A repetitive strain injury is a soft tissue injury caused by the repetition of an action or trauma. If you have developed a repetitive strain injury as a result of your work, you could be entitled to compensation. RSI is a common injury that numerous people in several different job roles develop. It can cause severe pain, numbness, weakness, tingling and a loss of dexterity - making even everyday tasks difficult. If you believe that you have an RSI claim, our Leeds lawyers could help you win the compensation you deserve.
Claiming For An RSI
Repetitive strain injuries can stem from several different work-place actions, including using a computer or holding a phone for prolonged periods of time, heavy manual lifting, repeated use of vibrating machinery or equipment and even working in a poorly designed workspace. Any repeated movement of a certain muscle can cause lasting damage and that’s why your employer must have guidelines in place to protect you from physical harm. It is your employer’s responsibility to provide you with protective clothing and equipment, where necessary, and allow you frequent breaks from the repeated motion.
