Head injuries, at their worst, can be utterly life-changing and can have a catastrophic effect on an individual’s life, potentially changing it forever. We therefore strive to achieve a fair and reasonable redress that will allow our clients rebuild their lives.
What to Do When Making a Claim for a Head Injury.
The first step in making a claim would be to contact Accident Claims Reading and let us know the full circumstances of how and where the head injury occurred and how severe your injuries are.
Your claim will then be assessed on its merits by one of our solicitors using the details you have provided us who will advise you on the prospects of success of your claim as well as provide you with a rough estimate of the damages you might receive.
Having helped many people with serious injuries, our solicitors are aware of the physical, psychological, and emotional impact a head injury can have on the lives of those affected and their loved ones. We also know every person claiming for a head injury has individual sensitivities and specific needs that need to be borne firmly in mind.
We will review your case at no cost to you, and provide you from the outset with a full and honest assessment of your head injuries claim. You will be kept informed from day one by our experienced team of solicitors.
Types of Head Injury
Head injuries are any trauma which leads to an injury of the scalp, skull or brain. Visible wounds are one indication of head injury, but their absence does not mean there is no injury and any forceful impact to the head should be investigated thoroughly. Any head injury should be carefully monitored as symptoms can develop hours after the initial injury. There are three main types of head injury:
- Concussion – the single most minor and common head injury. It is of the utmost importance symptoms of a concussion are closely monitored as any deterioration in condition can signify compression on the brain and lead to a more severe brain injury.
- Open – normally occurring after pressure or force is applied to the head strong enough to result in fracture or displacement of the skull.
- Closed – an injury to the head in which the skull does not fracture.
Interim Payments – Head Injury Compensation
Interim Payments are paid out when insurers agree to give you part of your compensation settlement before a final judgement has been reached. Interim Payments can only be made when the other side has admitted liability, but can be incredibly useful in, for example, paying for rehabilitation support and equipment, paying for private medical treatments, paying for adjustments to be made to accommodation, etc.
