Brain Injury Solicitors
Every year in the UK there are over a million attendances at A&E as a result of TBI usually due to physical trauma to the head which results in hundreds of claims being issued by brain injury solicitors. A "closed injury" occurs when there is trauma to the head without penetration resulting in the brain twisting and turning on its axis or banging against the skull causing localized or widespread damage. The absence of loss of consciousness does not mean that an injured person has not suffered permanent damage and permanent injury can occur without direct physical contact with an object. An “open injury” occurs where there is penetration of the skull by an object however patients often make virtually a full recovery even though the initial visual impact of such physical damage can be severe.
The definition of what is a permanent damage may be disputed within the medical profession however there is general acceptance that it is present if any of the following four conditions occur as a result of trauma or accident:
• loss of consciousness
• focal neurological deficit
• alteration in mental state at the time of the accident (e.g., feeling dazed, disoriented, or confused)
• loss of memory for events immediately before or after the accident
