When can a worker’s compensation injury claim can be made?
A worker’s compensation injury claim can be made when you have suffered an accident at work in the last three years which could have been avoided by your employer. If you have been injured in your workplace and you think your employer should have done more to make sure your accident didn’t happen you should consider making a compensation claim.
What types of worker’s compensation injury claims can be made?
There is a huge range of worker’s compensation injury claims covering all kinds of workplace incidents. Some of the most common claims cover:
- Slips, trips and falls in the workplace
- Faulty or poorly maintained equipment causing injury
- Industrial injuries such as white finger caused by vibration tools
- Back injuries and manual handling injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome and repetitive strain injury
- Injuries caused by incorrect use of equipment or lack of training on how to use equipment
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we routinely deal with these injuries and many more.
