According to recent reports by the health and safety executive, there are thousands of cases that are related to upper limb disorders. These cases include a wide range of work related complaints that include shoulder, neck, hand, elbow, wrist and fingers. Most of this is brought about by continuous repetitive or strenuous activities. According to the law if a person is affected by a work-related upper limb disorder an employer could be held liable especially if they failed to control and manage the risks related to the condition effectively. Upper limb disorders can be brought forward if symptoms such as tenderness, swelling, weakness, stiffness, cramps, aches and pains show up. An upper limb disorder can only be diagnosed as work-related upper limb disorder if there is enough proof that it was caused by the activities and processes that one does at work. Licensed and professional doctors do these kinds of diagnosis. There are various occupations where the work related upper limb disorders are most common such as; carpentry, construction, gardening, assembly line working, keyboard operation and a few other.
Reasons why you may claim:
If the employer failed to properly protect the individual from the condition that they have acquired because of working for them then the employer is completely liable for compensation claims. This is because the law requires the employer to protect their workers from harm, especially if it is avoidable. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 both stipulate what the employer must do to control and manage the risks that are linked to work related upper limb disorders. These instructions include a full risk assessment of the environment of work and identifying the probable dangers. When they do not follow all the rules required to the letter this is when they could be considered liable.
These symptoms might start off as mild but might become very problematic especially if they are not taken care of at the early stages. Eventually these symptoms may become so intense that the affected person might have problems doing simple day-to-day tasks. Sometimes treatments like resting the affected limbs or having physiotherapy sessions can end up not being enough so the person affected might have to stop working in the same job because of pain. The compensation can help cover the medical bills and treatment, as well as other monetary, social and emotional losses.
How to win cases:
In order to be able to win such cases you will need a solicitor. To start off with a solicitor it is vital to understand the no win no fee agreement, the no win no fee upper limb disorder claims start once the person affected agrees with his/her solicitor a Conditional Fee Agreement. This agreement explains that the lawyer will only be paid once they successfully win your claim. Selecting an injury specialist solicitor helps you prioritise your recovery, and you will also be sure that there will be nothing that is required to be paid later. When claiming a work related upper limb disorder it is important to make sure you have the answers to all the questions that you might have and find the answers that other potential claimants might have, it is also important to compare injury solicitors and find out how much they might charge you if they get to win your case. All these information is vital since making the right decision often depends on having the right information
