Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are very often employed as a Tower Hamlets law firm in order to help clients to raise compensation claims for injuries they’ve sustained through no fault of their own. This presents no problem, given that we have our state-of-the-art website and our national free helpline service which give us the wherewithal to act as anyone’s local (virtual) injury claim law firm, wherever they may be the here in the UK.
Many of the types of injuries that we handle for our clients fall under the category of a repetitive strain injury (RSI). This covers injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff injury, and other injuries to various part of the body including arms, legs, neck and back.
Typical symptoms of repetitive strain injury
The term “repetitive strain injury” is generally used to describe a pain which manifests itself in the muscles, nerves and tendons brought about by repetitive body movements and overuse. It is also often referred to as work-related upper limb disorder or non-specific upper limb pain. Typical symptoms include:
- Muscle cramp;
- A numb feeling;
- Tenderness or discomfort/pain; and
- A tingling sensation.
Using a Tower Hamlets law firm for a repetitive strain injury claim
If you’re looking for a Tower Hamlets law firm to help you to launch a claim for a work-related repetitive strain injury, you’re in the right place. All work-related injuries, as well as other personal injuries, are our specialties, and we would be pleased to offer our help.
People are sometimes concerned about suing their employers for personal injury compensation. They might feel that (a) the employer might hold this against them in the future, and/or (b) the employer may not be able to afford to pay out a large sum of compensation, especially if we are talking about a small company.
In response to these concerns, the first thing of which you should be aware is that your employer owes you a duty of care to ensure that you are able to work in a safe environment, and that the tasks you are asked to perform will not injury your health. Secondly, all employers here in the UK must have employers’ liability insurance by law, and it is this insurance which pays out, not the employers themselves.
