Head injuries can be dangerous and permanent. They often require medical attention. Serious head injuries often occur because of road traffic accidents, work accidents, sports accidents, falls and assaults.
Common long-term effects of head injuries include:
Head injuries will not always show symptoms right away. If you’ve hit your head, you may expect to develop a concussion. Yet, head injuries can also be associated with spinal injuries. Sometimes, symptoms such as nausea or vomiting may not be immediately associated with a head injury, but they can be signs of a head injury. You should get medical care right away.
A head injury can cause you to make poor decisions. You may need your family or a friend to help you through the claims process and with other important decisions in your life. If you believe that you’ve received a head injury from a personal injury, contact Tiernan & Co. Solicitors to learn more about filing a claim.
According to the Personal Injuries Board, a minor skull fracture or a brain injury is estimated to be worth around €23,300. Major skull fractures or brain injuries are estimated to be worth around €129,000.
