A head injury may be defined as some type of physical trauma to or affecting the head. The brain may or may not be injured. The scalp, skull and face may also sustain injuries. Depending on its location and severity, a head injury may result in a loss of consciousness, concussion, coma, brain damage, skull fracture or hematoma. If the injury is severe enough, the victim may be at risk of losing his or her life.
If someone you know falls and hits their head or is struck in the head, there are certain things you should not do. Do not move them unless absolutely necessary. Do not remove the victim’s helmet (if he/she was wearing one), do not shake the person if they seem dazed or confused. Do not remove an object that may be protruding from the wound. Do not clean the wound if it is deep or bleeding excessively. Call 911 if the injury seems serious.
Taking legal action immediately after a serious injury may not be the first thing on your mind. However, you may soon find yourself overwhelmed with medical bills and financial problems caused by lost income from missed work. In dealing with your insurance company or the insurance provider of the party that caused your injuries, you may find that you are offered an unfair settlement or that payment is delayed or even denied. An attorney can act as your advocate, protecting your right to compensation and filing a claim or lawsuit on your behalf in order to seek a fair settlement or award. Recovering maximum financial compensation cannot turn back the clock and prevent your injuries from occurring in the first place, but it can help you begin to rebuild your life and work toward a brighter future.
