Some of the injuries innocent victims sustain in accidents at work are very serious, and each year over 100 innocent victims lose their lives in this way. The injuries that happen can change peoples lives forever, and those of their loved ones as they all come to terms with what has happened and learn to adjust their lives to cope with the injuries.
Apart from the costs that can be involved the emotional trauma can be dramatic for everyone, and this is why victims should be getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to make an Epping Forest accident at work claim.
The serious injuries that can result in an Epping Forest accident at work claim
Injuries can range from minor to major, and the way they affect victims can vary greatly, but some of the more serious injuries we come across are:
- Loss of limbs – if you lose an arm or leg, or maybe both, just imagine how different life would be. You may suddenly be confined to a wheelchair, or have to get used to doing everything one handed. Of course there are false limbs available, but they are not suitable for all victims, and even for the ones that can use them, they are obviously very different from the real thing.
- Loss of sight – to be suddenly plunged into a world of darkness, to never see those that you love again, can be one of the most traumatic experiences for a victim to have to go through. It happens to victims of accidents at work every year, and many of them turn to Accident Advice Helpline to make an Epping Forest accident at work claim for the compensation they are entitled to.
- Brain injuries – even the mildest of brain injuries, concussion, can have long term effects for the victims, it is not just the couple of days of bad heads that most people imagine it to be. If the injury is one of the more serious ones, such as a penetrating brain injury, if the victim survives, they could be in a vegetative state for the rest of their lives, or need to live in a care home because they need to be looked after 24 hours a day.
These are just three examples of how a serious injury can change your life, there are many more, and you can claim compensation for all of them if the accident at work was not your own fault.
