Head Injury Compensation Claims
Head injuries can be the result of a variety of different types of accident, including car accidents or sporting injuries, and can vary a great deal in severity. All head injuries should be assessed by a medical professional to establish whether or not there is significant damage, or whether there is a likelihood of long-term consequences.
If you, or someone you are close to, has suffered a head injury, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Negative outcomes as a result of head injury may not be immediately obvious but any symptoms of suspected concussion should be immediately investigated by a doctor.
What Sort of Problems are Linked to Head Injuries?
Head injuries can be associated with many short and long term problems, including:
• Spinal injuries
• Bleeding in the brain
• Problems with speech
• Coma (temporary or long-term)
How Can I Make a Head Injury Compensation Claim?
Visiting a solicitor who specialises in this type of claim is the first step in making a compensation claim for a head injury*. If you want to get more information on whether you or a friend/relative who has been affected or incapacitated to any degree as a result of a head injury, you should discuss this with a specialist solicitor such as S.T. O’Sullivan & Co Solicitors in the first instance.
*In contentious business, a solicitor may not calculate fees or other charges as a percentage or a proportion of any award or settlement.
