Head and Brain Injuries

Head and Brain Injuries

Head and brain injuries count for being one of the most serious kind of injuries which could take away a person’s life or change some one’s life for forever. Also, such injuries are more serious because it does not only affect the individual who had been injured but also other people who are closely related to that person.

Head injuries could bring serious complications to a person who has been injured badly. Such injuries could be caused in a number of different ways such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Road rage accidents
  • Truck and trolley accidents
  • Trip and collapse
  • Slip and collapse
  • Assault and run
  • Accidents at the workplace
  • Accidents in the public places
  • Injuries caused due to clinical negligence

Injuries resulting from the above mentioned factors could greatly vary in their intensity leading to complications such as:

  • Cognitive difficulties
  • Loss of memory
  • Poor concentration
  • Permanent damage to the brain
  • Physical disability
  • Hearing problems
  • Focal Neurological Deficit
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Variation in the state of mind on the instant of the accident such as conditions of nausea, headache, dizziness, confusion and disorientation
  • Visual problems
  • Slowed responses
  • Fatigue and poor problem solving
  • Chronic pain
  • Paralysis
  • Lack of imminent
  • Irritability, inflexibility, impulsivity
  • Inappropriate social behavior
  • Emotional ordeal or depression

Head injuries could be really serious if there occurs excessive bleeding, swelling of the brain, or tearing apart of tissues at the same time. All of these serious implications of an injury could take place at the moment when the person’s brain glides inside the skull. Even if the injury seems to be minor at the time of the accident, one should have a proper first-aid treatment and an adequate check up of the brain so as to ensure that there is nothing likely to become serious in the future. If the injured person does not shows any signs of breathing, coughing or movement then immediately the patient should be given CPR treatment.

If you, any of your relatives, or members of the family have suffered head and brain injuries due to an accident which had not occurred due to your own fault but has been caused by the negligence or fault of a third party then you must file a legal claim on that third party. Every person under the law, who has been a victim of injury caused by a third person has a civil as well as legal right to put forward a claim on that and seek compensation from the third party.

Whether you were injured on the road, at work, in a public place or elswhere you are likely to have a claim to pursue provided it can be proved that the accident was the result of someone else's negligence.
