Most personal injury claims stem from accidents that occur when working in high-risk professions, and a helicopter mechanic accident claim features among these. Given the amount of high-spec mechanical and electrical equipment used in this job, the weight of heavy machinery with moving parts, the well trafficked open work area, and the proximity of extremely flammable fuel there is plenty of scope for accidents to happen. If you have been injured at work in the last three years and the injury was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
What compensation can I claim?
Compensation is designed to reimburse you for costs resulting from an accident caused by the actions or negligence of someone who owes you a duty of care. This could be a colleague operating machinery in the same work area or an employer who is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the workshop and equipment you use. While compensation cannot diminish your pain and suffering it does mean that you do not have to face financial hardship on top of this. If your accident has had detrimental effects on your quality of life or you have lost earnings through being unable to work, a sum may also be awarded as recompense for this.
