Do you need to make Torfaen repetitive strain injury claims?
Unlike some sudden accidents, repetitive strain injuries tend to occur because of repetitive movements the patient makes. If, for example, you work in an office and regularly use a computer, you could end up suffering from repetitive strain injury in your hands or wrists. This problem also affects cashiers or supermarket workers who serve customers and use tills for long periods of time.
Although little can be done to prevent sudden accidents from occurring, taking action can help to reduce the chance of people suffering from repetitive strain injuries. If you do work with a computer, for example, you can ensure that your chair is at the appropriate height and that the desk is big enough for you to work on as this can help to reduce the chance of you being injured.
If you’ve been forced to work in cramped or unsafe conditions and you’ve developed some form of repetitive strain injury, it’s possible that your employers could be held responsible for your injuries and you could make Torfaen repetitive strain injury claims against them. If you can provide that they caused or contributed to your injuries, it’s likely that your Torfaen repetitive strain injury claims will be successful and you could be awarded compensation.
Often, people suffering with this type of injury will try to battle through and continue going to work. However, this could potentially worsen your injury and you may be in an increased amount of pain. If you’re suffering from repetitive strain injury, it’s essential that you seek medical advice in order to help the injury to heal.
