Repetitive Strain Injury Claims
If you have suffered a repetitive strain injury at work you may be entitled to make a no win, no fee compensation claim.
Repetitive strain injuries are caused by repetitive movement and overuse, resulting in pain in the muscles nerves and tendons of the affected area. Carrying out the same movement or activity over a long period of time is a main cause of injury, often affecting people who carry out manual work or those who work with computers.
Conditions such as bursitis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome are all forms of repetitive strain injury, causing much pain and discomfort for those who suffer from them.
The symptoms of repetitive strain injuries can sometimes take months or even years to appear. Over time the problem can become more severe with pain being felt at the slightest movement, causing difficulty when performing the repetitive tasks which initially caused the injury.
The conditions themselves affect many in the construction injury through the prolonged use of vibrating equipment or time spent on a production line. Those who work in office environments are also at risk if they spend long periods of time sat in uncomfortable positions without regular breaks.
