    A helpful work-related injury or illness definition


    Do you know of a work-related injury or illness definition that would help you identify whether you have been made ill or been injured in the workplace? The best definition would be that an illness or injury was directly caused by the working environment. This means if you had not been in that environment, you would not have fallen ill or been injured.

    Additionally, you may have been safe had appropriate measures been taken to guarantee that would be the case. Health and safety laws are very strict and if they are properly followed, as most employers do, very few chances should exist for employees to fall ill or be hurt in an accident.

    Understanding a work-related injury or illness definition

    If you were injured at work, there would be a need to identify the cause of the accident. If a third party was proven to be negligent, there would be an opportunity to try and claim compensation in return for the injuries you received.

    The same would apply if you were made ill by the conditions you were working in. Perhaps you should have been issued with personal protective equipment, and yet nothing of the kind was achieved. If so, you could be entitled to claim if you have irrefutable proof that someone was responsible for your illness.

    Is there a chance for you to claim compensation?

    Identifying and understanding a work-related injury or illness definition does help with assessing the chances of making a claim. Few people have in-depth knowledge of the claims process regarding personal injuries, and some are nervous of upsetting their position at work. However, you do have a right in the eyes of the law to consider whether your employer was negligent, and to seek compensation if evidence exists.
