1Wrist / Arm / Elbow / Shoulder InjurySuffering an injury to your wrist, arm, elbow or shoulder may not seem like the most catastrophic occurrence, and may not gain much sympathy unless the injury is severe and apparent. However, each of these areas is very important on a day to day basis. If, for example, you injure your wrist, simple daily tasks like making a cup of tea or driving can seem like an almost impossible and painful challenge, never mind the thought of going to work and struggling for an 8 hour shift day after day. You may well be entitled to help.
2Back injuryBack injuries tend to have no outward obvious appearance. However, for the sufferer it can be one of the most excruciating and painful experience’s they have endured. To make matters worse, recovery from these injuries can often take an exceptionally long time and can reoccur if not treated correctly, or if the treatment is not completed. This can inevitably lead to long periods of limited or no mobility meaning extended periods off work which in itself can be a depressing thought. In addition, there are worrying financial implications to consider. You need to find out if you are entitled to compensation?
3Chronic PainHaving Chronic Pain is a situation that nobody wishes to be in. it is a situation that is forced on suffers usually due to no fault of their own. The difference between acute pain and chronic pain is usually determined by time, any pain that last longer than 3-6 months is considered to be chronic however it can last far longer, even for life!
Chronic pain can manifest itself anywhere on the body, from back injury, neck or joint injury and in some case can result in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) which is very debilitating. Any injury from the slightest strain or trip can cause this condition and it is relatively not widely known by the medical or legal profession.
4Work InjuryWhen you are at work you have the right to work in a safe controlled environment. Employers have a legal obligation to look after you through a combination of health and safety training and providing all necessary safety equipment. If your employer does not adhere to this and an injury occurs they may well be liable. A work injury claim is essentially against your employers’ insurance company rather than against your employer personally. Claims resulting from a work injury can have the added advantage of highlighting safety shortcomings, and can help prevent your colleagues from suffering similar problems. If you have suffered a work injury a few simple questions will soon let you know if you are in a position to be compensated.
5Professional NegligenceBeing let down by a professional person can be one of the most worrying times in a person’s life. After all, you are making a claim against the likes of a solicitor or barrister who are in court on a daily basis, and this may well be the one of a few times that you have ever contemplated going to court yourself. Fortunately, all professionals are highly regulated and any form of breach of these regulations can usually be spotted through a paper trail.
