Compensation Claims for Repetitive Strain Injury

The account for more than 50% of injuries at work is repetitive strain injury. This may happen to competitive athletes, assembly-line workers, artists and electricians, in fact, any one who has to perform the same king of movement over and over again for a long period becomes eligible for this kind of injury. The root of this injury comes from the tendons and the muscles that become inflamed because of over-use. Mostly this injury affects wrists, hands, elbows, neck and shoulders.

If you are also suffering from repetitive strain injury in your office, you should make sure to have a chat with your company’s employer or the health director regarding this and ask them for providing you with the measures to improve the condition and to eliminate the factors that are leading to this injury in the employees of the office. Even if after talking no measures have been taken by the employers and you are continuing to suffer from the injury, you can consider compensation claims for repetitive strain injury.
The process of filing a compensation claim for injuries at work is quite different from other kinds of claims and insurances. When you get injured at work and that too not because of your fault, you have to make expenses on the medical treatment, you suffer pain and agony, and all this because your employers were negligent towards your health and safety. You must seek a solicitor regarding this, who will offer you an expert advice on what are your rights as an injured party. They have studied a large number of similar cases and have a hands-on experience regarding what should be done and how it should be done in your particular case. The employers need to understand that their prime responsibility is towards their employees, to provide with a safe setting so that they can work efficiently and be productive.

With the increase in the cases of repetitive strain injuries, there is also an increased need for discussing workplace injuries. The number of employees who submit lawsuits against the employers is quite uncertain and unclear, but one thing is clear that more and more companies are working to take preventive actions against these types of legal activities, instead of paying for the medical bills incurred by the workers’ treatments. It is a clear law that if the employees get injured due to their nature of work, they are entitled to receive a fair amount of compensation for the injuries.
