Repetitive Strain Claims

If you are suffering a work-related repetitive strain injury, you may be able to make a claim against your employer.

Imperium Law are experts at successfully settling repetitive strain injury claims. We can get you the compensation you deserve.

Repetitive strain injury (RSI) can be caused by repetitive work tasks carried out for prolonged periods of time. If you have developed an injury because of your job, you could be entitled to make a claim against your employer.

There are a wide range of RSI disorders which can be caused through work-related activity.

Disorders include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Tendinitis.
  • Tennis or golfers elbow.
  • Focal dystonia.
  • Radial tunnel syndrome.
  • Cubital tunnel syndrome.
  • DeQuervain’s syndrome.
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome.

What causes a repetitive strain injury?

Improper tool use, typing, heavy lifting and incorrect posture while sitting for prolonged periods can all lead to RSI. For example workers who have to type and use computers excessively are known to develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

Employers should assess all workplace risks to identify problem areas and implement changes to protect workers. If you work doing a repetitive job then it is your employer’s responsibility to implement changes, such as the use of more ergonomic equipment to help reduce or prevent the onset of injury.

If your employer has failed to keep you safe from injury you could be due compensation. To find out if you have a valid claim call us on 0800 633 5730.

Who is at risk of developing RSI?

  • Construction workers.
  • Carpenters.
  • Assembly line workers.
  • Food preparation workers
  • Typists and anyone heavily involves in typing and writing.

If your job involves an excessive and repetitive activity, your employer should make sure you take regular breaks.

If you have suffered an injury caused by the negligence of your employer, you could be due a payout.
