RSI injuries and Accident Advice Helpline


RSI injuries are responsible for over 4.7 million days worth of labour being lost per year in the workplace here in the UK alone. Sustaining an RSI that has an adverse effect on all aspects of your life can be quite debilitating, and if your employer is responsible for that injury, then you’re perfectly within your rights to claim for compensation, and here at Accident Advice Helpline we will be more than pleased to help.

The effects of RSIs

Most RSIs (Repetitive Strain Injuries) are transitional; they are not permanent, and with the right treatment can be cured. However, in some instances they can have a more permanent effect on your quality of life, and this is as aspect that needs to be taken into consideration when you’re talking to your injury claim lawyer.

Different types of RSI

There are many different types of RSI and the type of injury you sustain will, in most instances, relate to the nature of your occupation. For example, if you are employed on the factory floor, the RSI injuries you could suffer include things like:

  • Vibration white finger
  • Whole body vibration
  • Rotator cuff injury
  • Industrial deafness
  • Back injury

If however you’re employed in a clerical capacity, the types of RSI injuries you can sustain include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis elbow
  • BlackBerry thumb
  • Back or neck injury

Whilst back and neck injuries are often related to manual handling injuries incurred in factories rather than offices, they are also quite prevalent in office environments too, in relation to poor ergonomics.

The employer’s responsibility to mitigate RSI injuries

Your employer is responsible for providing a safe working environment and should carry out risk assessments and mitigate any hazards, and where appropriate, supply appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).

Anyone picking up RSI injuries in the workplace for which they believe their employer to be responsible, is legally and morally entitled to seek compensation and should contact us here at Accident Advice Helpline, and we will be pleased to discuss your case with you and help you to launch a personal injury claim if appropriate.

The key factors that validates any compensation claim

There are four key factors to be aware of that need to be considered in order to establish whether or not your claim is a valid one.

  • The blame for the injury must be attributable to your employer
  • The nature of the injury must warrant raising a claim; minor injuries such as cuts and bruises for example, do not count
  • You will require medical proof of the injury
  • The injury must have been sustained within the past three years
