Personal injury compensation claims in Breckland are not just about accidents. If you are suffering from a health condition that has been caused by your occupation and you think that your employer is to blame then you may be able to start a personal injury claim. Here we tell you more.
Personal injury compensation claims in Breckland for workplace health problems
Going to work should not make you ill! Your employer has a duty of care to protect your health, safety and well-being whilst you are at work. If they have not done this, and you are suffering a health condition as a result, then you may be able to start a claim.
Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a typical example and features in many personal injury claims. As the name suggests it is caused by a worker repeating the same movement over and over again. Small areas of inflammation build up into a chronic condition which can be very painful and debilitating. Workers who spend their day on computers or on production lines are especially at risk and this is an occupational hazard that responsible employers should recognise and control.
If you suspect that you have a repetitive strain injury (most commonly in the hands and wrists) you should first obtain a proper diagnosis so go to your doctor. Then you can give us a call to discuss the possibility of a personal injury claim.
