Our experience

Head injuries can include anything from minor injuries like bruising and grazes to the more serious lacerations and concussions, right up to severe injuries such as a fractured skull and brain injuries. Head injuries can cause serious long term issues resulting in a wide range of difficulties for the victim, whether it is loss of sight, fuzziness, consistent headaches or dizziness, post concussion syndrome or even permanent disability, such as epilepsy, or in the worst cases, death.

At Stephensons our solicitors deal with a variety of head injury compensation claims for people who have been injured as a result of a road accident, accident at work, violent attack or a slip, trip or fall or other incident in a public place.

Symptoms of head injuries

If you feel that you have suffered a head injury, it is vital that you seek medical help immediately. Any type of head injury will require immediate assessment due to the significant effects they can have. In addition if you have suffered a head injury through no fault of your own, it is important to obtain any records of your injury from a medical professional as this will help support your claim.

A medical professional is the best person to assess and diagnose a head injury, but due to our extensive work with victims of head injuries, we are well aware of the symptoms associated with head injuries. Some key symptoms are:

  • Vomiting after the injury
  • A headache that will not go away even after taking painkillers
  • Unusual behaviour problems or problem understanding others
  • Slurring of speech
  • Confusion
  • Loss of use of a body part such as an arm or leg
  • Blurry or double vision 
  • Unusual breathing
  • Blood or clear fluid leaking from the ears or nose

Types of head injuries

A head injury is classed as such when there is trauma to the scalp, skull or brain. A head injury may not include any visible wounds, often leading people to believe that they are fine, but even so, all head injuries should be monitored and assessed by a medical professional.

There are three main types of head injury – concussion, an open head injury and a closed head injury.

  • A concussion is the most common type of head injury yet is still extremely dangerous. If a person suffers a concussion they should be monitored closely as any deterioration in a person’s ability to respond could be a sign that they are suffering compression of the brain which could lead to severe brain injury.
  • An open injury is when such force or pressure is applied to the skull that it causes a fracture or displacement of the skull. An open injury is classed as such as the skull is broken or ‘opened’ in some way.
  • A closed injury is classed as such when a head injury does not result in any fracturing or structural damage of the skull.

Claim compensation

We understand that head injuries can place victims and their families under extreme financial stress. Whether this is due to the ongoing treatments required or simply due to the fact the victim may no longer be able to work or care for themselves after an injury. The financial burden can be extremely difficult to deal with. We fight for the maximum amount of compensation to ensure you or your loved ones have the best chance of recovery. 

A compensation claim pays for so much more than any pain and suffering. It can cover any loss of earnings if you are unable to work and can help provide for your family if your injury prevents you from pursuing or continuing employment and if you have ongoing care and specific accommodation requirements.

If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury, contact the expert solicitors at Stephensons on 0203 816 0065 and claim the compensation you deserve.
