Cherwell accident at work compensation


Accident Advice Helpline can help any worker to launch a Cherwell accident at work compensation claim, if they’ve suffered an MSD in the workplace. MSD is the abbreviation for “Musculoskeletal Disorders”, which is a common injury that befalls many people employed in manual handling positions.

What are musculoskeletal disorders?

A musculoskeletal disorder is the term given to any damage or injuries that are caused to muscles, joints, tendons and any other tissues in the upper limbs, the lower limbs, and the back. They are mostly caused by manual handling and/or repetitive tasks.

Upper limb disorders (ULDs)

Upper limb disorders (ULDs) are conditions that affect the arm, from the shoulders right down to the hands, the shoulders themselves (as in rotator cuff injury), the neck, and the spine. The majority of ULDs come about through assuming an incorrect posture, by working in an unusual position, or by lifting and carrying heavy loads.

Putting appropriate mechanisms and systems in place to avoid MSDs

One of the most frustrating things about musculoskeletal disorders is that nine times out of 10 they can be avoided. There are several ways that this avoidance can take place, including:

  • Using all provisionally appropriate mechanical lifting aids
  • Rotating shifts or duties to lessen the amount of time spent carrying out hazardous tasks, and to allow time for recovery in between shifts.
  • By taking regular breaks
  • By providing and using the correct and appropriate seating
  • Surveying workstations and making sure they are ergonomically sound, and if not, taking any necessary action

Launching a Cherwell accident at work compensation claim for an MSD sustained at work

MSDs not only prevent people from carrying out their work duties temporarily, but they can have lasting effects too, which can affect a person’s chosen career path. They can also interfere with people’s personal and social lives. This will be taken into consideration when any Cherwell accident at work compensation claim is registered to ensure that appropriate financial reparation is made.

Finding out how much compensation you are due

In order to work out how much compensation you might be due for the injury you’ve sustained, you should pay a visit to Accident Advice Helpline’s website and seek out the HOW MUCH calculator that can be found there. You can then take what we refer to as the 30 second test. It simply involves providing the answers to 4 simple questions relating to your injury. Once you’ve provided this information, the calculator will then check to see if your claim appears to be valid, and if it does, it will then issue you with an estimate.
