Working in a sedentary job role means you are at risk of developing repetitive strain injury. Although it may not be noticeable at first the pain develops over time and soon it becomes difficult to carry out everyday tasks in your job position. In any workplace which is dominated by these types of work positions there are guidelines in place so that the chances of RSI developing are minimal. However any injury solicitor in Gosport will tell you that not all employers adhere to those guidelines.
Keeping RSI at bay
Over time, the repetitive motions of a sedentary job role can cause strain to your joints and muscles. In order to avoid the muscles seizing up, the set health and safety practices say you are required to conduct another activity to break up the monotonous pattern and take regular breaks if you’re sat at a computer.
In an era dominated by tight deadlines many employers do not abide by these guidelines and are actually putting workers like you at risk. An injury solicitor in Gosport will verify that there are many cases involving RSI which could have been avoided if the employer acted in the interest of the employees.
An injury solicitor in Gosport and claiming on RSI
As RSI is not always detectable in the early stages of its development, which is why there is a time limit of up to three years from diagnosis to make a claim for the injury. Your injury solicitor in Gosport can make necessary investigations into the nature of the injury and then compile a case against the responsible party.
Most of the work is conducted by the injury solicitor but they will stay in touch to sign documents or to update you on the progress of the case.Open Claim Calculator
