Who is most at risk of a traumatic brain injury?
There are 10,000.00 to 20,000.00 hospital visits for head injury per year.
Anyone, at any time of their life can be a victim of a traumatic brain injury.
However, statistics show that the most vulnerable sections of society are males aged 15 to 24 and people over the age of 80.
The main causes of brain injuries are:-
- Alcohol related injuries
- Road traffic accident
- Sporting accidents involving trauma
A head injury or indeed a traumatic brain injury from any of these causes can lead to a potential claim for compensation and here at Thackray Williams we would recommend that you speak to a solicitor as soon as possible if you have suffered a such an injury.
Head injuries claims are more complex and normal personal injury claims and we can take the stress of the claim and help to arrange the treatment required to recuperate.
