    Where to get RSI compensation advice

    RSI will be a familiar term to many people, especially those who have experienced the condition for themselves. The letters stand for repetitive strain injury, and as the name might reveal to you, it refers to a condition where pain is experienced through certain repeated movements in the hands, wrists and arms. It may also progress and affect the neck and shoulders. Suffice to say, there are people who have every right to find RSI compensation advice if they are affected by a condition such as this.

    The symptoms experienced can be mild at first, but they can get progressively worse over time. Since every employer must do everything they can to ensure their employees can work without fear of harming their health, it is vital to make sure they risk-assess your work if you have experienced symptoms of RSI. They should make adjustments wherever they can to help alleviate the symptoms.

    Do you have a chance to claim?

    If you have experienced RSI and had it properly diagnosed, you should go to your employer for assistance. If they refuse or neglect to consider your working environment and how it could be improved in order to reduce your symptoms, you may have a chance to claim compensation.

    The important thing to note about RSI is that it can affect you in other ways as well. For instance, the numbness, tingling and pain felt in the hands and fingers can often mean you cannot do other things you would normally do without incident. This could have problems for the future if you can’t reduce the symptoms now.

    Seeking expert advice

    If you do want to find out whether compensation could be possible, it makes sense to go to a company that has expertise in dealing with these specific cases. Fortunately, Accident Advice Helpline has a number of lawyers who have already successfully concluded a number of claims regarding RSI injuries.
