I was constantly kept up to date. I have used other Solicitors in the past but dealing with Goodmans Law was a whole different experience. I could not have asked for anything more.

BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS WEEK
May 9th to 15th 2011 is Brain Injury Awareness Week
Every year around 1 million people attend UK Accident and Emergency departments for treatment of a head injury. Around 85% of these are assessed as “mild” injuries.
Even mild brain injury can have serious and long term consequences. These can include problems with relationships and the normal social and every day activities that most of us take for granted, as well as lasting physical impairment.
The warning symptoms of mild brain injury can be very subtle and are difficult to diagnose. For this reason brain injury is sometimes called “The Hidden Disability”.
It is estimated that up to ¾ of mild brain injuries may be missed, either through patients not seeking medical attention or by medical professionals failing to identify the symptoms.
For those whose injuries are identified and treated, there is small but significant risk of developing complications.
It is vitally important that people are aware of the signs to look out for and always seek medical treatment
Carol Hopwood is a brain injury specialist solicitor at Goodmans Law in Liverpool.
“With local authorities facing cuts it is more important than ever that patients and their families are made aware of the signs of brain injury.
“Early medical intervention can make the vital difference to long term prospects of recovery and quality of life but it is only too easy for the symptoms to be missed, or confused with other conditions such as depression.
“The effects of brain injury are far reaching and long lasting, not only for the patient but for the whole family. Sadly young people are often most at risk so it is vital that parents know the signs to look out for and act quickly if they are concerned.”
Common Causes of Brain Injury
Brain injury is commonly caused by a blow to the head that results in damage to the brain. Those most at risk are young men aged 15 to 29.
The most common causes of brain injury are :-
Road traffic accidents
Accidents at work
Accidents during sports or leisure pursuits
What To Look Out For
Physical problems such as nausea, dizziness, headaches, visual disturbance, sensitivity to light or sound
Behavioural or mood changes including irritability or depression
Difficulties with attention, concentration or memory
