Gateshead accident claim

A lawyer and their client shaking hands.

Not all accidents are visible. When employers look at reports of injuries they expect to see the injuries. This isn’t always possible as some injuries are internal and are linked to the muscles and joints.

The prime example of an invisible injury is repetitive strain injury, or RSI. Regulations are in place at every place of work to minimise any chance of an employee developing the condition but unfortunately not all employers abide by those guidelines. This could be the basis of a Gateshead accident claim.

What is a repetitive strain injury?

Repetitive Strain Injury is a condition that develops when your body is doing the same movements over and over every single day. By conducting the same movements repetitively you are effectively straining the muscles or joints that are being overworked.

The strain is often found in individuals who work in offices or other administration roles. The regulations put in place to help minimise any effects of the condition include taking regular breaks from that one particular task and having all the correct equipment.

RSI and a Gateshead accident claim

With a case for repetitive strain injury there is a maximum of up to 3 years in order to make a claim. The 3-year limit is in place to allow time to investigate whether the condition came from the place of work or from another area.

RSI is a developing condition so the effects of it may not be felt at first but found later on. Regardless of when the condition is discovered there is still the possibility of being able to make a Gateshead accident claim.

Repetitive strain injury can be a painful ordeal to go through. It may even result in taking some time off work. If this is what you are going through then may be a Gateshead accident claim waiting.

Developing this condition is something that can be avoided and the regulations are instigated in order to enforce it. If these regulations are being ignored then you could make a claim against your employer.
