Head injuries sustained in an accident at work can have serious or catastrophic consequences for the injured party. Cognitive, physical and social function can be impaired and it can seem as though life has been turned upside down in an instant; not just for the injured person but also their family and friends.
Your employer has a responsibility to take steps to ensure your working environment is safe. If you have been injured at work as a result of someone else’s negligence then you are entitled to claim compensation for the injury and losses you have suffered.
When serious and permanent head injury is sustained, no amount of compensation can turn back the clock and return life to how it was before the accident. At Work Claims Bureau, we take pride in both securing the best possible settlement for our clients, and ensuring that our we help provide them with the future help and support they need.
We offer our clients ongoing support in progressing their claim towards the best possible outcome. We can also help you access medical rehabilitation, counselling and occupational support.
The awards brackets shown* relate to the ‘general damages’ (this means the award for the injury and associated pain, suffering and loss of amenity). There are two elements to any award in a successful accident at work compensation claim: ‘general damages’ and ‘special damages’ (expenses and other material losses arising from the injuries). In cases of more severe injury, the award for ‘special damages’ can be greater than the award for the injury itself.
