If you have decided to make a compensation claim following a personal injury then you may be wondering where to…
Impairment and loss of taste and smell can occur due to brain injuries, infections and nerve damage, and can lead to a dramatic reduction in people’s quality of life. People often take their senses of taste and smell for granted, but when they are impaired or lost, research shows that depression and other psychological effects can actually be more severe and long-lasting among these people than among those who lose their sense of vision.
Not only can losing the sense of smell and taste make food considerably less pleasant, but these senses are also important parts of a human’s memory processes. Smells such as flowers, household features, friends and relatives are comforting and losing the ability to smell these things can cause people to feel like they are missing out on something fundamental.
Loss of smell and taste can also lead to additional health problems. Sufferers may not be able to smell gas leaks, or taste rotten food, and can suffer other health problems as a result of this. The condition can also be an indicator of other health problems, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis.
Therefore, personal injury compensation claims for loss or impairment of taste and vision are a lot larger than people frequently realise. If your sense of taste or smell has been weakened or lost due to someone else’s negligence, then you deserve compensation for your pain and suffering.
