Emotional problems caused by a head injury
Accidents that result in head injuries don’t just leave the victim with scars or wounds that take a long time to heal. They can also leave the sufferer with deep rooted emotional and psychological problems that can take years to rectify or may never be cured. This is something that we at Accident Advice Helpline along with our ‘no win, no fee’ Margate solicitors have a wealth of knowledge and experience dealing with. Head injuries are often the reason behind why accident sufferers find that their personalities change or their ability to deal with those around them becomes harder. Sadly, this is not the stuff of fiction but proven medial fact. The brain after all is the core of a human being’s personality and serious head injuries can affect it greatly. We know only too well the issues that head injuries can cause when it comes to the emotional and psychological well being of an accident victim. At Accident Advice Helpline, along with our ‘no win, no fee’ Margate solicitors we know too that a serious head injury isn’t something that is confined to a severe accident such as a car accident. Head injuries can be sustained as a result of:
- Slipping on wet surfaces
- Broken or damaged walking surfaces
- Poorly laid and maintained pavements
- Falling masonry
- Incorrectly stacked materials in the workplace
- Inadequate training in the workplace
I didn’t think the accident was that bad – can I make a ‘no win, no fee’ Margate claim?
There is a common misconception that a head injury has to be sustained as the result of a fall from a great height in order for what is known as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) to occur. This is simply not the case. You are as likely to suffer Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) falling a few feet as you are if you fell hundreds of feet. At Accident Advice Helpline, our ‘no win, no fee’ Margate solicitors, have dealt with cases of just such a nature. Suffers of head injuries report difficulty concentrating, dealing with crowds, adjusting to changes at home or at work, suffering from panic attacks or anxiety, and making emotional attachments. This is extremely difficult to contend with if you have never suffered from any such issues in your life before.
