    Common roofing worker accidents and injuries requiring roofing worker accident counselling

    A traumatic injury can affect a part or the entire body and is defined by the severity and extent of the damage inflicted. In very rare cases traumatic injuries may result in the death of the individual. Working under extreme conditions, at great heights and with minimal protection from the elements, means you may be subject to a variety of severe and debilitating injuries that merit making personal injury claim for compensation, which includes reclaiming the cost of psychological counselling.

    Typical traumatic injuries sustained by roofers include concussion and other brain damage; amputation and crush damage; spinal trauma and paralysis; back, neck and shoulder damage; long-term or permanent damage to the muscles, nerves and other tissues; fractures and deep cuts and lacerations. The most common causes of such injuries are malfunctioning and poorly maintained equipment, inadequate training, failure of the employer to properly perform a risk assessment for the job in hand and non-compliance with UK health and safety legislation.

    Roofing worker accident compensation

    The amount of compensation awarded is determined on a case by case basis and falls into two categories, general damages and special damages. General damages includes compensation for pain and suffering, while special damages covers fees for medical care, including counselling, as well as loss of wages, travel expenses and any modifications to the home that may be needed to accommodate permanent injuries.
