If you have had a serious accident a work which you feel will prevent you from going back to work for some time to come, has cost you quite a lot in medical bills or was simply traumatic enough that you don’t want to let it go, making a compensation claim could be a good option for you. You should find an experienced North Norfolk law firm who will be happy to work with you and help you to make a successful claim, so that the process is easier on you and you can focus on your recovery. Here are some of the conditions and injuries you can make a claim for.
Manual handling injuries
These are most common with more physical jobs such as construction, but any time you have injured yourself when trying to handle heavy or awkward pieces of equipment you may well have a case for compensation. It is worth speaking to an injury lawyer about your accident to work out with them if someone else is at fault.
This is something which will come on over time, but is still worth thinking about as a case for a compensation claim if your employer has been negligent in some way. This may be if you have not been provided with the appropriate hearing protection or simply been forced to work in an environment which is too noisy.
Repetitive strain injury
This is very common with those who work in offices typing all day, and can be prevented with plenty of breaks, wrist rests and so on. Although it may not seem very serious, it still offers you a great case for compensation.
