Brain Injury Claims
Injuries to the brain can result in catastrophic consequences depending upon the severity with even a moderate brain injury having significant impact on a victim’s way of life. It is very important that you choose the right Solicitors as an experienced and sympathetic solicitor can ease the burden from you and your family during these difficult times.
Unfortunately head and traumatic brain injuries are common especially in road traffic accidents involving motorcycles, bicycles and accidents at work.
If someone else is to blame for your injury it may be possible to make a compensation claim. Our ethos is to make sure we cover every angle in order to maximise your claim to give you future security.
A traumatic brain injury could be minor which may lead to symptoms no worse than headaches. At the other end of the scale traumatic brain injuries may be severe and without question will be life changing.
Serious Brain Injury
Serious injuries such as these affect more than the victim. They affect family and friends who themselves are struggling to come to terms with the situation.
We are here for them too.
Identifying a traumatic brain injury
Severe traumatic brain injuries may be self-evident as they may be identified on a CT or MRI scan at the hospital and the symptoms may be obvious.
Subtle Brain Injuries
Were you aware that, if you were rendered unconscious and/or suffered some amnesia after the accident and were dazed or confused, then you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury even if you have no other symptoms?
Our Brain Injury Team has dealt with a number of professional negligence cases against client’s former solicitors in which clients have approached us with such problems following a head injury which their past solicitors simply did not investigate.
Symptoms to look for:
If you have suffered a head injury and you have some of the following symptoms then your head injury needs further investigation.
- Unconscious (even momentarily)
Speech or language problems
Vomiting or feeling nauseous
Loss of taste and smell
