Injury lawyers in Lower Wolvercote
You may be looking for injury lawyers in Lower Wolvercote, for example because you were injured in an accident which you can prove was not your fault. Usually you have three years in which to claim for injuries in an accident which happened in the British Isles. However, if you had an accident outside the UK, for example on a ship, boat or an aircraft, or at any airport, you only have two years in which to make your claim.
A firm of injury lawyers in Lower Wolvercote, or ones based at a location close to where you live, can also represent you if you wish to make a personal injury compensation claim for an illness which you can prove was caused by the negligence of another person.
There are a variety of illnesses which may be work-related and if you can prove that your illness was the result of the negligence of your employer, you may be entitled to make an injury claim against him or her.
Reasons for work-related illnesses vary as much as the illnesses themselves. You may have been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury (RSI) or work-related upper limb disorder (WRLD) for example. These can be caused if you have not been adequately trained to do your job with the minimum amount of risk to your health, or if your work station (if you work all day on a PC) has not been adjusted to suit your height.
Other illnesses such as Vibration White Finger (VWF), may have been caused because you were not given the appropriate protective gloves to wear while operating a high-powered drill (for example).
If you have been diagnosed with a respiratory illness, it may be because your employer failed to provide you with breathing apparatus.
