What is Work Accident Claims?
You can suffer any injury at work, ranging from repetitive strain injury to severe brain injury, or even death. Some of the more frequent reasons clients contact The Compensation Experts include:
- Industrial accidents, including crushed limbs;
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Falling from ladders, scaffolding, roofs, or other places at height;
- Muscular strain from incorrect lifting;
- Repetitive strain injury;
- Industrial deafness;
- Eye strain and headaches;
- Chemical burns.
For example, as part of his job, employers ask a man to help demolish a building.
The employers ask him to remove the supporting roof structures. However, he doesn’t have the correct training or knowledge to do this safely. Moreover, his employer didn’t undertake a risk assessment of the project.
While removing the roof structure, a steel supporting beam crushes his arm. Thus, it badly fractures it and causes pain, nerve damage, and limits its mobility within two years.
The case took nearly two years to resolve, in fact. Eventually, his employer’s insurers settle just before it was due to go to court. The victim’s lawyers obtain a significant payment in part because he sought legal advice early.
His work accident lawyer guides him through the process of getting expert medical reports. Moreover, they acquire assessments that prove the extent of the damage his accident causes.
