Beardsellspersonalinjury.co.uk publishes statistics which should have everyone concerned about the risk of head injury and the long term effects of injuries of this type
Stockport, Cheshire -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2014 -- Headway, the brain injury association, reports 213,742 admissions to hospitals were the direct result of head injuries between 2011 and 2012. Non-superficial head injuries accounted for 169,673 of these admissions, with 10,000 to 20,000 of these injuries classified as severe traumatic injuries. Statistics show men are two times more likely to suffer a traumatic brain injury, with 15 to 24 year old males and those over 80 years of age most susceptible to a traumatic brain injury. If one suffers a head injury through no fault of their own, legal representation needs to be sought immediately.
"Head injuries present in many ways, yet the severity of one's injury at the time of diagnosis doesn't reliably indicate the risk of long-term symptoms. Symptoms range from changes in behavior and personality, such as anxiety and loss of motivation, to cognitive changes, including loss of insight and initiative and low tolerance for noisy environments. In addition, many patients exhibit physical symptoms, like loss of coordination and epilepsy. In cases such as this, head injury compensation is needed," Wai Yi Suen, spokesperson for Beardsells Personal Injury Solicitors, declares.
Many head injuries occur when the patient is riding a bicycle. The United Kingdom reports an 11 percent increase in the number of deaths and serious injuries sustained by cyclists in the past three years, with 12 to 15 year olds being most at risk. In fact, 22 percent of cyclist casualties in the country involve children under the age of 16, as reported by the Department of Transport.
"The effects on one's family can be devastating. Families report slowness, irritability, fatigue, tension and anxiety, threats of violence, rapid mood changes, depression, poor memory, and personality changes are the top ten difficult problems experienced when dealing with a family member with a traumatic brain injury. Compensation is needed to help care for the patient and to ensure he or she gets the necessary treatment, in all areas of life," Wai Yi Suen continues.
