    Five common workplace accidents that require an accident and injury specialist in Calderdale

    There are many different incidents that can lead people to looking for the services of an accident and injury specialist in Calderdale. Many people end up filing compensation claims against their employers for incidents that have happened in the workplace.

    In this post we are going to take a look at five of the most common workplace incidents that lead to personal injury claims.

    Common workplace incidents that an accident and injury specialist in Calderdale can deal with

    Repetitive strain injury – Repetitive strain injury occurs when you have been doing something for too long. It is an injury to the muscles and tendons. Whilst it can happen in any type of workplace, it is actually most common amongst people that sit at their desk and work for extended periods of time on a computer. If you do not feel your employer has done enough to prevent this from happening, you will be able to make a claim.

    Construction accidents – Needless to say, some working environments are more dangerous than others and construction sites are one of the most dangerous. If an incident has occurred and you believe that there wasn’t enough done to prevent it or someone else is to blame, then you will have a high chance of getting compensation.

    Industrial deafness – This injury typically occurs over time and so people find that they are usually making a claim against an ex employer as opposed to their current one. You will need to be able to show that your employer is responsible for your injury, i.e. they may not have provided suitable protective equipment or training.

    Poor health and safety – All employers have a duty by law to ensure that the working environment is safe and healthy. If they have failed to do so and you have suffered as a result you will be able to claim.

    Vibration white finger – This is an injury that occurs when people have used hand held vibrating machinery for too long or they have misused it. This is another muscle injury. Similar to the other injuries that have been mentioned, you will need to show that your employer is at fault. Perhaps they did not provide you with the correct details on how to use the machine correctly?
