    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Repetitive strain compensation


    A repetitive strain injury is exactly what the name suggests, and injury caused by a repetitive action. They are very common with workers who sit at a keyboard all day, or work with machinery that requires the same movement again and again. Your employer is supposed to make sure you take regular breaks from such actions, and do all they can to prevent this, or any other type of injury. If they fail in this legal duty, you may be able to make a claim for repetitive strain compensation.

    Are you entitled to repetitive strain compensation?

    The first thing to do if you think you may have a repetitive strain injury is stop the action that is causing it. Most injuries of this type will heal given time, but with some of them, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, surgery can be needed if it is severe. Others can cause permanent damage, and restricting how bad they get, can help a great deal.

    If you have developed any sort of pain that you think might be this type of injury, you should talk to Accident Advice Helpline to see if you are entitled to repetitive strain compensation.

    The timescale for claiming repetitive strain compensation

    For most personal injury claims there is a time scale of making your claim within three years after the accident. Repetitive strain injuries come under the umbrella of industrial illness though, so you have three years from the date of being diagnosed to start your claim. This is because industrial illnesses of all kinds tend to happen over time, rather than as a one off incident.
