    South Derbyshire car accident


    South Derbyshire car accident

    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.

    Symptoms of brain injuries and how South Derbyshire car accident lawyers can help

    Some of the more common symptoms of a brain injury are:

    • Headache
    • Dizziness
    • Nausea and vomiting
    • Loss of consciousness
    • Loss of balance and co-ordination
    • Confusion and slurred speech
    • Glassy eyes or vacant stare
    • Changes in emotional reactions
    • Feeling stunned or dazed
    • Double vision or seeing stars
    • Difficulty with memory and lack of concentration

    Any victim who has taken a nasty knock to the head in an accident should not be left alone for at least 24 hours, as the symptoms can take a while to start. If any signs at all start to appear, they should be sent to hospital immediately.
