Work Related Head Injury
Head injuries suffered in the workplace can range from a minor knock causing bruising to a serious brain injury. Whatever the severity, head injuries are painful and the most serious can be life altering. Even minor head injuries can lead to headaches, dizziness and problems with vision. Employers have a duty to implement health and safety measures to ensure their staff and any visitors are following safe practices and suitable measures are in place. Most head injuries in the workplace are preventable.

Types of Claim
The most common reasons for a workplace head injury are:
• Slips, trips and falls
• Falling objects
• Vehicle crash
The head is a very delicate area of the body and the injuries it can suffer vary. It may fall into one of the following categories:
• Fractured Skull
• Brain Damage
• Problems with vision
Whilst these injury types are mostly physical, the long term affects of head injuries can be devastating. It is not uncommon for brain injuries to lead to other problems such as difficulty sleeping, depression, memory loss and concentration difficulties. These may be a direct result of the injury or the consequences from the emotional traumaof the accident and recovery. This can not only have a major impact on your life but also on your family. Whatever the circumstances, Injury Lawyers UK want to hear from you. If your employer has not met full health and safety standards, they may be liable.
