Hello, I don't often post on here, but I enjoy reading what others have posted and find it helpful.
I was in a serious car accident in Jan 2015 (in Mexico) and had an acquired TBI (as well as a range of other things!). I was in hospital until June 2015 and spent the rest of the year recovering and building my strength at home.
I went back to work in Jan 2016 - I started at two days a week for the first month and then increased it to 3 (which I'm still on). Work said to me last November that they didn't think I was performing at my job level but they would work with me to support me. However, that support hasn't really manifested itself. This January I was supposed to have my annual review (everyone else did) but it was delayed and its just been postponed. Instead, they've just told me they want me to have a vocational assessment. I'm actually going to the expense of doing this myself (it'll cost me £1k), in order that I can then challenge my insurance company over their paltry payout offer. My dilemma is that work has offered to pay for this vocational assessment, which is fantastic - but obviously I want it to be as pessimistic as possible in order to challenge my travel insurance but I want it to be as positive as possible for work. This has put me in a bit of a quandary. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you
