How to find out if you might be eligible for personal injury compensation for injury at work
Just imagine if you have been in the same job for years, let’s say you are a librarian and you have built up a great rapport with the other workers, people come into the library and ask for you especially and basically, it is a very important part of your life.
One day, the head librarian retires and a new one starts. You are looking forward to having the same working relationship with your new boss. However, the new boss wants to make a good impression and so wants everything done at once.
The library is expecting a visit from the mayor and mayoress. The boss wants everything perfect as the library is going to be in the local newspaper. She decides that the shelves are too full and it makes the library look untidy. She resolves to store a lot of the stock in the stockroom at the back just for the visit. She orders workers to start moving the books. When it comes to your duties there are no trolleys left to transport the books to the stockroom. She says that you will have to carry them so you carry them in small piles.
You twist your ankle
The boss is looking at her watch and tapping her foot, her face is getting redder and she warns you that you had better start carrying much bigger piles of books or there will be trouble. She loads your arms up so that you can’t see where you are going. You trip over a pile off books which are to be put in the stockroom. You twist your ankle and sprain your wrist.
