Effects of a work-related injury
Any injury that is caused as a result of an accident can be a painful and debilitating experience. Being injured through an accident that wasn’t your fault can leave you feeling frustrated and angry that your life has been put on hold through no fault of your own. As well as the stress of recovering from a serious injury caused by an accident in the workplace, the victim may also have the additional financial burden of being unable to work until they are fit enough to return. This may take many weeks or even months to achieve, and may mean that they suffer financial hardship and debt.
