An injury to the head can vary greatly in severity from bruising and lacerations to the skin, to concussion, a fractured skull or brain injury.
What may appear to be a fairly minor head injury can still cause headaches, problems with vision and dizziness over a long term. More serious head injuries can result in permanent physical or mental disability and in some cases can prove fatal.
The circumstances under which head injuries can occur are endless. They can happen at work, in the home or on the road.
If you have suffered a head injury as a result of an accident which was not your fault, you may be able to make a head injury compensation claim.
Experience is essential
Choosing the right solicitor to deal with any personal injury claim is very important but, when head injuries or other serious injuries are involved, is essential.
When dealing with complicated or high-value claims, an experienced solicitor can really make a difference to the amount of compensation the victim receives. Robert Sardo has over 20 years’ experience in this field and has Senior Litigator Approved Status with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and is an Approved Member of the Law Society’s Specialist Personal Injury Panel. He is also a member of the United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum.
Compensation claims for serious head injuries can amount to millions of pounds, and only an experienced solicitor will be able to achieve the maximum amount available.
The Law allows a person injured in an accident that was not their fault, to claim compensation for the pain and suffering they experience as a result of an injury and also for other expenses related to the injury.
These expenses may include any necessary alterations to their home and car, other aids and equipment together with day-to-day personal care, rehabilitation, occupational therapy and physiotherapy.
At Thomas Dunton we actively pursue the defendant to fund additional medical treatment to enable you to get back to full health as quickly as possible whilst the full amount of your claim is being negotiated. As a local solicitor we will be familiar with local services such as Osteopathy, Physiotherapy etc.
This is something many other law firms overlook but which is vitally important. Apart from striving for the maximum compensation, we will also be actively pursuing the defendant to fund additional medical treatment to enable you to get back to work and full health as quickly as possible.
