3 jobs that can cause long term injuries – ask our personal injury lawyer in St Annes on Sea
If you’ve been working the same job long enough, there is a risk you might suffer long term injuries. Not all jobs are the same though and some come with a higher level of risk than others.
If you are affected by such injury you will most likely be entitled to compensation in which case it is recommended you contact our personal injury lawyer in St Annes on Sea. Why St Annes on Sea?
Well, it is a beautiful seaside resort located south of Blackpool. The town is renowned all over the world for golf and has 4 links and courses. But it is also home to professional personal injury lawyers.
But let’s look at some of the jobs that are most likely to cause long term injuries and why:
Even though it might seem like a non-hazardous type of job, a hotel receptionist and any other job that requires people to stand up on their feet for a long time (especially without much movement) can cause permanent injuries such as chronic lower back pain.
Other unpleasant results from standing up for a long period include swollen feet and joints and poor blood circulation.
Yet another occupation that looks harmless. But computers are usually the cause for one of the most common types of injuries – the carpal tunnel syndrome. It is usually associated with numbness of the thumb, the index or the ring finger.
Computers also put a lot of strain on your eyes and might deteriorate vision. Back and neck injuries are also possible and they are usually the result of bad posture when working at an uncomfortable work station. If you suffer from such an injury, you should call a personal injury lawyer in St Annes on Sea and find out if you qualify to claim compensation.
If you have been near a construction site you know that the level of noise is usually pretty high. If you are a construction worker, you are most likely to be hearing this constant loud noise all day long.
Without the proper protection, this can result in serious hearing loss. If you haven’t been provided with noise isolating headphones by your employer, you will most likely be able to claim compensation.
