Repetitive strain injury
One of the things that we can help you claim compensation for is Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). This is an injury which is caused by repetitive movements or overuse of a piece of equipment. It typically effects the nerves, tendons and muscles of the upper body, including the elbow, wrist, hands, arms, neck and shoulders.
The main symptoms of Repetitive Strain Injury include:
- Tenderness or pain
- Tingling stiffness
If you develop any of these symptoms, then you may be entitled to personal injury compensation.
Help with compensation in Chelmsford
We are always on hand to offer our expert help with claiming compensation for Repetitive Strain Injury. However, you will need to meet the requirements for claiming compensation in order for us to do so.
In order to be eligible for personal injury compensation, you must have been injured by someone else. In the case of Repetitive Strain Injury, this would normally be your employer, who will have acted in such a way as to cause your injury.
For example, they may not have provided you with the correct equipment, not given you enough rest breaks to prevent injury, or failed to maintain equipment in a safe way, leading to your RSI.
You will also need to have visited a medical professional and had your RSI officially diagnosed if you want to make a claim, because you will obviously need to prove that you have the condition and this is the only real way of confirming it.
In the vast majority of cases, you will need to file your claim for personal injury compensation no more than 3 years to the day from the time of your injury, so you will need to ensure you get in touch with us before that deadline if we are to help you get the compensation you deserve.
