    Paisley accident at work


    You probably know that you can get compensation from your employer if you are hurt in a sudden, unexpected Paisley accident at work that was not your fault. However, you may not realise that you can also get compensation if you have sustained an injury by simply doing your job.

    Repetitive trauma injuries

    Unlike other types of workplace injuries, repetitive trauma injuries occur over time. They do not result from a single, specific event, but happen gradually as the result of the overuse of a particular part of the body.

    Examples of repetitive trauma injuries include:

    • Wrist and hand injuries from typing
    • Back injuries from heavy lifting
    • Knee, leg and hip injuries from climbing ladders
    • Spine injuries from operating heavy equipment
    • Neck and back injuries from driving forklift trucks
    • Shoulders injuries from assembling parts on a factory line

    Often, the onset of repetitive trauma injuries is so gradual that you may not be aware of the problem until it becomes disabling.

    Proving your Paisley accident at work claim

    Repetitive injuries have long been accepted as a valid reason to claim compensation. However, if you have been diagnosed as suffering from one of these conditions, you should not assume that you have a good chance of making a successful claim.

    To win your claim, you will need to be able to link your injuries to your working environment – a challenge for even the most experienced lawyers. The court will demand absolute proof, and this means that if you cannot establish a link, you will have little chance of receiving compensation.

    At Accident Advice Helpline, our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you get the evidence you need to build a compelling case for compensation. They will arrange for you to attend a medical examination so that a doctor can report on the link between your injuries and your workplace duties, and help you to gather risk assessments, training records, accident book entries and other documentation that may prove that your employer failed to protect you from harm.
