Dislocations happen most frequently when you slip or fall – particularly if you are working at height or manoeuvring heavy weights. This can cause injuries which can lead to permanent health issues. The most common dislocation injury compensation claims originate due to a lack of health and safety protection at work or inadequate instructions about tasks. In such cases, a claim for dislocation injury compensation can be made against an employer.
It is essential that you seek professional medical assistance after dislocating any part of your body, as dislocation has the potential to obstruct blood flow. You may have also sustained a fracture which you are unaware about due to the pain experienced from the dislocation. No amount of dislocation injury compensation can make up for a lifelong disability which could have been avoided with timely medical assistance.
Making a Dislocation Injury Compensation Claim
Except in extreme cases, where your dislocation injury has been caused by medical negligence – for example, by a chiropractor – a dislocation injury compensation claim is made to the Injuries Board Ireland. The claim is supported by your medical notes and a copy of any entry in an employer´s “Accident Report Book” or other relevant documentation.
You are also entitled to claim special damages for any out of pocket expenses you may have incurred due to your injury or loss of earnings. Future loss of income can also be claimed when you may be away from your employment for a protracted period of time, and an experienced solicitor will be able to advise you on how to maximise the value of your claim.
A solicitor will also be the best person to suggest the appropriate course of action should your employer – or other negligent party – deny that they were responsible for your injuries or claim that you contributed to your injuries by your own actions. Litigation would be required in these instances, as it would if the Injuries Board Ireland produced an inadequate assessment of your dislocation injury compensation claim.
