Concussion Injury Claims
Far from being a minor injury, a concussion injury can be debilitating and scary and can have long term effects on the victim’s physical and mental health. A concussion is classed as a mild form of traumatic brain injury and happens when an impact, such as from a fall or jolt, shakes the brain around inside the skull and interrupts normal brain function – similar to lights flickering in a storm.
The first 24 hours after an injury are the most critical. You should immediately seek medical advice if you believe you may have a concussion, if there is blood or clear fluid leaking from your nose or ears (which can indicate a fractured skull), or if you experience any of the symptoms listed below.
Effects of concussion can include:
● Loss of consciousness
● Impaired eyesight, including light sensitivity
● A feeling of dizziness or being off-balance
● Mood swings, tiredness, and irritability
● Lack of concentration
These effects may disappear in a few hours, but can continue for days or even weeks, depending on the severity of the concussion and the individual patient. All of them have an impact on a person’s ability to operate in their daily life, to work or study as efficiently as they would have previously, to interact with their family and loved ones, and to do necessary everyday tasks like drive or use public transport with confidence.
What is a Concussion Injury Claim?
Compensation claims for a concussion can be pursued when the cause could have been avoided if the responsible party had taken reasonable care. An example would be a concussion suffered as the passenger or driver in a road traffic accident which was not your fault, or a child getting knocked off their bicycle. Having a shelf at work collapse above your head, or falling on a slippery floor may also cause a concussion, as do sporting injuries. All of these are situations where The Compensation Experts can help clients claim damages.
As the claimant, it is your duty to prove that you were injured and demonstrate your injury was caused by another person’s negligence or error. Your medical records will help, and your personal injury lawyer may also enlist the support of an independent medical expert to strengthen your case. Proving another person’s negligence is not always straightforward and is easier the earlier you seek legal representation.
Calculating Compensation for Concussion
The amount of compensation you receive is related to the severity of your injury and the impact it has had on your life. It will take into account whether you have lost money due to paying for treatment or being unable to work. Even if you were partially responsible for your accident, you could still claim damages which will be adjusted proportionally. If you have a No Win No Fee* agreement then your legal fees will be deducted from the compensation you are awarded.
