Case study

15 April 2008

One client whose case Kynixa recently managed was employed as a straddle crane driver prior to his accident. He suffered a head injury at a dockyard. Although he experienced no cognitive dysfunction, he complained of continuous dizziness, so much so that even 18 months after his accident he had still not returned to work.

It was soon apparent he would be unable to return to his original job and would need help with re-training, as he had no formal qualifications for a new career.

Although, technically, he was too old to be accepted for an apprenticeship scheme, Kynixa managed to find him a place on a scheme and he was employed as a since gone on to become a registered gas fitter and his earnings are now only marginally lower than his income as a crane driver.
