An accident at work in Northamptonshire can have devastating effects on your life, depending on what type of accident it was, and how severe your injuries are. If you sustain a brain injury for example, from falling from height on a construction site, it could be that it is not only your life that is affected, but those of your whole family as well.
Dealing with the effects of an accident at work in Northamptonshire
There are many serious injuries that result from an accident at work in Northamptonshire, including:
- Losing limbs
- Brain and head injuries
- Back and spine injuries
- Facial injuries
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Internal injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Burns and scalds
These are just a few of the injuries that can result from an accident at work in Northamptonshire, and in fact in any type of accident anywhere in the country.
If you have severe leg damage, for instance, and find that you have to be confined to a wheelchair, the home you live in might not be suitable for adaption and you therefor may have to move home, a costly affair. You could lose your sight, and then how would you cope with day to day living, and of course a severe brain injury could mean you need 24 hour care.
The changes in lifestyle for any serious injuries can be very costly, and although the state helps as much as it can, it is never enough to make life totally comfortable for the victim.
Compensation can help
When you are in this situation, if someone else caused the accident in which you were injured, you may be entitled to claim compensation from them. In the UK, as in most other countries worldwide, this is a legal right, and one you should make sure you exercise. Currently only 3 out of 10 victims claim the compensation they are entitled to, and the rest struggle on without any help.
When you claim compensation, it is not just your injuries that are looked at, but also the effect they have had on your life, and any costs and losses that you have had to bear because of the accident.
