Claiming compensation or a repetitive strain injury
Repetitive strain injury is a term used to describe injurie to the nerves, tendon, muscles etc. which is caused by overuse of the area of the body that is affected. In most case, repetitive strain injury affects the hands and arms, but it can be found in other parts of the body too.
Commonly, repetitive strain injury is caused by the work process. For example, someone who works in an office, typing 8 hours a day is very prone to developing the condition in their hands.
When can I claim?
You can only claim compensation for RSI if you are able to prove that it was caused by someone else’s negligence usually, this means that your employer has not done enough to provide you with equipment and working practices that minimize the risk of RSI, but it could also be possible to seek compensation from a company who have manufactured a faulty product that has led to the condition.
How do I claim?
Before you can claim compensation for Repetitive Strain Injury, you will need to prove that you actually have the condition. This is easily enough done by visiting a doctor or specialist who should have no problem diagnosing you with RSI if you are in fact suffering from it.
You will also need to provide some kind of proof that your RSI is caused by someone or something other than yourself.
If you can do both of these things, we could help you to claim compensation to help you get over your injuries without suffering any financial loss.
