If I have an epicondylitis and tennis elbow case

Epicondylitis is a form of repetitive strain injury (RSI), but it's important to remember that RSI is only an umbrella term used to describe a group of musculo-skeletal disorders, not an actual disease.

These conditions are generally caused by repetitive movements or overuse, however, it is often difficult to prove conclusively that the condition was a result of your work. Establishing causation (linking the injury to the work environment) is crucial in these claims. A diagnosis of epicondylitis by your GP is no guarantee that a claim will succeed.

Recent changes to the law mean that the onus of positively proving that the employer was at fault has now shifted to the claimant in an industrial disease or injury claim. However, employers are still obliged to provide the correct equipment and training to ensure industrial diseases and injuries are prevented. If they obviously failed to do so, then we are more likely to be able to prove their negligence and causation and make a successful claim.
