Could you make a claim for RSI?
If you have been diagnosed with RSI then you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Why not speak to our compensation solicitor in Heywood today to find out more?
If you are unsure whether you have RSI or not, the first thing you ought to do is seek the advice of a medical professional.
RSI is the abbreviation for a condition known as “repetitive strain injury”. It is often caused as a result of keeping various body parts (specifically the arms or upper limbs) in a tense or motionless position for long periods of time. This can also be exacerbated by poor posture.
Types of RSI
Any experienced compensation solicitor in Heywood who specialises in personal injury claims will know that there are three main types of RSI:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome – The symptoms of this condition include pain and weakness in the hand and forearm. It is often caused as a result of repetitive manual acts, such as those experienced by factory workers or typists.
- De Quervain’s syndrome – The symptoms of this condition include pain and swelling of the wrist, usually on the side of the thumb. It is most often experienced by office workers (specifically those that spend long periods on a computer) but it is not limited to this category of workers. If you think you have this condition speak to a medical expert and a solicitor in Heywood as soon as possible to find out if you could make a claim.
- Trigger finger – Symptoms include pain and a popping of the affected digit. It is often experienced by workers who have spent time holding their hands in a gripping motion, specifically individuals who spent a lot of time with pneumatic drills.
Whatever type of RSI you have been diagnosed with, our expert solicitor in Heywood can help you make a claim to win the financial compensation you deserve as a result of your condition.
