    Accident claims in Peterhead

    Golf elbow and tennis elbow sound like conditions you’d expect to pick up while playing one of the respective games, right? Not at all; both conditions describe a form of tendinitis – a swelling/inflammation of the tendons, in this case around the elbow. While both tennis and golf enthusiasts can develop the conditions, it is far more common for people to develop this sort of injury while at work.

    The type of workers who typically develop this type of condition, which is a form of repetitive strain injury, typically work in occupations that involve repetitive physical activity. Assembly line workers, warehouse staff, pickers and packers, gardeners, removal workers and labourers are among the workers who can be prone to tendinitis.

    Employers can do their bit to reduce the chances of their workers developing the condition. In fact, they have a legal responsibility to do so. If a worker were to develop the symptoms of tendinitis, or any other repetitive strain injury for that matter, the injured party might well be able to take some form of accident claims in Peterhead action, to claim compensation.
