Head Injury Claims
It has been said that every year in the UK alone over one million people end up visiting hospital with a head injury and out of this one million about 135,000 will have to be admitted into hospital due to the severity of their injuries. Severe head injuries are also the cause of more than 50% of trauma related deaths.
Trauma to the head is the main cause of head injury and brain damage. Some examples of how this trauma is caused are through accidents such as road traffic accidents, slip, trip or fall accidents, workplace accidents and sports related accidents as well as a violent attack.
Head injuries caused by aspects such as the above can damage the scalp, skull or brain. This can happen regardless of whether the accident was minor, severe or life threatening. Brain damage compensation awards can be quite significant and worth pursuing.
However you sustained your head injury the symptoms that you will more than likely be suffering from are as follows:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurred vision and slurred speech
- Confusion or drowsiness
- Loss of consciousness
- Blood or clear fluid coming from the ears or nose
