Has a Gawun-Cae-Gurwen accident caused repetitive strain injury?
Although a Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen accident normally causes isolated, one-off injuries, in some cases, a prolonged Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen accident could cause some form of repetitive strain injury. Due to the nature of this type of injury, it is often caused in a workplace setting.
If your job role requires you to complete similar activities or actions over the course of a day, you may suffer a Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen accident or develop repetitive strain injury because of it. If, for example, you work on the checkout in a supermarket, you may spend hours at a time performing the same actions. The stress that this can put on your joints, your tendons and your muscles can cause repetitive strain injury to develop.
If you are suffering with this type of injury, it’s important to let your employers know. They may be able to vary your duties or allow you to take more regular breaks so that the injury repairs itself. Although it is possible for repetitive strain injuries to be healed, it can mean that you need to change your job role considerably.
However, if your employers fail to assist you, or insist that you perform tasks which cause or exacerbate this type of injury, they could be liable for the harm that you’ve suffered and you may be able to make a claim against them.
Whenever an employee is hurt at work, it is possible that the employer will be responsible. Although an employer isn’t responsible for every workplace accident, if they have caused or contributed to your Gwaun-Cae-Gurwen accident, you may want to make a complaint against them or seek compensation.
As a Gawun-Cae-Gurwen accident or an injury can affect your finances, many people find that obtaining compensation helps them to avoid getting into debt and enables them to maintain their lifestyle.
