Are you making a no win no fee Highland claim after working with computers?
If your job role requires you to use a computer on a regular basis, there is a chance that you could be hurt as a result. Whilst unexpected injuries can occur if a computer is broken or knocked off a desk, there are also more predictable injuries and illnesses which can arise from regular computer use.
If, for example, your desk isn’t an appropriate shape or height, you could find that you are slouching whilst at work. If you are continuously crooking your neck just to try and see the computer screen, you could end up developing back pain. In some cases, this may go on to develop into inflammation or an even more serious problem.
Similarly, people can often develop carpal tunnel syndrome or another type of repetitive strain injury if they use a computer regularly. In order to ensure that this doesn’t happen, your employer should be willing to make adjustments to your working area so that you are able to perform your duties safely.
If you are required to use a computer at work, you should ensure that your employer is willing to allow you to take regular breaks. Looking at a computer screen for hours on end can put a strain on your eyes and many people find that they begin to develop headaches when working for long periods.
If you begin to suffer any discomfort as a result of working with computers, you should discuss this with your manager or your employer’s HR Department. If they fail to act and you continue to suffer, you may want to make a no win no fee Highland claim against them. If you can show that they contribute to or caused your injuries, it’s likely that your no win no fee Highland claim will be successful.
