Repetitive Strain Injury Compensation

Unlike most other types of personal injury claim, a Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) is usually associated with doing a particular activity repeatedly or for a long period of time, rather than a single event. It often occurs in people who work with computers or carry out repetitive manual work. The term "Repetitive Strain Injury" is a general term for a variety of disorders causing pains in the neck, shoulders, arms, wrists or hands by repetitive movement or overuse. It is also known as Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD).

We are experts in RSI compensation and can deal with RSI compensation claims under a no win no fee agreement and we strive to maximise the damages that we recover for all our clients.

for no obligation advice on making a claim.

What are the most common types of RSI?

A Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) can occur in many different forms, but there are two main types:

  • Type 1 RSI: RSI is classed as type 1 when a doctor can diagnose a recognised medical condition. Symptoms usually include swelling and inflammation of the muscles or tendons. This includes conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis and tendonitis.
  • Type 2 RSI: RSI is classed as type 2 when a doctor cannot diagnose a medical condition from the symptoms. This is usually because there are no obvious symptoms, just a feeling of pain. Type 2 RSI is also referred to as non-specific pain syndrome.

Each type of RSI can have a similar effect on the sufferer. The amount you can claim in compensation is therefore not dependent on the type of repetitive strain, but on the effect on you as an individual such as: whether surgery was necessary, the amount of pain you suffered and your ability to work following the injury.

Can I make an RSI compensation claim?

An employer is obliged under Health and Safety legislation to assess the risks of their employees suffering from a Repetitive Strain Injury.

One of our expert personal injury lawyers will determine:

  • If your employer was aware that you were at risk of an RSI
  • If your employer failed to take reasonable steps to prevent or reduce risk of an RSI injury
  • If your RSI injury was caused by the work you were required to carry out
