What happens if you sustain a concussion at work?
A concussion is a brain injury that occurs after the head has sustained a traumatic impact. This can be anything from falling items to slipping on a hard floor, or even an accident whilst driving a work-related vehicle. When the brain comes into contact with the skull, it starts to swell, which can cause the victim to suffer many unpleasant symptoms. These can include:
- Headaches and migraines
- Irritability/mood swings
- Trouble sleeping
The number of symptoms as well as the severity of them will depend on the concussion, but for many victims, these side-effects can take months to dissipate. If you have sustained a concussion at work, you could be entitled to claim Hart accident at work compensation.
If you believe the negligence of your employer lead to your accident, you could hold them responsible, and potentially receive thousands of pounds in financial compensation. At Accident Advice helpline, we have over fourteen years of experience handling workplace-related accident claims, and have dealt with numerous cases involving concussions before. If you need help from an experienced law firm that can provide you with the best chances of a successful settlement, we are here to help.
How much could you be missing out on in Hart accident at work compensation?
