The city of Perth in Scotland prides itself on its “safe and friendly” environment, according to the city’s official website. It is also flat and not difficult to get around. However accidents will happen, as they say, even in the safest of environments. If you have had an accident in Perth which resulted in a personal injury which was not caused because of your negligence in any way, you could have a case for claiming compensation.
Before you start running your finger down the solicitors listings for Perth in your telephone directory, or typing in ‘injury claim in solicitors Perth’ to a search engine, perhaps you should consider giving Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
Injury claim in solicitors in Perth
It is possible that you could find Accident Advice Helpline when you type ‘injury claim solicitors in Perth’ in the search box. That is because this law firm has a team of legal experts in the field of personal injury claims which operate all over the country. If you prefer to hire a local firm of solicitors however, that is entirely your prerogative. The only advice is that you ensure that the solicitor you choose to represent you in pursuing a personal injury compensation claim is an experienced personal injury claims one. You wouldn’t go to a bookshop for your groceries, and you shouldn’t hire a family law solicitor (for example) to represent you in a personal injuries claim.
Health problems and the workplace environment
There have been a number of cases of repetitive strain injuries sustained in the workplace. What are they? They are painful conditions caused by doing some actions repeatedly. For example you may have repetitive strain from sitting at your computer for seven or eight hours a day. Your employer may not have supplied your work station with a footrest or your desk may be at the wrong height for you and your computer screen may not be angled correctly, in which case you may damage your eyesight, and so on.
An employer has to follow the Health and Safety at Work regulations and if he/she has not done so, and this has resulted in a medical condition or a personal injury, then you have a case for claiming compensation for your medical condition. You may have work-related upper limb disorders (WRULB) and these are caused by assembling small components or they might be caused by pulling a bread cage from a supermarket’s bakery to the shelves, or any other repetitive movement which leads to painful upper limbs (arms, shoulders, neck and so on)
