If you have been involved in an accident and are looking for an accident solicitor Highgate Village firm, then you probably live in the area. You may have suffered an injury in an accident that was not your fault, or you may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness. You can claim compensation for both personal injury and any illness that was caused because of someone else’s negligence. In both instances you could be thinking of hiring an accident solicitor in Highgate Village or any other solicitor with a proven track record of successful compensation claims.
If you sustained a personal injury in an accident that was no fault of yours, then you can claim compensation. You can also claim for any work-related illness. You must, however, begin your compensation claim within three years of the accident or within three years of first being diagnosed with an illness as this is the statute of limitations’ stipulation.
One of the most common illnesses is repetitive strain injury which can be sustained if your job involves assembling small components, or if you use a PC which has not been adjusted to your needs. If you use a PC at work, you need to have a footrest, a screen angled at 20 degrees and the desk on which the monitor sits should be adjustable, as should your seat. Your health and safety at work person (perhaps your shop steward if you are in a union) should have checked that your workstation is suited to your particular needs. Failure to meet the Health and Safety at Work regulations means that your employer is liable for your illness in a case such as repetitive strain injury.
Other common work-related illnesses are work-related upper limb disorders which are again caused by repetitive movements and which affect your arms, shoulders and neck. You might have to pull equipment around repeatedly, perhaps if you work in a bakery in a supermarket, for example and have to move bread to the shelves with a large bread cage.
