of an accident that was not their fault, and they may well seek the help of South Derbyshire car accident solicitors, who are experts in this field.
You could end up needing 24 hour care and not be able to live a normal life anymore, because of a brain injury that you have suffered in an accident that wasn’t your fault. The South Derbyshire car accident solicitors can explain the process of making an injury claim to someone else acting on your behalf, such as a family member.
