Accident Advice Helpline — the RSI injury solicitors in Hagley local villagers often use
The injury solicitors in Hagley villagers use are sometimes asked to process personal injury claims for repetitive strain injury (RSI). This type of injury is normally associated with a person’s working rather than private life, although it can also be the result of a physical task that someone does in their spare time as a hobby, or their private working life, such as tennis elbow or housemaid’s knee.
The type of RSI that is seen most often in professional working life is carpal tunnel syndrome, an injury that a lot of secretaries used to sustain, and more recently anyone working with a keyboard, such as someone who uses a computer in their daily duties.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) manifests itself when the median nerve (a nerve which is located in the forearm and palm) gets squeezed or pressed in the wrist. In the case of typists, it is the resting of the wrist on the desk while typing that is to blame.
Most companies now issue their computer operators with special wrist rests to help to avoid the problem, but any repetitive operation that brings this pressure to bear on the wrist can cause CTS. If you’ve fallen foul of this condition due to your work and believe that your employer is liable, either because they haven’t informed staff, offered appropriate training or provided the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment), then you may have reason to sue them for injury compensation.
