Helping you to get compensation following a serious injury to your brain
Brain injuries, even minor ones, have the potential to change your life forever. They can cause a huge range of complications, from cognitive and behavioural problems to more severe physical disabilities such as co-ordination difficulties, speech impediments and in extreme cases lead to permanent severe disability.
Even a seemingly innocuous bump on the head following a slip, trip or fall can lead to difficulties that you and your family may have to deal with for the rest of your life.
An injury to your brain may not become immediately apparent immediately after an accident. They are often ‘secondary’ injuries that may be missed initially as medical staff deal with with other, more obvious injuries. However, if brain injuries are not treated promptly, the consequences can be disastrous. The long-term effects on your brain of a car crash, for instance, may not become apparent until days or weeks after the accident occurs.
Not all brain injuries are severe or permanent, but they can still impact on your life and require significant rehabilitation periods and lengthy (and expensive) treatment. They can affect anyone regardless of your age or health, and so even a completely healthy individual can all of a sudden be left with long-term injuries to deal with.
Thankfully, you don’t have to face this alone. At Injury Lawyers 4U, we are here to help accident victims get the assistance that they need, and the compensation that they deserve.
Common causes of brain injuries
Most brain injuries occur as a result of direct or indirect trauma to the head. This can result from road accidents, heavy falls, violence or impacts sustained from sports and recreational activities, including those suffered by cyclists.
Even though the risk of such injuries is often small, it is still present whether you’re driving to work or playing football in the park.
Am I able to make a claim for compensation for a brain injury?
An injury to your brain will obviously bring with it physical effects, as well as the pain and suffering following the initial accident. In addition to this, you could be forced to take time off work which often has the knock-on effect of lowering your earning potential. You might also be required to pay expensive medical bills, as well as in some cases, having to pay for modifications to your home. This can all compound the stress arising from the accident itself.
If the injury occurred as a result of someone else’s negligence, you can make a claim for compensation. In such cases, Injury Lawyers 4U are here to help. We can’t reverse the damage and impact on your life, but by fighting for the compensation that you deserve we can help to at least mitigate the effects that it can have on your life and the lives of those around you.
As well as the physical effects, brain injuries can force you to take time off work and lower your future earning potential, which can compound the stress arising from the accident itself.
