What is a Brain Contusion Claim?
Brain injuries are extremely sensitive issues, as in many situations the person has suffered secondary injuries because of the brain injury. These injuries can be in the form of the loss of vision, hearing, short-term or long-term memory, motor functions, speech, etc. In some cases, the injuries caused on the brain can result in death. In all situations, the brain contusion injury is life changing. If you or a loved one believe they have been a victim of negligence which has resulted in a Brain Contusion, here is what you need to know.

If you have been in surgery, have had an automotive accident, or any other impact on the brain, there may be some brain contusion. Symptoms of a brain contusion include:
- Migraines and headaches which go beyond the norm, or a sudden frequency of headaches.
- Clumsiness and Dizziness
- Memory loss
- Restricting or inability to perform certain motor functions
- Speech, vision, or hearing impairment
- Mood swings, inability to manage emotions
- A decline in concentration skills
- Sharp pains in the muscles
- Muscle spasms
Keep in consideration that the brain is the most complex muscle in the body. There are various sectors to the brain and functionality that has not even been fully analysed by scientists. That being stated, any abnormal behaviour, pain, or impairment which may surface from an injury could be the result of a brain contusion. Individuals are strongly encouraged to seek medical attention.
Those who believe that they have been misdiagnosed should seek the opinion of a secondary licensed doctor, nurse, or medical practitioner. Always follow the treatment and advice from these professionals as your health is the most important thing. Never attempt to prolong or increase your injuries for compensation as this is both illegal as well as extremely dangerous.
Contusions are caused then the brain has been traumatised. Here are a few situations which could cause a brain contusion.
If you have been in a car accident, then there is the risk of bruising on the brain, especially if the head hit the steering wheel, the dash, or any other hard surface of the vehicle. Those which have loved ones who have passed as a result of a vehicle accident which caused a brain injury may have grounds for a claim, especially if the accident was the fault of another.
Those which have had a substantial impact to the head as a result of safety negligence at a worksite, such as a construction site where the head gear was non-sufficient to prevent injury, may have grounds for a claim.
Persons who have undergone surgery and a gross negligence can be shown definitively have grounds for a claim. Doctors, nurses, or medical professionals who did not advise the patient to the risks involved in the surgery are more apt to receive compensation. However, if you have any questions, you should seek the advice of a compensation claims expert.
Anyone who has had a loved one die from the negligence of a medical professional to diagnose and treat a brain contusion definitively has grounds for a claim, specifically, if there were adequate symptoms where another medical professional would be able to diagnose the individual of a brain contusion.
When filing a brain contusion claim, you should keep all the supporting documents that you can. Medical records, expenses, and any loss wages should be noted. Any police reports and witness reports should be provided as well. Other documentation may be required when filing your claim. It is important to research what documents should be provided so that you have the best chances to get the compensation that you deserve.
If you have suffered from a brain contusion or if you are the legal guardian or loved one of someone who has suffered from a brain contusion and wish to file a compensation claim, please contact a compensation expert. Compensation claims are time sensitive and based upon a number of factors including the duration of the injury, the level of the injury, the probability of the injury, as well as time frame in which the claim was filed.
