Head Injury and Alcohol: Stay Safe

Christmas Season

Most of us have probably already started preparing for the Christmas holiday.  Writing our cards, putting up decorations, thinking about which presents to buy and the food we will need to get in, as we look forward to spending time with our friends and family.  And part of this Christmas season for many includes enjoying a seasonal drink at home or on a night out.

Drink-Driving causes Head Injury

Police “Don’t Drink and Drive” campaigns are an established part of the calendar and though drivers are aware of the dangers of drinking and driving at any time of the year, the campaigns are a timely reminder that drinking alcohol and driving causes road accidents, which in turn are a leading cause of head and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Did you know alcohol is a major factor in all Head Injury?

The danger of alcohol however is not just limited to increasing the number of road accidents.  It is also a well known factor in all head injury patients, particularly for men, no matter how the injury was caused.  Studies have shown alcohol levels are significantly higher in patients who fall “under the influence” or are assault victims, even than in those who have been drinking and involved in traffic accidents.

What our clients say

We know that we have been extremely fortunate to have had such a consummate PI lawyer in Andy acting on our behalf but we have also been blessed by having had his support, trust, friendship and loyalty throughout. We cannot ever thank him enough.

The compensation Nicola has received has helped her move from a tiny council flat into a massive bungalow which has been specifically adapted. It has enabled her to have a better life.

If it was not for the help of my solicitor I don't know where I would have been today. He provided a great deal of emotional support and secured compensation at various stages from the insurance company to fund my treatment and allow me to live. He was there from start to finish.

Higgs & Sons acted for us for 5 years until our daughters claim for personal injuries was finally settled. Ian remains a trustee of our daughters trust fund and we now look upon him as a friend.
