Repetitive strain injury compensation claims

Repetitive strain injury is extremely common nowadays – in 2006, there were nearly half a million sufferers in the UK. The most frequent causes of RSI are conditions in the workplace, particularly sitting at desks for long periods of time using computers. These types of injuries can be caused in numerous other ways as well, such as working on a production line and doing the same action over and over.

The first thing you should do if you think you may have a repetitive strain injury is to stop whatever action is causing it. Then rest is needed to let the injury repair.

Your employer has a duty to make sure you are not injured at work, whether in a one of accident or developing some other some of conditions through your working environment. If they fail in this legal responsibility, they may well have to face repetitive strain injury compensation claims.

These injuries are avoidable by very simple methods, like taking regular breaks from the work causing it, or making sure that your position is such that you are not straining any muscles or other soft tissues. It is your employers duty to put these things in place.

As with all personal injury claims, repetitive strain injury compensation claims need proof that someone else was to blame to be successful, and you should make sure you see a doctor with your injury.
