RSI Claim

Thousands of people in the UK suffer from repetitive strain injury due to the kind of work they do. The injury can affect the life of the person and can even disable him for the rest of his life. His professional life may also be affected as the person may not be able to work. If you too have been suffering from this type of injury, you need to look into making an RSI claim with the help of an experienced Solicitor.

Health and safety in the workplace should be maintained by the employer, if they fail to provide you with the best working conditions, they will have to pay for their negligence. This injury is caused when there is excess strain on the muscles of the body and specially tendons, tissues and nerves while working. There are some physical jobs where a person has to make repetitive movements and may suffer these types of injuries as a result. When the same muscles are used for a prolonged period, pain starts occurring in them and it results in repetitive strain injury.

The body parts do not get enough time to recover and this is why the muscles can have a bit of fatigue. If the same continues to happen, the muscles start reacting and pain persists in them. If the situation does not improve, the damage can be very serious and can even lead to disability. You as an employee have the full right to work in the safe conditions. You can hire a Solicitor and make a claim against your employer as he has failed to provide you with safe conditions resulting in the injury.

If the employer has taken all the measures and you still get injured, there are chances that you will get compensation. You will need to prove that the employer was at fault and failed to provide you with good measures to prevent the injury. Your employer is to be blamed for your injury as he was responsible for taking care of you as you’re an employee of his company. Use the help of expert Solicitors in pursuing a RSI claim.
