However, before you start making claims, it’s imperative that you be diagnosed for the condition. This is the first step since there can’t be a claim even if you suspect that you suffer from the condition. A doctor must examine you and document the results of tests or diagnosis that is carried out on you. You will also need to provide your solicitor with enough information which for them to pursue compensation on your behalf. If you posted regular reports in your employers report books, it really helps getting a copy of those records. Provide the attorney with information such as the kind of tools which you use, for how long and the length of breaks, if any. All these evidence will help speed up your claim.
