Head Injury Claims
Head injuries can be some of the most severe type of injury that it is possible to suffer. The term can cover a wide range of different injuries, from relatively minor or short-lived effects, to serious, life-changing injuries which impair brain and sensory function. Even what may appear to be a mild brain injury can have some unpleasant side-effects. Frequently doctors and lawyers miss subtle brain injuries, meaning that the injured person doesn’t get the care that they need and that a compensation claim is potentially under-settled.
Preparing Your Case With A Claims Solicitor
If someone believes that there is a potential brain injury claim that should be raised, as with all kinds of personal injury claim, the details are incredibly important. It is always advisable to work in partnership with an experienced claims solicitor who is very familiar with handling brain injury claims, as they are very complex.
Before the solicitor will be able to advise on the merit of a claim, and be able to bring it to the attention of a court it might be helpful to have the following pieces of information;
- What was the accident?
- When did it happen?
- What were the physical injuries?
- What was the mental injury?
- When did the mental injury become apparent?
- Who identified the mental injury?
Medical records are always incredibly important in claims regarding an alleged brain injury. Furthermore, individuals should try and note down as much as they can about an accident as and when they can. It is also advisable that individuals avoid adding embellishment to the facts of any situation, as this will likely confuse matters and make it more difficult to pursue a claim quickly.
An important point to note in terms of the compensation that might be available in a brain injury claim is that sometimes, solicitors may be able to arrange for some of the compensation to be issued before the claim is settled – provided liability is accepted. This can be helpful in alleviating some of the financial strain that brain injury has on individuals but will depend on the individual circumstances of a case.
