Sustaining a head injury at work can not only be extremely painful but can also result in potentially debilitating conditions for many victims.
If you or a loved one has suffered a head injury in the workplace and the accident was not your fault then it is worth considering speaking to a personal injury lawyer about whether or not to make a compensation claim.
Head injuries at work claims can often come about because of falling or slipping accident or falling from height injuries in the workplace.
I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. First Personal Injury dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend First Personal Injury to anyone who wants to make an accident claim.
Some of the ways in which you can be affected by a head injury are below:
Depression and/or anxiety
Inability to walk
Difficulty with speech and communication
Is My Employer Responsible For My Head Injury?
If your employer has not complied with health and safety law and protected you from the risk of a head injury in the workplace then it is likely it had acted negligently. If this can be clearly proven then you could have a potentially successful head injury at work claim.
Amongst other forms of protection, your employer should provide health and safety equipment such as safety headgear. They should also ensure that tripping hazards are minimised and objects are not able to fall onto workers.
