    Injury lawyers in Lacock

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Lacock

    You may have visited Lacock while in the Cotswolds, or perhaps you have visited Lacock Abbey or the Fox Talbot museum. You would doubtless have been impressed by this village with its mixture of architecture, the black and white half-timbered buildings mixing with Georgian brick buildings and those made from the honey-coloured Cotswold stone. You may also be anticipating visiting Lacock to go Christmas shopping to buy hand-crafted items as presents.

    Even in such a delightful village as Lacock, though, accidents do happen, and if you have been injured in one that you can prove was not your fault, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Lacock or ones based close to where you live. If your accident occurred in the UK, then you generally have three years in which to make a personal injury compensation claim.

    Injury lawyers in Lacock

    Of course, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Lacock or some based elsewhere because you have been diagnosed with an illness which you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence. Perhaps the obvious examples of such illnesses are work-related ones and occupational diseases.

    Work-related illnesses

    If, for example you have been diagnosed with an illness such as repetitive strain injury (RSI) it could be that your work station has not been adjusted to suit your height. Your chair should be adjustable too and it should support your lower back. The PC screen should be correctly angled and the top of your desk should have been adjusted so that you can work on it comfortably.

    Your employer should also provide you with a footrest. Failure to have done this could constitute negligence on the part of your employer, who has a duty to safeguard the health and safety of all employees. Your injury lawyers in Lacock or elsewhere will probably be able to help you file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been diagnosed with such an illness within the last three years.

    You may also suffer from work-related upper limb disorder (WRULD), another form of RSI. There are some activities which increase the risk of RSI and WRULD, such as:-

    • doing an activity, such as assembling small components or pushing or pulling a cage, for a long time without adequate rest;
    • doing an activity that involves force, such as lifting heavy objects if you have not been properly trained in how to do this safely;
    • poor posture or activities that require you to work in an awkward position for example if your work station has not been adjusted to accommodate you
    • cold temperatures, such as those you have in refrigeration units
    • vibrating equipment such as high-powered drills.

    Stress can also be a factor in RSI.
