Head injury as the result of an accident
A common problem suffered as the result of an accident is head injury. Head injuries are such that they can leave the victim feeling ill, suffering a concussion or suffering from long term severe problems long after the accident. A head injury can lead to problems with memory (both short and long term) which can have a knock on effect when it comes to the sufferer’s ability to work and carry out their duties effectively. Accident Advice Helpline and our ‘no win, no fee*’ March solicitors are experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to dealing with these type of injuries. But what sorts of problems can a head injury cause?
- Loss of short term or long term memory
- Inability to concentrate
- Panic attacks
- Blurred or double vision
- Loss of sight
- Loss of hearing
- Cognitive problems (ability to think clearly)
Depending on the severity of the head injury some accident victims may find that they are hospitalised for a long period of time and suffer what is known as TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). This can leave them suffering from many of the above list and also be unable to return to work either in the long term or in some instances at all. Head injuries do not just affect the brain – they can also affect the eyes, ears, nose, upper neck, teeth, mouth and jaws. Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee* in March lawyers have dealt with many claims for compensation that have been the result of a mixture of the aforementioned.
A head injury – claim no win no fee* in March compensation
Sufferers of head injuries have been known to find that their ability to carry out their job of work has been greatly impaired. In some instances a return to work too soon (if an employer has requested it) has meant that the injury has not had the requisite amount of time to heal. In other instances the victim may find that they cannot concentrate on their job in the way they used to. And whilst every effort has been made to ensure the head injury has healed the after effects can be felt for years or indeed a lifetime.
