Head Injury

Having an accident is upsetting but if you or someone you love has suffered from a head injury as a result of the accident. Of course this will be devastating. Head injuries vary in severity and it can take some time before the extent of the injury is known. Was someone else was responsible for the accident in which you suffered your injuries. You may be able to claim compensation. Deciding whether you want to make a claim can be difficult. However head injuries are often serious and can mean that you life changes significantly following your accident. Consequently it could mean that you find yourself unable to work. In these circumstances, making a claim for compensation will help you to move forwards. At least with some financial security.

What Is Head Injury?

Head injuries happen when you receive a blow to the head and as a result your brain is injured. Medical staff will assess anyone with a head injury using the Glasgow Coma Scale, more commonly know as a GCS. This scale helps them to identify how serious your head injury actually is, with 3 being the most serious and 15 being the least. The biggest issue with a head injury is permanent damage to the brain and immediate medical treatment allows you the best chance of avoiding this. However the more severe your injury, the more likely you are to suffer from a permanent brain injury.If you or a relative have suffered from this type of injury then please contact our Personal Injury Solicitors today.

There is the added complication of pressure on your brain following a head injury. Consequently this  can be a build up of blood or fluid or blood clots which can also cause temporary or permanent brain damage. Once you have recovered from the initial head injury, there may be other symptoms which you will need to come to terms with afterwards. You may have problems communicating, suffer from emotional or behavioural changes. Furthermore even hormonal imbalances and even physical difficulties too.

The impact of a head injury does not just affect the injured person. Often the whole family and this is why it is crucial to understand your position legally. Furthermore if you can claim compensation to help cope with the aftermath of a serious head and brain injury.
