Hernia Injury At Work: Can You Claim?

How To Claim Compensation For A Hernia Injury At Work

Hernia injuries come in many different forms – the most common are due to a hole or weakness in the abdomen muscle.

If you are required to handle heavy objects at work your hernia injury could have been caused in full or due in part to the work practice – so you might have a claim for compensation from your employer.

Hernia’s can occur sometimes due to a hereditary weakness. To win a claim for compensation your solicitor would need to show your employer was negligent and that negligence caused your injury. Your solicitor will be able to evaluate whether your employer was negligent, but a medical expert must evaluate whether your hernia injury was caused by that negligence.
