Neurological injuries at work claims

According to the NHS, neurological conditions result from damage to the brain, spinal column and peripheral nerves.

Neurological injuries at work can be caused by:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Being struck by a falling object
  • Exposure to neurotoxins such as chemicals, gasses, naturally occurring elements and synthetic compound

Many workers are exposed to such risks across a spectrum of industries. If you work with chemicals or other neurotoxic substances that may affect the brain or the nervous system, your employer has a duty to keep you as safe as possible. This includes:

  • Ensuring employees are wearing the appropriate personal protection wear
  • There is proper ventilation or closed production facilities to minimise exposure
  • That leaks are avoided and dealt with in the appropriate manner, if they do happen
  • The appropriate planning and training are putting into place
  • Worker health surveillance – conducting regular medical checks to detect signs of neurotoxicant intoxication

Neurological injuries sustained at work can result in:

  • Epilepsy
  • Sickness and vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Paralysis
  • Death

While this is not a comprehensive list, if your employer has failed in their duty to keep you from harm, then then it may be possible to make a neurological injury at work claim.

At Stephensons, we will always aim to get the maximum amount of compensation for your situation. A compensation pay-out can make all the difference to you and your family’s quality of life. Depending on your case, we can also ask for an interim payment, so that treatments or home adjustments can be paid for. An early compensation payment can also help you out financially if you have had trouble making ends meet due to not being able to work. It is worth noting that interim payments will be taken out of your final compensation award.

We will take a number of factors into account when it comes to calculating your workplace neurological injuries compensation, which includes:

  • The severity of your injury
  • The treatment is needed
  • Whether or not rehabilitation is needed (e.g. physio, mental health counselling etc)
  • Loss of earnings
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Out of pocket expenses

If you think you have a workplace neurological injuries claim, then contact our specialist work accident solicitors on 0203 816 0065.
