If you have suffered a repetitive strain injury during the course of your employment you may be entitled to seek compensation if that injury was caused as a result of the negligence or breach of duty on the part of your employer.
Repetitive strain injury is a name used to describe different types of soft tissue, muscle and tendon injuries caused by repetitive physical work. It can affect any part of the body.
Typing is one of the most common ways to suffer repetitive strain injury especially if you do not build breaks into your working day or do not have sufficient support for your wrists.
There are a number of different types of repetitive strain injuries which are mainly named from the different muscle groups injured. These include:
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- Writer’s Cramp
- Rotator Cuff Injuries
- Ulna Neuropath
- Vibration white finger (VWF)
