Perhaps you have sustained an injury in an accident that was not your fault and are searching for an accident solicitor in Beningbrough in your phone book. You may or may not find one, so perhaps you have searched online for an accident solicitor in Beningbrough. Did you know that apart from being able to claim compensation for injuries sustained in accidents you can also claim compensation for work-related illnesses?
If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, such as Vibration White Finger (VWF) or Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) then you may have grounds for making a compensation claim against your employer. Under the Health and Safety at Work regulations, employers have a responsibility to safeguard their employees from health risks and dangers. Failure to comply with these regulations can lead to compensation claims from employees who can claim their employer was negligent.
For example, if you have a workstation with your PC on it, then the desk should be adjustable, so that it is at a height most suitable for you, and your monitor should be at a twenty degree angle. You should have an adjustable seat which supports your lower back, and you should also be provided with a footrest.
If your employer has not provided you with such items of office equipment, and you develop RSI you could have a claim for personal injury compensation.
In the case of VWF, if your employer did not provide you with safety gloves while you were operating a high-powered drill and you subsequently developed VWF, then you could have grounds to make a claim for compensation. If you were provided with gloves, but failed to wear them, then your employer could not be held responsible for your injury.
