Types of work injury claim


Suffering work-related accidents is unfortunate, but it does happen, and it could happen to you. If it does, you need to know whether you can claim compensation. It may be considered obvious that claims can be made if an iron bar falls on your head on a construction site, but it’s equally true that claims can be made for such injuries as repetitive strain. A work injury claim can be made for any injury, not just ones that arise from accidents.

Repetitive strain injury compensation can be awarded if you develop RSI as a direct result of your job, such as if your task involves a lot of typing. Such an injury will not arise from accidents at work, but compensation can still be claimed.

Types of work accident compensation claims

Indeed, there are a number of types of work accident compensation claims that can be made, including, but not limited to:

  • Trips and falls
  • Burns
  • Lacerations
  • Colleague negligence
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Injury resulting from faulty products
  • Company negligence
  • Broken bones
  • Muscular or tissue injuries
  • Car accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Industrial injuries
  • Industrial deafness

Faulty product claims are perfectly valid claims if the products resulted in accidents suffered at work. Or, the product may have been safe but proper protocol was not adhered to, such as the company not providing appropriate hearing protection when using a pneumatic drill, resulting in tinnitus or other hearing problems. Alternatively, if years of using equipment like a pneumatic drill caused injuries like RSI or phantom vibrations in the arm nerves, compensation can be sought.

To find out quickly if you can receive compensation for a workplace injury, try the 30-second test at the Accident Advice Helpline website. Alternatively, you can ring the advice helpline, open 24/7, and talk to an advisor in confidence – and with no obligation to proceed, you don’t need to worry about anything.
