Injury solicitors in Leith

You will generally have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim if your accident and injury occurred within the British Isles. However, you only have two years in which to make a claim for injuries which occurred at sea, in the air or at an airport. Also, if you were injured during the course of a crime, you would only have two years in which to file a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). If there is any doubt in your mind regarding how long you have in which to file your claim, contact injury solicitors in Leith, or call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have.

Work-related illnesses

If you have to do manual work, you may be at risk of injuries if you have not been properly trained to manually lift heavy objects. If you have been given inadequate training in how to lift something safely and have been asked to lift a heavy object, you may injure your back. If you do so, you may be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim against your employer, who should have provided you with the necessary training.

If you have been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury (RSI), it might be because you work at a computer all day and do not have your workstation adjusted to suit your height and build. You should have a seat which is adjustable and which supports your lower back, as well as a footrest. If your employer has not provided you with these things and you are diagnosed with RSI, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against them because they have been negligent in their duty towards you as regards your health and safety. There are strict guidelines which employers should follow in order to protect the health and safety of their workers.
