    How to claim for RSI compensation

    Injuries in the workplace are a common issue and they often arise due to individuals failing to follow the correct health and safety procedures in place. All employers have a legal duty of care to follow regarding the health and safety of their employees in the workplace. One of the more common types of workplace injuries sustained is known as RSI. This usually happens in an office environment and the pain from this type of injury can lead to serious health issues.

    What causes RSI?

    Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is the term that we use to describe the damage to soft tissues from the result of a specific type of trauma. This type of injury is often associated with using computers at home or in the workplace, but there are several other causes for this injury. If you have suffered from RSI in the workplace, please call us at Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone and we may be able to help you to claim for financial injury compensation. Other types of working activities that may cause RSI are as follows:

    • Using vibrating tools
    • Cradling the telephone for extended period
    • Heavy manual lifting
    • Frequent repetitive movements

    RSI can lead to a very serious pain, and long-term effects including weakness and loss of dexterity may result.

    How to avoid RSI

    RSI usually results from particular working conditions, and these can be attributed to a lack of duty of care displayed by your employer. If you have concerns regarding your present working conditions, please speak to your employer now for some advice. You should not worry about any possible retaliation from your employer, because you are only trying to ensure that your co-workers do not suffer from the painful and detrimental effects associated with RSI. If your employer had followed the correct health and safety guidelines regarding the various working conditions that may result in RSI, you would not be suffering from this condition now.
