Feet Hurt After Work?
If your feet hurt after work and cause you ongoing and constant pain, you may have suffered a stress fracture or other serious injury in the course of carrying out your duties. If this is because of a lack of proper personal protective equipment or the actions of your employers, this injury is not your fault and you may be eligible to seek compensation. In the eyes of the law, anyone who suffers an injury which was not their fault deserves to be compensated for the emotional, physical and financial costs that can ensue.
Legal and Moral Responsibility
At first you may feel slightly reticent about seeking compensation if your feet hurt after work because of an injury that was not your fault, but it is important to understand that employers have a moral and legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their employees. As such, if a mistake or deliberate act on their part has endangered the safety of their workforce, it is important that they are held to account for their actions. What’s more, even if you do feel a little hesitant about seeking compensation, you may well need to in order to cover what can be pretty exorbitant costs resulting from injuries.
What Do I Do?
Before you do anything else you need to get your injury treated, as the underlying cause is likely to be the type of injury that will only get worse if left untreated. A secondary result of seeking medical advice is also the production of expert documentary evidence of your injury and its extent, which often proves useful in the event of a compensation claim. It is also important to keep a record of when and how often you need to visit doctors and medical professionals, as this can also help to move along compensation proceedings.
