Severe injuries suffered in the workplace
Whilst at work, you are busy with what you need to do in order to earn your salary and to ensure that your role is fulfilled within the business. This means that for the most part you are concentrating on what you have to do and also on keeping yourself and those around you safe. You are not necessarily considering an accident befalling you so if an accident does befall you it will: (a) come as a physical and emotional shock and (b) leave you with injuries that may necessitate you taking a lot of time off to recover.
When this happens, it can definitely be a shock to the system emotionally and physically but it can also be a shock to your household especially if your absence from work leaves you without a regular income until you are well enough to return to work. In some instances as Accident Advice Helpline is only too familiar with, the loss (or lack) of an income can force individuals suffering from injuries to return to work sooner than they would like. This being the case you may be entitled to make a claim for office accident compensation in Treharris.
Long term absence because of an accident
No one wants to be off work any longer than they need to be and this also applies to your employer who will probably not want you to be off work any longer than necessary. If you have been requested by your employer to return to work sooner than you should and as a result have suffered a relapse or further injury because your wounds have not healed correctly then you may well be entitled to claim office accident compensation in Treharris. As part of your company’s health and safety policies there should be provisions made for any member of staff having to take long periods off as the result of accidental injuries. Failure to adhere to these rules and regulations and having you return to work too soon may leave you in a worse condition than before.
