There are lots of different ways in which you can fracture your skull, some are more serious than others. Below are some of the main kinds of skull fractures experienced in accidents:
In many cases, it is obvious there has been a serious skull fracture, however, sometimes it is less obvious and people may not know if they have had a skull fracture or not. If you have had a blow to the head, for whatever reason, and you are suffering from prolonged confusion; headaches; dilated pupils and limited consciousness, then please seek medical advice straightaway.
There is an inexhaustible list of ways in which you can fracture your skull, below are some of the most common reasons why you may need to start a fractured skull compensation claim:
If your fractured skull happened while you were at work then you could be able to make a work place compensation claim. Employers are duty bound to ensure you are safe while you are at work. This includes the provision of necessary training, Personal Protective clothing and Equipment (PPE) and undertaking the correct risk assessments. If an employer has failed to do one or more of these and it has caused you to suffer a fractured skull injury then you could have a valid compensation claim.
Fractured skull injuries can sometimes arise if there has been a violent assault on an individual. If you have been physically attacked, it is often possible to conduct your claim through the Criminal Injuries Authority. A qualified personal injury lawyer will be able to help and advise you on making a claim through CICA (Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority).
If you are unsure about the amount of compensation you are likely to receive for your claim, then your personal injury lawyer should be able to give you a general indication when they know more about your individual case. Broadly speaking, the more severe the impact your injuries have had an on your ability to enjoy your life as you did and be able to work, the more compensation you are likely to receive. The amount of compensation you will receive is also dependent upon whether or not you have had to pay for any medical expense in relation to your injury.
