If you need help with an RSI personal injury claim, then this article will be of interest. We are Accident Advice Helpline; we are one of the nation’s favourite injury claim lawyers, and RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury) is one of the categories of injury that we specialise in.
RSIs can have serious consequences
An RSI personal injury can affect both your working life and your social life too. Most injuries of this nature are temporarily and curable, with early and correct medical intervention. But some injuries (like back injury for example), can leave you with a weakness that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.
Cases of RSI personal injury are more prevalent than many people realise. Take a look at the following statistics:
- 1 out of every 50 workers on average suffers as RSI at some stage in their lives
- More than 448,000 workers currently have some form of RSI personal injury
- One in every three computer operators exhibits the early signs of RSI
- Each year 4.7 million working days are lost due to RSIs
- On average six people per day are forced to find alternative employment because of an RSI
You have every right to expect to be able to carry out your work duties without having to register an RSI personal injury claim. But your employer may have been in some way negligent:
- Not carrying out necessary risk assessments
- Not issuing the correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment )
- Not offering appropriate training
- Failing to disseminate information
If any or all of the above circumstances are applicable, you have both a legal and moral right to launch a claim for compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you to do so.
