If you or a member of your family has suffered a head injury, you will know of the huge impact it can have on everyday life.
Head injuries are considered to be a very serious, since any injury which can affect the brain could lead to long-term damage and a range of future complications for the victim.
If your injury is someone else’s fault then you could make a Head Injury compensation claim with the help of Vincents Solicitors. Call us today on 0800 310 2222 and speak to one of our Personal Injury Solicitors about your potential Personal Injury Claim.
Head injuries can occur for a number of reasons and vary in severity from slight concussion to brain damage or death.
Road traffic accidents, slips and trips, medical negligence and physical assault are the most common causes of head injuries and usually mean that someone else is to blame. This is when you can make a Head Injury claim against the party responsible, in order to receive compensation for your pain and suffering.
Approximately 1 million people suffer a head injury each year in the UK, half of whom are under the age of 16. Of the 500,000 adults admitted to hospital each year with head injuries, 85% of those who suffered a severe head trauma and 63% of those who suffered only a moderate head injury remain disabled.
How to make a Head Injury claim
Claiming compensation for a head injury can't cure the damage but it may help relieve some of the financial pressure by covering medical costs, or lost wages resulting from being forced to take time off work to recover.
Like many other personal injury claims, we require detailed evidence about how your injury occurred in order to prove the negligence of someone else. To obtain this it could involve speaking with the police or other authorities and witnesses of the accident, ranging to visiting the scene of the incident, depending on what happened.
