Head injuries range from a minor bump on the skull to traumatic brain damage. Between these two extremes, there are many different types of head injuries which can be caused by being involved in a road traffic accident, an incident at work or just slipping and banging your head on a hard surface as you fall. Because of the wide range of damage which is possible and the potential for lifelong health issues, specialist head injury solicitors exist to assist victims who have sustained a head injury in an accident for which they were not to blame.
Even minor bumps on the skull can lead to serious head injury when the brain has been ricocheted around the skull. You should ensure that whenever you have been involved in an accident in which you have hurt your head, you undergo a thorough medical examination from a specialist doctor. When that accident has been due to the negligence or lack of care of another, you should speak with a specialist head injury solicitor about making a claim for head injury compensation.
Making a Head Injury Compensation Claim
The majority of head injury claims for compensation are made to the Injuries Board Ireland – head injury claims involving medical negligence being the exception. The major benefit of using head injury solicitors to assist you with the completion and submission of the application form is that head injury solicitors will be knowledgeable about the special damages you are able to claim to help pay for any ongoing medical treatment and occupational therapy.
Inasmuch as the Injuries Board Ireland will assess your head injury compensation claim on the basis of what is published in the Book of Quantum, you could be seriously undercompensated if your claim fails to integrate out of pocket expenses and potential loss of earnings. Furthermore, should these expenses be disputed by the negligent party or their insurance company, head injury solicitors will have up to date information relating to the costs involved in aftercare of a head injury victim.
