Who typically gets rotator cuff injuries?
Rotator cuff injuries can occur suddenly and without warning. They are brought about by repetitively raising your arms above shoulder level. This can happen often with sportsmen and women – for example with tennis players when they serve, or javelin throwers or shot-putters when they train and compete. In these instances, claiming compensation is not normally an option, because these sports individuals realise that a rotator cuff injury is simply an acceptable risk of their chosen sport
Repetitive strain injury (RSI) in the workplace
But rotator cuff injury also happens to those who work in manual handling; whether it’s in a store, or a warehouse, or simply just moving things around in a factory. If the nature of your occupation regularly involves stowing and retrieving goods, to and from locations above shoulder height, and you sustain a rotator cuff injury, you could be entitled to claim for that injury under the umbrella of a repetitive strain injury (RSI) incurred in the workplace.
