Head and brain injuries are not an uncommon result of accidents, and the accidents in which they occur are not always the fault of the person that has been injured. Any injury caused by someone else can entitle the victim to make a Treharris no win no fee* injury claim for compensation, and with this type of injury the victim and their family might need the compensation more than ever.
The brain injuries that could result in a Treharris no win no fee* injury claim
There are many types of different brain injuries and even the mildest and most common of them, concussion, can cause more problems than some people realise. Concussion not only causes the headaches that it is renowned for, it can also affect the memory and eyesight of victims, and can last a very long time. Sometimes victims do not totally recover, and suffer periodic headaches and impaired vision for the rest of their life.
There are brain injuries where the brain is shaken inside the skull, and this can cause damage to different parts of the brain in different victims, and it is an injury that some recover from quite well, and others are never the same again, depending on how much and how severe the damage to the brain is.
One of the worst types of brain injury is where something breaks the skull and enters the brain tissues. If the victim survives this sort of injury, they will probably need 24 hour care for the rest of their life, or could be in a vegetative state.
Whichever brain injury is sustained in an accident that was not the victims fault, their families life will be affected as well as theirs. There could be so many extra things to pay for, and of course the family will want the best possible care for their loved one.
All of these things take money, which is why the family should contact Accident Advice Helpline about making a Treharris no win no fee* injury claim. The money can be used to give the family some financial stability and to let them pay for the extras that can make the victims life a little more comfortable.
