Workplace accidents are unfortunately not uncommon. Many people suffer incidents in their working environment every year. From industrial deafness to construction accidents, these injuries differ dramatically. This post will take a look at one of the most popular workplace accidents, which is repetitive strain injury, otherwise shortened to RSI.
What is RSI? This is essentially damage to your tissues, thus you will experience pain in your muscles, nerves or tendons if you have this type of injury. It is caused through overuse or misuse, and therefore individuals can experience this type of injury in a number of different working environments. From extensive use of the phone to manual heavy lifting, the scenarios vary. Nonetheless, one of the most common reasons for RSI is overuse of the computer. Individuals who sit at the disk all day can experience tissue damage.
If you suffer RSI because of your working environment you will be entitled to compensation. Nonetheless, before you can think about making a claim you will need to a see a medical professional. They will have to diagnose you with RSI for your solicitor to have any chance of making a successful case.
Once you have done this you should then get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. If you ring our legal helpline you will speak to one of our experts. They will answer any questions you have regarding personal injury claims, this includes providing specific details in relation to your case – i.e. whether you have a good chance of claiming, and if so, how much compensation you could be entitled to.
