Injury claim in Longham

You could also be thinking of making an injury claim in Longham (for example), if you have been diagnosed with an illness which was caused by someone else’s negligence. You may have repetitive strain injury (RSI) either because you work on a keyboard typing all day and your work station has not been adjusted to suit your build, or because you assemble small components all day. In such circumstances you may be able to prove that your illness was caused by your employer’s negligence. The Health and Safety at Work regulations, which are overseen by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), give guidelines which both employers and employees should follow. They are designed so that health issues can be kept to a minimum and the risk of accidents is low.

Definitions of work-related illnesses

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration in the US define a work-related illness in the following way:-

“You must consider an injury or illness to be work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment either caused or contributed to the resulting condition or significantly aggravated a pre-existing injury or illness. Work-relatedness is presumed for injuries and illnesses resulting from events or exposures occurring in the work environment, unless an exception in § 1904.5(b)(2) specifically applies.”

The World Health Organization defines illnesses and diseases which are work-related in this way:-

“An “occupational disease” is any disease contracted primarily as a result of an exposure to risk factors arising from work activity. “Work-related diseases” have multiple causes, where factors in the work environment may play a role, together with other risk factors, in the development of such diseases.”

If you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness or an occupational disease in the last three years, then you may be able to make an injury claim in Longham, or one based elsewhere in the UK, against your employer.
