Accidents in the roofing industry can be distressing, which is why Accident Advice Helpline considers roofing contractor accident counselling to be vital. If you are involved in the roofing industry, you will be well aware that accidents are relatively commonplace and can be extremely traumatic, not only for the victim but also for family and anyone who witnessed the incident. If you or a loved one works as a roofing contractor and has been injured at work, you may be interested in discussing the possibility of making a personal injury claim that includes recovering the cost of counselling.
When you are injured on the job and decide to file a claim for compensation you should consider whether or not you are in need of counselling. If you are suffering from depression, anxiety attacks, or flashbacks relating to the accident, you are advised to mention it to the solicitor representing you. He or she will be able to put you in touch with a counsellor who specialises in the specific area of concern and explain how to go about recording and reclaiming the cost of treatment and travelling expenses. Everything will be included in your personal injury claim and both you and your solicitor will receive copies of the counsellor’s reports and invoices, which will help ensure you do not suffer any additional stress as your claim proceeds.
Injuries and accidents roofing contractors may be involved in which could require roofing contractor accident counselling
Some of the injuries sustained by roofing contractors can be easily treated with little need for follow-up or long-term care, while others are more severe and complex and are commonly known as traumatic injuries. They are noteworthy for causing extensive and severe damage to the body and frequently result in the need for medical, rehabilitative and psychological care long after the, initially physical, injury has healed.
Traumatic injuries may be localised, affecting only a specific area, or they may affect the body in its entirety. You may wish to seek out roofing contractor accident counselling and information regarding personal injury claims, if you are a roofing contractor and have been injured while at work. At Accident Advice Helpline we have successfully acted for clients in the building industry who have suffered from a shockingly wide variety of accidents, including crush injuries; traumatic amputation or amputation resulting from an injury to an extremity; traumatic brain injury, head injury or concussion; penetration by a foreign body such as a steel rod or pipe; nerve, muscle and tissue damage; paralysis and other spinal trauma; shoulder, neck and back injuries; and fractures, lacerations or deep cuts.
Due to the nature of the industry it is often necessary to work under extreme conditions; for example, at heights on roof trusses or on scaffolding and in high wind, rain, or other inclement weather. Other hazards include malfunctioning safety equipment, poorly maintained equipment and tools, and a general failure for the site manager to comply with UK health and safety regulations.
