Minor Head Injuries

The vast majority of child head injuries are minor.  A head injury has been defined as any trauma that leads to injury of the scalp or skull.

Many knocks and bumps causing a child’s head injury are minor due to the skull as it provides the child’s brain with protection. The pain and suffering following a minor child head injury usually disappear on their own.  If the child does not lose consciousness and there is no deep cut or wound, it is unusual for there to be any child brain injury. The most common caused for head injury are falls, car accidents and being hit by objects.

However as child head injury solicitor we appreciate that even minor head injuries can be traumatic. If the child’s head injury was caused by a road traffic accident, a slip, trip or fall caused by the fault of another person, the local council or school please call us for FREE NO WIN NO FEE ADVICE.
