    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Injury lawyer in Harris


    A couple of months ago, I had an accident at work. One of the shelves broke and it fell right on me, with the books and heavy files that were on it. I was knocked out and woke up in the hospital. After a couple of minutes of not waking up, my colleagues seriously panicked and called an ambulance.

     

    At the hospital they had already done a bunch of very expensive tests and told me that there seemed to be nothing wrong. I was supposed to stay home for a few weeks though, and take it easy, as the hit had been pretty hard. Also, I was supposed to come back after 6 months to take more tests and rule out any possibility of brain injuries.

     

    I must say that I didn’t mind it so much, in the end. I had a lot of free time and no medical problem, so I could do all the things that I never had time for before, like reading, cooking complicated recipes and volunteering a bit. The part that I didn’t like so much was that my insurance did not cover these types of tests. So I’d like to file a claim against the company I work for, or the company that installed those shelves, and ask for my money back. I really don’t think it’s fair that I pay for this, since I really had no fault in this whole story.
