Repetitive Strain Injuries
“According to the NHS, repetitive strain injuries are caused by repetitive movement or overuse of certain limbs or joints. Many of these injuries happen at work and they tend to affect the shoulders, arms, legs and neck. If you are suffering with a repetitive strain injury as a result of employer negligence, Lance Mason can help.”
What Kind Of Claim Can I Make?
There are several conditions that fall under the repetitive strain injury umbrella:
- Vibration white finger
- Miner’s beat knee
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow (epicodylitis)
These injuries can occur as a result of your employer failing to maintain appropriate health and safety standards in the workplace. Employers are legally obligated to take steps to minimise any potential hazards and those that suffer as a result of negligence can claim compensation. If you are unsure about whether or not you can make a claim, our experts will analyse your situation free of charge and assess the validity of your case.
What Do I Need To Make A Claim?
- Your first priority is to visit your GP; the doctor will diagnose your symptoms and explain the prognosis
- Make a note of when your symptoms worsen; if this tends to be while you are at work, this is a clear indication that the nature of your work is the root cause
- Make a note of any machinery you operate and obtain the details of any co-workers with similar symptoms
How Much Compensation Will I Get?
The compensation you may receive is dependent on the severity of your symptoms, the prognosis of your condition and any financial losses incurred. Each case is different, so call Lance Mason today for advice that is specific to your individual situation.
