Head and Brain Injury Compensation Claims
Head and brain injuries are two of the most serious, yet fairly common injuries that take place. They include injury to the scalp, skull or brain.
Head and brain injuries usually occur due to the negligence of another, often from incidents which can include:
All head injuries are placed in to one of two categories:
– Open Head Injuries, or
– Closed Head Injuries
An open head injury is when the skull is fractured or displaced. This happens when an object which has used force or pressure has hit the head, resulting in damage to the brain tissue. Such injuries are not limited to just a blow on the head but can also include weapons. Though, an injury under this category may not always result in a head injury claim.
A closed head injury is where the skull has undergone trauma but has not necessarily been fractured. This is the more common of the two types of head injuries and there may not always be a visible wound. Such injuries can lead to bleeding in and around the brain, as well as concussion.
Depending on the severity of the injury, the injuries can vary from a minor concussion which may only last for a few hours, to long term brain damage which can have a life changing impact.
No matter how big or small your injury is, it can cause a strain on you and your family which can be eased with the aid of compensation.
