Brain and Head Injuries

There are various reasons that may lead to brain and head injury such as road accidents, accident at the workplace that are especially common at building sites, logging and others such sites. At times, even medical negligence can lead to such injuries. These injuries threaten the life of an individual and may also lead to memory loss and other internal or external injuries on brain or skull of an individual. Cognitive difficulties, permanent damage of brain, poor visibility or memory are also some of the effects that a brain or a head injury might have. These injuries not only have an effect on the individual, but it also adversely affects the family members of the victim in all aspects, no matter if it is physically, emotionally or financially.

These head and brain injuries therefore might change the lifestyle of the victim and its family members in many ways. Though the loss incurred by these injuries might be irrevocable, but an additional compensation for the suffering and loss can at least clarify the tension for financial problems that it might have led to. To secure the appropriate amount of compensation according to the kind of injury suffered and the consequences that it has caused, it is best to hire a personal injury lawyer. These lawyers will understand the implications of your case and represent you in your legal battle.

Measures should therefore be taken by the employer to make sure to minimise such accidents and brain and head injuries. For instance, fine-quality helmets can be made available to the workers so as to ensure their protection in case of any mishap. It is also important to have the first-aid always ready at the workplace so as to avoid excessive damages and to attend to the patients immediately. The compensation that is granted for brain and head injuries are obviously higher than those of the other cases of personal injury due to the seriousness that is involved in the former one. Working on elevated floors should also be avoided as much as possible in order to reduce the number of brain and head accidents. An employer can also look forward to providing workers with a training that tells them what precautionary measures they can take so as to avert such traumatic accidents and injuries.

Slip in Public House
Mrs C whilst walking towards the bar area slipped on the wet floor of a public house whilst walking towards the bar area. She fell awkwardly causing a complex fracture of her right wrist. The insurers denied liability alleging the floor was dry and that Mrs C was drunk and jumping on the dancefloor. Cooks obtained evidence refuting this and issued the claim at Court. Settlement was reached just prior to the trial when Mrs C was awarded £20,000.00 she said:
"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
