    Did negligence cause a head injury at work?


    Negligence is a word most people who have made compensation claims will be familiar with. Perhaps this is something you’re now thinking about as well. Maybe you had an accident while doing your job recently, and you’ve had a head injury at work because of it.

    Head injuries can trigger all kinds of symptoms and after-effects. Some people recover fully in a matter of days, but others can exhibit symptoms related to their injury for many weeks or months. The more serious the injury was, the greater the chances the person will not make a full recovery, even though they may eventually recover quite well.

    What may happen to cause a head injury at work?

    No doubt you are familiar with health and safety and how it applies in the workplace. Your employer has a duty to assess each task, job and location for risk factors. Any risks that are identified can then be dealt with so they no longer pose any danger.

    The most obvious example of this would be to provide hard hats to those working on a building site. These can prevent head injuries happening if something were to fall on someone. By limiting the risks, it is less likely anyone will receive a head injury at work. In other situations, steps can be taken to ensure accidents cannot happen in other ways that might lead to head injuries or other injuries.

    If you did suffer a head injury at work within the last three years, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Even if you have since made a full recovery and you feel your injury was a minor one, you could still claim if you can prove another individual was negligent.
