There is no single test to check for RSI as the symptoms can be caused by a number of things, including repetitive, strenuous work. A claim can be successful if the RSI was a result of negligence by an employer.
RSI can be caused by many types of work, ranging from the repeated use of vibrating tools or heavy manual lifting to using a computer for extended periods or work that involves frequent repetitive movements, such as operating machinery. RSI can even be caused by cradling the phone in your neck for long periods.
Anyone diagnosed with a repetitive strain injury caused by their working conditions may be able to make a RSI claim. Comprehensive guidance on the dangers of RSI and how to prevent it has been available to employers since 1990.
Every employer has a duty to minimise the risk of injury to staff, so if your job puts you at risk of RSI then your employer must take steps to reduce the possibility of injury or harm. This could mean giving frequent breaks or alternating tasks so you do not spend a long time in one position.
You have a right to instruct strain injury solicitors to make a claim if your employer failed to keep you safe in the workplace and you should not worry about being treated unfavourably. Many clients we have helped have been motivated both by the need to achieve recognition and recompense for their injuries and to improve conditions for their co-workers.
Access Legal knows how painful any RSI can be and how it can affect your daily life. We understand the importance of dealing with claims quickly and sympathetically.
