    Claiming compensation for repetitive strain injury

    Repetitive strain injuries are amongst the most common injuries sustained by individuals in the workplace. They typically occur when the nervous and musculoskeletal systems are affected by the carrying out off repetitive or forceful tasks, and even by the vibration of various pieces of equipment, or being forced into uncomfortable positions for long periods of time.

    Claiming compensation for repetitive strain injury

    Claiming compensation for repetitive strain injury is something that you may be able to do if you have been injured through no fault of your own. For instance, an employer may not have given you enough breaks from a repetitive task, or your chair may have been poorly designed, causing you a great deal of pain.

    Time limits

    Unfortunately, there are time limits on making any sort of personal injury claim, which means that you need to act quickly if you want to make a claim. At present, you will need to make a claim within three years of developing RSI, or you will be barred from doing so.


    In most cases, in order to make a repetitive injury claim, you will need to have the condition officially diagnosed by a medical expert, so it is imperative that you see a doctor, not only so you can make a claim, but also so you can get access to the advice and treatment you need to recover from your injuries.
