Just looking for some general advice and what our possible options are. A few weeks ago my wife had an accident at work, she was on site and somehow the ground gave way and although it wasn't a big drop the landing and surprise of it jarred her back. They did reports etc and it was all documented. She's been in pain since, it seemed like it was getting a bit better but recently it's got worse, especially when driving. Health services have been pretty crap, she phoned the GP and they said they can't help, she needs to go to walk-in clinic, walk-in clinic said they can't help, she needs to go to GP etc. Luckily GP yesterday agreed to see her and she had a good one. So wife has been signed off work for 2 weeks. Sick pay entitlement at her work isn't all that generous, basically 5 days a year, I think she's taken one already so will get 4 then 6 unpaid with maybe a very small amount of SSP. She is the main wage earner so it will have an impact, although we've got a bit of savings so won't struggle just yet. It is scary though to think what if it doesn't get better or she needs some more time off. Obviously my view is she has to take as long as she needs, she was reluctant to even take the two weeks and was quite upset, but in the end that's what she needs. Do we have any rights in view of the fact that it's related to a work injury? Obviously you get those had an accident at work no win no fee solicitors, we're not looking at doing that really unless it comes to a point we genuinely feel disadvantaged.
