Concerns after suffering an accident at work - I am badly hurt
Your health is your wealth. Always go to hospital if you have been injured as a result of an accident at work.
If you have suffered an accident at work your immediate concern will be for your health an wellbeing. The workplace is full of hazards and dangers. Think of the hazards present on a building site. Think of all the types of accident that can happen in a meat factory. Hopefully your injury will not be overly serious and you will make a fast recovery, but sometimes this is not the case.
As specialist accident at work Solicitors we have dealt with some very nasty work accident injuries. Examples of these injuries are:
Loss of finger
Loss of leg
Loss of arm
Fracture to leg
Fracture to arm
Fracture to ankle
Injury to the back including the vertebrae bones
Sometimes an individual will have life changing injuries.
This may sound obvious, but you need to seek urgent medical attention. Your health is your wealth. Call an ambulance and get to hospital or at least your GP.
We can assist clients with taking a claim or personal injury regarding a workplace accident, but this can all wait!
If you suffer a serious injury you are entitled to be compensated if it is proven that your injury was caused by the negligence of a third party. In an accident at work claims this will usually be the employer, but not always (for example there can be many different defendants if there is an accident on a building site, or if a recruitment agency is involved).
In order to determine what personal injury compensation a client is entitled to we must submit the case with the injuries board and sometimes pursue the case through the Courts. We obtain medical reports from the doctors that treated a client, and these reports are what we use to quantify the extent of these injuries and negotiate a settlement with the defendant.
We know how daunting it can be if you suffer personal injury following a workplace accident. We are happy to assist if you require our services.
