You may be in need of an occupational therapist accident claim if you are unlucky enough to fall victim to an accident while working as an occupational therapist. As every occupational therapist knows, injuries are always a possibility when it comes to physical work, particularly contact work involving physically or mentally impaired clients.
This profession involves lots of movement and very often a degree of physical contact between expert and client, because physical rehabilitation is a common goal. As such, it is vital that physical therapy equipment, tools, resources and uniforms are appropriate for each individual situation. You cannot claim compensation for an accident that is the result of personal negligence, such as a failure to adhere to clear safety guidelines and proper practices.
You may be able to claim for an injury resulting from the negligence of a third party. This can include injuries caused by broken or damaged equipment, unsuitable work environments, unclear safety instructions and illegal or overly risky behaviour from clients. Whether you work with risk or not, you deserve to go to work and come home unscathed.
Why should I make an occupational therapist accident claim?
We understand that injuries sustained at work can be tough to recover from, particularly if they force you to take time off and even lose wages. It can be even trickier to come to terms with costly medical bills, particularly if you are certain that the accident could have been avoided.
There is no legitimate reason why you should you lose out on earnings if you were injured after an accident which was not your fault or an accident which could have been avoided. Therefore, we will take loss of earnings, material damage and medical bills into account when processing your occupational therapist accident claim.
How do I make a claim?
The consultation process is brief. Six short questions are used to evaluate its eligibility, after which you will receive a recommendation. If we decide that your case is viable, details of the accident, injuries and causes will be recorded.
