If your job involves completing a physical task over and over again, you need to be aware of repetitive strain injury symptoms in Sheffield. It doesn’t matter if you’re working on a building site, on an assembly line or doing data input in an office, if repetitive tasks are part of your typical working day, you should be on the lookout for any symptoms of repetitive strain injury.
If you can catch the condition early, there will be a much better chance that you will be able to do something to stop it progressing.
Typical repetitive strain injury symptoms in Sheffield
If you start to experience any of the following repetitive strain injury symptoms in Sheffield and you do work in a job that requires you to complete repetitive physical actions, you would be well advised to seek medical advice as soon as you can: cramp, sharp or dull pains, pins and needles, stiffness, soreness, weakness or numbness.
Although any of these symptoms by themselves or a few together won’t automatically mean you have developed some form of repetitive strain injury, it will certainly be worth getting yourself checked out, and a medical opinion will be needed if you are to claim compensation.
You’ll be at risk of developing repetitive strain injury symptoms in Sheffield if your job involves using vibrating equipment, standing or sitting with poor posture for most of the day, working in cold or extreme environments or failing to take regular breaks while doing any of these activities.
As it will be the responsibility of your employer to make sure that you are not at risk of developing repetitive strain injury symptoms while carrying out your duties, there will be a chance that you might be able to sue it if you did and you were in a position to prove that your condition came about as a result of your employer’s negligence.
The amount that you could stand to win will be very much dependent on the severity of your injuries, but if your condition means that you will not be able to work in the same job again or has any other long-term effects, you could be looking at a very substantial pay-out indeed.
