Compensation for wrist injuries from office work

Although the office is one area that we wouldn’t usually associate with injuries, it is one area of the workplace which does have the potential to leave you with serious injuries if you don’t take your safety seriously. In general the majority of office jobs require work in front of a computer and this can lead to a whole host of potential injuries including strained and damaged wrists which can be injured through over-use or improper technique.

It’s the responsibility of any employer to ensure that all office workers have access to work in a safe environment and this includes providing them with the training and resources that they need to type safely. If you have been injured in the workplace through negligence of this type, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. 

Whose negligence might have led to this injury?

In general any injuries which are sustained in the workplace could be caused by the direct negligence of an employer and this is the person who you may look to make a compensation claim against. If your employer has failed to provide you with an adequate working environment, training or the equipment that you need to type safely – this can include providing you with breaks when necessary – then you could be eligible to consider a compensation claim.

Where might an accident such as this occur?

Depending on how your wrist injury is sustained, there are a number of different circumstances where you could consider making a claim and these include:

  • Injuries sustained through typing using the incorrect motion
  • Injuries sustained through using a poor keyboard
  • Injuries caused by heavy lifting
  • Injuries caused during slips and trips
