Re: advice

seems to have got a few people excited,

firstly an apology for m dredful gramm and spelling, i am not familiarr with tech y stuff, and use a key board like a secretary would use short hand,

the injuries, for the doubters, i was not aware of my back being broken untill three weeks after the ladder collapse, i new it was hurt ,but assumed it was a pulled muscle, i dosed up on tramodil(probably spelt wrong aswell), that i had left over from some dental operations,3 weeks later i collapsed with breathing difficulties, it seemed the internal swelling was doing something to a nerve, i was taken to a hospital, they put me in a scan ,and found 2 broken vertabrae, the doctor was horrified i had been working for 3 weeks, he signed me off for a week,(i said this would be enough) with pills to stop the internal swelling,

one year later, with the scaffold collapse, it was one three days before easter, i spent twoo days in hospital, then went home to uk for a pre planned visit, 10 days holiday, i suppose if i was a malingerer, i could have taken it as sick,but im not, and

last month, the quarry collapse, signed off 3 weeks, more if required,,but not needed,

my question was advice, needed,that has been answered enough,in the sense that my main worry was that if these knocks come back to haunt me, where did i stand, and i have been informed by a user, that legally i am covered by the original insurance, it is unlikely to happen ,

if i wass the type to make a claim, i think all of the above would be excuse enough,however, whislt my spelling is cr..., my appetite for work is not,as my wife says, i am the only person she knows who will have on my gravestone...wish i spent more time at work...,many thanks for all the helpful advice

Re: advice

The guy is asking for help after some dreadful events, and he is called on the carpet about his use of English? There are some real losers on EF.

Re: advice

At one point the cases are taken over by health insurance.

So as long as you are in Switzerland (as I don't know about the system in other countries) you will always be covered if you need treatment.

It's not my style to lay down and give in either but some things need time to heal and if you allow them to, your chance of it all just being a memory soon are better.

Good luck and get well soon.

Re: advice

All your work accidents must be registered with the employer's insurance company. Usually it is SUVA, who issue an incident number.

It is very important to keep all the documentation, SUVA is responsible for all subsequent illnesses from the accident, forever!

SUVA pay your sick pay to your employer, so don't go back to work until the doctor says you can!

Medical costs & your salary will be paid if you cant work until retirement. You wont get a cash payout, work accidents are covered by insurance in CH, paid for by your employer.

I think we already went into this in your previous threads on the same topic. It's a bit annoying to have to go back to your previous threads, only to find the same questions.

Have you done anything following the advice given in the previous threads???

Re: info required

Who is actually your accident insurance provider?

Damages could mean two things: reimbursement for financial losses (Schadenersatz) or satisfaction payment for pain and suffering (Genugtuung/Schmerzensgeld)

For the first you must be able to enumerate and proof your financial losses. For the later you must show that you had pain and suffering above the normal level or permanent disabilities. Furthermore you have to look that no time limit has passed and that there is a direct cause between the accident any wrongdoing from the company side or another person.

I've merged the threads, and I'm guessing OP hasn't followed any advice because he was hoping for an easier answer to what seems to be a complex situation.

OP - May I make a suggestion? When you're asking for help and info, use words like please and thank you. Your most recent subject of "info required" is really off-putting.

Also, provide enough information about the situation up front instead of drip-feeding, so our members can try to offer relevant links and info instead of wasting time trying to get a clear picture of the situation.

Please. And thanks.
