Repetitive strain injury
Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is a collective term used to describe a number of medical conditions caused by repeated use of a particular joint in the body, usually during the course of employment. Another term sometimes used to describe certain of these conditions is Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD). 

This type of injury occurs when the same movement of the same joint is repeated over a period and causes damage to muscles, nerves, tendons and other tissue. There are many separate medical conditions such as tenosynovitis, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, writers cramp, tennis elbow.

The condition may occur in upper or lower limb depending on the nature of the activity which has caused the injury. Areas commonly affected are wrists, hands, fingers, elbows, shoulders, neck, back. Symptoms can include numbness, tingling, pain, discomfort, burning or coldness, restricted movement, weakened grip. Depending on the severity of the injury the condition can affect both personal life and quite possibly employment.

This condition has become a major source of claims over recent years not only in heavy industry but in other areas because of the increasing use of computer keyboards.

Slip in Public House
Mrs C whilst walking towards the bar area slipped on the wet floor of a public house whilst walking towards the bar area. She fell awkwardly causing a complex fracture of her right wrist. The insurers denied liability alleging the floor was dry and that Mrs C was drunk and jumping on the dancefloor. Cooks obtained evidence refuting this and issued the claim at Court. Settlement was reached just prior to the trial when Mrs C was awarded £20,000.00 she said:
"I would just like to say thanks to the staff who have been first class explaining things to me all the way and keeping me informed."
