Am I Eligible to Make a RSI Claim?
If you are suffering from an RSI due to a current or previous working environment, you could be able to claim financial compensation for medical fees, rehabilitation costs and general pain and suffering caused by the injury.
If you are unsure of whether you have a repetitive strain injury, consult your doctor. RSIs like vibration white finger are typically caused by the following working situations:
- heavy and extended use of vibrating equipment;
- repetitive overuse of particular muscles;
- bad posture or bad organisation of work area;
- extended working periods without breaks;
- carrying heavy loads on a regular basis;
Under UK employment law, your employer has a duty to minimise the health and safety risks to their employees as much as is reasonably possible. Thus they need to ensure you are provided with all the right protective equipment, and are provided with regular breaks.
If you suspect that a failure on the part of your employer was directly responsible for your development of a repetitive strain injury like vibration white finger, contact a solicitor as soon as possible to discuss a compensation claim.
Whether you suffer from vibration white finger or another form of repetitive strain injury, be it to your back, forearm, wrist, elbow or hands, if it is in any way related to your working environment contact Farleys to discuss a ‘no win, no fee’ compensation claim.
