Soft Tissue Injury Compensation Claim
Anyone who has suffered from soft tissue injuries at his or her place of work either due to the negligence of the employer or a co-worker, may be eligible for compensation which will be dependent on the damages one has suffered. There are basically 4 main types of soft tissues which can get damaged as a result of workplace related exercises, these include the connective tissues, the nervous tissues, epithelial tissues and muscular tissues.
It is also worth noting at this point that soft tissue injuries can happen in a variety of working environments such as a construction site, an office or even a factory. People get sprains, bruises and strains from different kinds of accidents such as falls, slips and trips. These types of injuries occur to the knees, ankles and lower back. There are also other types of muscular-skeletal disorders which are mainly caused by excessive repetition of specific physical actions or activities which can and do lead to permanent damage of other soft tissues. This includes disorders such as Bursitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tendonitis and Vibration White Finger amongst a host of other disorders.
For any soft tissue injury claim to succeed and be sustainable, it must be shown that a soft tissue injury did actually occur and that the said injury was caused through the negligence of a third party. It is usually quite simple and easy to prove that one has sustained soft tissue injuries as this can be done through medical records. The difficult part though is usually to prove that the injuries were caused by the negligent actions of a third party; and this is where our expert solicitors come in quite handy. Our team of experts will assess your claim for the soft tissue injury claim, help and assist you to gather evidence which will be used to show third party negligence. A solicitor will also go through the claim and advise you as a client on whether pursuing the soft tissue compensation claim is worth while.
The amount of compensation you are entitled to does greatly depend on your personal circumstance. A solicitor will help you calculate the overall value of your claim by considering how severe your tissue injury is depending on factors such as sex, age and general state of health prior to the accident that damaged your soft tissues. The effect the injury has in the quality of life you are currently leading will also be taken into consideration, as well as your inability to perform daily tasks which you were previously undertaking. Any psychological effect the accident may have in your life such as confidence issues will also be taken into account when calculating soft tissue injury claims.
It is also possible to recover any financial costs which can be directly attributable to the soft tissue injury that you suffered. These costs can include a variety of expenses such as additional transport costs that you incurred because you were unable to drive yourself, expenses incurred as you sought medical attention and any loss of income such as pension contributions and overtime can also be included in your claim.
