More than 200,000 people are admitted to the UK's hospitals every year suffering from head injuries. Around 80% of those injuries are serious.
In the last 10 years, there has been a 33% increase in hospital admissions for head injuries with as many as 20,000 people suffering traumatic brain injuries every year.
Many head injuries are the result of road traffic accidents, slips and trips or accidents at work and they can have a devastating impact on people's lives. They can cause:
- Memory loss
- Attention and concentration difficulties
- Loss of coordination
- Muscle rigidity
If you're suffering from an injury, you may have a claim
Head injuries affect both the person who is injured and their family. They can lead to time in hospital and long periods of recovery and rehabilitation. In some cases, head injuries can even mean you missing work for months or even years. In short, they can be life changing.
When a head injury is the result of an accident that wasn't your fault, you may be entitled to a claim for compensation. Watermans' Total Care can ensure you get everything you and your family need at every stage of your recovery.
