Brain injuries can have a lasting effect on your life, if you are involved in a serious accident and suffer a head injury, it is highly likely that you may suffer some sort of brain injury.
Brain injuries can occur in many ways from road traffic accidents, slips trips and falls and even accidents in the workplace. Thankfully, the law is there to help, and if you are injured through no fault of your own and suffer a brain injury, you can take legal action to obtain the compensation you deserve.
Making a Personal Injury Claim Following a Brain Injury
If you suffer a serious head injury, it is vital that you seek medical advice from a trained professional. Head injuries can have the most serious impact on livelihoods, and if there is damage to the head or the brain, it is important that it is assessed as soon as possible.
This will allow a skilled professional to monitor your injuries and give you the best chance of a full rehabilitation. At The Accident Claims Web we have a large roster of professional and expert solicitors ready to help you and your family. For more information on how to make an accident claim call us now.
When you seek medical advice, you will also obtain a medical report which can prove to be exceptionally useful when making a personal injury claim. Such a document can be used to show the full extent of your injuries, the damage caused by your accident and essentially verify your claim. It will also show the expected recovery time and the impact the injury had. As well as this, it is difficult for those wishing to deny you compensation to go against the word of a trained medical professional.
When making a personal injury claim, as well as a medical report, it is important to have as much evidence as possible to support your personal injury claim. Brain injuries can be somewhat complex. Therefore, it is ideal to have as much evidence as possible. Your solicitor will require evidence such as where, when and how the incident occurred as well as evidence of the extent of your injuries. Photographic evidence, a copy of a police report, an accident in the workplace book or even CCTV footage could be used as evidence to support your claim for compensation.
When making a claim following a brain injury, it is vital that your injury was caused by someone else and was not self-inflicted. If your injury was a result of the negligence or carelessness of someone else, then you will be able to make a claim, however, if you were responsible for your own injuries, then you will not be able to make a claim.
Do I need a Personal Injury Lawyer?
While most injuries can be somewhat complex and confusing, especially when trying to claim compensation, due to the serious nature of brain injuries, the claim can take significantly longer than other types of claims to resolve. This is due to the severe impact that a brain injury can have, and the fact that the settlement reached is often significantly more than any other type of injury.
Brain injury claims can often have lengthy settlements, however, following such an injury many people are unable to work and encounter financial difficulties. At the Accident Claims Web, their solicitors will do their utmost to get you interim payments. These payments will come before your claim is finalised but can provide some cash settlement to help you with any financial difficulties you may be having.
What can I Claim For?
If you suffer from a brain injury, you can claim for the injuries sustained, and the damage caused as a result of the accident. You can also make a claim for psychological damage, memory loss and any other damage as a result of the injury. When making a personal injury claim, if you have been unable to work due to your accident, you can claim for loss of earnings. To do this, you will need to provide proof of loss of earnings such as a bank balance. It is also possible to claim for any damage to property so that you can have said property fixed or replaced.
