Head injury compensation claims – an introduction
If you have been in an accident at work, you may have sustained a head injury.
A number of accidents can result in concussions, lacerations, brain damage and other serious injuries, including:
- Falls from a height such as a ladder or scaffold
- Falling objects that were not stacked properly
- Flying debris
- Faulty tools or machinery
- Accidents involving workplace transport such as fork lift trucks
Legally, your employer has a responsibility to adhere to health and safety regulations to mitigate the chances of employees suffering a head injury at work. For example, if you are at work on a construction site, your employer should issue you with a hard hat, and ensure that all helmets are worn whilst at work on site. If they fail to do this, they could be made to pay out Blantyre accident at work compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are dedicated to ensuring all accident victims receive the money they are entitled to in compensation. If your employer has displayed negligence that has resulted in you sustaining and injury, they should be held responsible for this neglect. We have a team of over 190 solicitors working around the country, all of who specialise in personal injury claims.
We have dealt with cases involving workplace accidents that have lead to head injuries for over fourteen years, and drawing on our experience, we’ll fight hard to ensure you get the money you deserve if the accident was not your fault.
