Musculoskeletal injuries are those which are caused by putting too much strain on our bodies. Athletes – particularly aging ones – find they frequently suffer from injuries to tendons, ligaments and joints from the constant exertion of training and participating in sports. However, when these injuries are caused to a non-athlete by the negligence of another person, it can lead to a claim for musculoskeletal injury compensation.
Risk factors which cause musculoskeletal injuries can be found in almost every type of work. Employers have a duty of care under the Health, Safety and Welfare at Work Act to prevent such injuries by providing a safe environment in which to work and training on how to work safely. Where an employer fails in his responsibility, and you suffer a musculoskeletal injury as a result, you are entitled to make a musculoskeletal injury compensation claim.
Making a Musculoskeletal Injury Compensation Claim
A claim for musculoskeletal injury compensation is usually made to the Injuries Board Ireland and is accompanied by your doctor´s notes explaining in greater depth about your musculoskeletal injury. Nonetheless, it is still a complicated procedure to complete and submit the application form to the Injuries Board for musculoskeletal injury compensation. The best way to ensure that you receive fair and adequate amount of musculoskeletal injury compensation is to obtain the help of an experienced personal injury claims solicitor.
When you have sustained a musculoskeletal injury, you may find that you are unable to work for a considerable amount of time. Even though the injury may have developed over a period of years, it will have now got to the point where it is too painful to do many things, and your doctor will have probably prescribed avoiding whichever activity caused the musculoskeletal injury in the first place. Your solicitor will have to factor into your musculoskeletal injury claim an amount to cover a period of rehabilitation and potential loss of earnings if your employer is unable to provide alternative employment.
