Expert injury solicitors in Petersfield
You may be trying to locate expert injury solicitors in Petersfield because you have been injured in an accident that you can prove was not your fault. If your accident occurred in the UK within the last three years, you may be eligible to make a claim. There are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years in which to claim. If you are not sure how long you have to claim for your injuries, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
You may also be looking for a firm of injury solicitors in Petersfield if you have been told by a doctor that you have an illness and you can prove that it was caused by another person’s negligence. You usually have three years from diagnosis in which to file a claim for this kind of illness.
You may have been diagnosed with an illness such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) or Work-Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD). You may work assembling small parts, or work on a PC all day, or perhaps you do a lot of pushing and pulling, perhaps because you push cages around a large bakery, for example. If you have not received adequate training to do the job, you may be able to prove that your employer had been negligent in their duty of care to you and so you could be entitled to file a personal injury compensation claim against them.
If you work on a computer, your work station should have been adjusted to suit your height and you should have been given a footrest. The screen should be angled at 20º away from you and your chair should support your lower back. If these things have not been done, you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for your medical problem and be able to prove negligence on the part of your employer.
