Head and Brain Injury Compensation in Preston
Head and Brain injuries are often the most worrying type of accident at work injury. A family’s life can be turned upside down, following a head or brain injury to a loved one.
The sad truth is that the vast majority of head and brain injuries are unavoidable if an employer takes the proper precautions and complies with their legal responsibilities.
This could be something as simple as issuing their employees with protective headgear. At The Claims Partnership, we often find that failing to take the simplest precautions on the part of the employer are the ones which could have prevented the most serious injuries that we tackle with our clients.
Common Causes of Head and Brain Injuries
- Being hit by a falling object.
- A collision with a workplace vehicle such as a forklift truck or tractor.
- A slip, trip or fall on the floor.
- A fall from height.
