Head injuries can range from minor concussion to serious head injuries such as a fractured skull or brain injury – whilst they are less common than some other, less serious injuries, workplace head injuries can and do still happen.
If you or somebody you care about has suffered a head injury at work, chances are you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation, if somebody else is at fault.
With 15 years’ specialist experience, Accident Advice Helpline will be able to tell you who is at fault for your accident – and as a result who is liable. If you’re eligible to make a claim, our personal injury lawyers will do their best to get you the compensation you deserve.
What caused your accident?
There are all kind of different accidents which could result in workplace head injuries but most have one thing in common – they could have been avoided. Here are a few examples of the types of accident which we have handled claims for over the years:
- Fall from height from scaffolding leading to brain injury
- Slip on a wet floor (hitting head on the way down) in a shop
- Struck on the head by objects falling from height on a building site
- Injured by flying debris from faulty factory machinery
- Falling downstairs in an office
Your employer needs to take steps to ensure your safety at work and if you have been involved in an accident which has resulted in a head injury, the consequences could be serious. A brain injury can affect your behaviour and mood, so you may be unable to go back to work or even look after yourself – this obviously impacts the whole family emotionally and financially.
If you’re caring for a family member who has suffered a brain injury or other serious head injury at their place of employment, we can help you get the compensation they deserve. Our team of expert personal injury advisors offer confidential, no-obligation advice and we’re here to answer any questions you have on the claims process.
Will your claim be successful?
We can’t say with 100% certainty that any claim for personal injury compensation will be successful, but if we think there’s a good chance of success, our lawyer will work with you on a 100% no win, no fee basis to get you your compensation.
