Living with the aftermath of a work accident – claiming accident at work compensation in Norwich
If you have been injured in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault and you suffered physical injuries then you may be entitled to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Norwich. You may also be entitled to make a claim for emotional distress or upheaval as direct result of the injuries you received during the accident.
Accidents in the workplace happen unexpectedly (as most accidents do) and therefore the accident victim will find themselves in a position where not only are they attempting to process what happened to them but also why it happened. A great number of accidents in the workplace happen because of other people’s failure to adhere to certain protocols and procedures and Accident Advice Helpline are here to help you if you have been one of the people affected by such an accident and its aftermath.
Coming to terms with your injuries
Having an accident at any time can be traumatic, but it can be even more so if it happens to you in the workplace. In the workplace, just like a home, one expects that those around you are making sure that those things that could lead to an accident are identified and dealt with. A failure to do so can leave an accident victim such as you feeling bereft and unable to come to terms with what has happened. Accidents are likely to happen because of a series of misgivings that come together to form one uniform event such as a fall, slip or trip, and if these misgivings are such that those around you could have prevented them then you may be eligible to make a claim for accident at work compensation in Norwich. Your employer should be constantly on the ball when it comes to health and safety and if they have a significant sized workforce, they should be specifically employing someone or directing someone to have overall control of health and safety. A workplace without a first aid person or proper health and safety procedures in place is an accident waiting to happen and unfortunately, if the accident has happened to you, then there is a lot of time to spent in the coming weeks and months trying to understand why.
Anxiety, panic attacks, mood swings
All of the above are direct results of accidents that happen in the workplace without warning and whilst leaving the accident victim with injuries that might have otherwise been avoided. There are many who consider that if you do not sport bandages, plasters or casts then your injuries must have healed.
