Types of Head Injuries
There are different types of head injuries that our team of lawyers specialise in. Using their vast amount of experience, our team will be able to advise you on the best way to take your case forward. We specialise in;
Closed Head Injuries
These occur when there is no open wound, but the head has been hit with an object, potentially leaving bruising or internal bleeding. This sort of injury is one of the most common, and can occur through playing sports or banging your head. Closed head traumas can cause swelling or fluid retention inside the head and even lead to brain damage.
According to the Brain Injury Resource Foundation, approximately 125,000 people suffer from a brain injury which requires hospital admission in the UK every year. A brain trauma is an injury causing lasting damage to the mental state of the victim.
Penetrative Head Injuries
These are injuries where there is a clear mark or visible injury on the head. This can be caused by hitting your head off of something sharp, such as a knife or even a bullet.
Crushed Head Injury
Despite this type of injury being the least common, it most commonly occurs in industrial accidents or workplaces or in road traffic accidents. This type of accident involves the head being caught in between two hard objects.
Before Making a Head Injury Claim in London
Before making any form of compensation claim we encourage anyone who has had a head injury to seek a medical examination. Not only does this allow you to have any potential injuries treated, but can back up any compensation claim you may wish to make.
You could be suffering from a head injury if you are suffering from nausea, headaches, double vision, dizziness, memory problems, extreme fatigue or anxiety and depression. If you have any of these symptoms following a head trauma, please contact a medical expert as soon as possible before seeking legal advice.
We know that receiving a head injury can lead to complications, with some people being unable to work for a substantial amount of time, if ever, leading to personal and financial issues. If we believe you are entitled to compensation, we will strive to get damages pushed forward in order to aid you financially throughout your compensation claim.
Claiming for Head Injury Compensation London
The average amount of compensation awarded for a head injury is significantly higher than any other personal injury claim. Whilst it is difficult to accurately predict exactly how much your claim is worth, our team of solicitors will be able to give you an assessment of the potential value of your claim. The damages awarded will take factors such as the costs of rehabilitation, disability aids, home care, specialist equipment or the cost of having a house modified, into account.
The complexity of a head injury means that making a claim can be a very difficult task, especially if the client is going through rehabilitation and adapting to their injury. Our team of solicitors look to take the stress off our clients in order to aid our client in obtaining compensation.
