hey all just wanted some feedback about something that happened to me a few weeks ago:
i was working (in a retail store) one sunday clearning a potentially dangerous hazzard from some shelves which had wall hanging items.
while i was doing this a rather large mirror around 5 foot fell and the big frame hit me sqaure on the back of my head. i didn't pass out but if it was a cartoon i'd have seen them stars. anyway, i managed to get up and make the area safe so it wouldn't happen again.
i then went and hold the dep store manager, not much interest. i asked to get a drink cause i felt a bit ill after it. i had my drink and had to carry on with my shift. we then as a store had a meeting for 3 hours :(
we were able to get some food after. during that week i had to go to a and e after a trip to the walkin centre told me i had to get checked out after a constant headache. i was told i had concussion but if it continued to come back.
wel the following sunday at the same job i wasn;t doing very well and smacked my head on a shelf and went again to a and e after nearly knocking myself out. at a and e i had a ct scan and thankfully there is a brain and no swelling or damage just the concussion.
right so afer reading that would you consider putting in a accident claim as everyone that knows what has happened has told me to. even some people i work with in both that job and my main job. thankfully the week of the accident i was able to do light duties in my other job otherwise i'd have been up the creak as it were
thoughts advice etc
only ask cause i've just getting over the cold and the docs think its cause i didn't take any time off when i had the constant headache and might have weaken my immune system thus getting a really bad case of the cold which stopped me from working :(
i don't think it would be worth even bothering but i thought i should try and get some third party thoughts
cheers for reading!
