Tendonitis Compensation


Tendonitis compensation

Tendonitis occurs when the tissues that connect your muscles to your bones become swollen and inflamed. It is commonly caused by overuse and repetitive movements, but can also develop as a result of trauma. If you suffer from diabetes, obesity or rheumatoid arthritis, you may be at an increased risk of developing this painful condition.

Which occupations can be affected by tendonitis?

Tendonitis comes in many forms, depending on the activities and the movements you have performed. Most cases of tendonitis are caused by workplace activities that involve excessive amounts of manual handling or repetitive movements such as twisting, where the wrist may suffer thousands of small strains every day. Cleaners, factory production workers and those who work at computers are most at risk of developing tendonitis.

Does my employer have a duty to protect against tendonitis injuries?

In the UK, employers are legally obliged to ensure their workers are adequately protected from injuries such as tendonitis. They must therefore perform risk assessments and advise their staff on the correct use of machinery and the importance of taking regular rest breaks. When employers fail to comply with health and safety rules, their injured employees may be entitled to make personal injury claims.

How can I make a tendonitis compensation claim?

If you have been diagnosed with tendonitis as a result of your work activities and can prove that your employer failed to take action to prevent your injury, you may be entitled to make a tendonitis compensation claim. With appropriate legal support, you may be able to receive a financial payout to compensate you for the physical and psychological distress caused by your injury.

Most tendonitis compensation claims can be processed by telephone, meaning that it is highly unlikely that you will need to attend court. In order to process your claim, you must have developed your injury within the last three years. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.
