If you have sustained a head or neck injury in an accident at work you may be entitled to compensation; Michael Lewin Solicitors in Leeds helped Mr J make a case for compensation following an accident that was not his fault.
Head or neck injuries have the potential to turn into lifelong problems for sufferers. If you have suffered a head or neck injury you should speak to a qualified solicitor about making a claim for compensation. It is not just money you can claim in compensation. If your injury was your employer’s fault you can also claim from their insurance to pay for private rehabilitation in order for you to make a full recovery from your injury. You do not necessarily have to make a claim for monetary compensation.
Many insurers work closely with rehabilitation companies in order to help employees that have been injured recover from the injury. If you have sustained a head or neck injury this may be an option you are considering. Instead of paying for expensive physiotherapy treatment yourself make a claim for compensation and the third party who was responsible for your accident will pay the bill.
To claim neck or head injury at work compensation speak to a solicitor at Michael Lewin in Leeds. We can explain to you the process of making a claim for compensation and all the options available to you.
Do not worry that by making a claim for compensation the money will be coming directly from your employer’s pocket and that they will make you leave your employment. Firstly all employers are required by law to have an up to date insurance policy covering them for any accidents that happen to staff and clients in the workplace; the money you get in compensation comes from the insurer and not your employer.
Secondly your employer cannot terminate you employment on the grounds that you have made a claim for compensation. It is against the law for an employer to do so as it is unfair dismissal. If you have had an accident at work you are entitled to make a claim if it was your employer’s fault. If they do try to terminate your employment however Michael Lewin’s team of expert employment law solicitors will also be able to help you deal with that.
