Head Injury Compensation

Head Injury Compensation Claims

There are many accident scenarios that can cause a serious head injury to the victim which can alter their day to day lives in a dramatic way. For example a client who received compensation got hit on the head by a metal bar at work.

Another client suffered severe brain injury after a serious collision involving a car in a road traffic accident.

We know that head injuries can be catastrophic to the individual involved so we always hope that when a client approaches us for legal representation, that the injury is not too severe for their aftercare and continued quality of life.

These accidents do however occur, so if you have been involved in a non fault accident that has injured you in the head in some way, do not hesitate to contact us to make your claim for compensation, just like our other clients have.

The biggest organ found in the head is the brain. It is usually injured in some way during a head injury accident. This is referred to as a trauma (from the Greek word “trauma” meaning “wound“) to the brain resulting in traumatic brain injury or a “wound” to the brain.

The most common causes include road traffic accidents (RTAs), assaults, slips, trips and falls and accidents at home or at work.

The range of injury severity to the brain caused by an accident can range widely, from a minor brain injury/concussion to a moderate brain injury to a severe brain injury that can cause paralysis, full/partial loss of motor functioning, coma and other detrimental effects to you.

It is therefore very important to have very good post-brain injury treatment in order to have a better chance of recovery and specialist legal representation if you want to claim compensation.

Whiplash Claims

Another injury that can be sustained from having being involved in an accident resulting in a head injury can be whiplash. Whiplash is a neck injury that can be caused by a sudden blow to the head resulting in a jolting of the neck, such as in a car accident.

The result is that the ligaments and tendons in the neck can be damaged due to the sudden jolt of the head and neck. Symptoms can include:

  • Pain, stiffness and tenderness in the neck muscles
  • Reduced movement and/or slower movement of the neck
  • Headaches

(The NHS has written about whiplash, its causes, symptoms, treatments and such. If you want more information on the topic, click here.)
