Repetitive Strain Injuries
These work related injuries are very difficult to assess, and here at Howe+Co we have the experience to assist you in making your claim.
Does your work involve repetition, and movement of a similar nature during your time at work? You may have to carry out your work in a particular manner leading to pain in your upper limbs, or even stiffness.
You may experience pain, stiffness, and problems with your neck and shoulders.
If you believe your work puts you in a position where you are making many repetitive movements then the pain from these movements is something you can claim compensation for.
Conditions that could be caused by this type of work are Tennis Elbow, Tenosynovitis and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. If you have been diagnosed with one of these conditions then our experts at Howe+Co will be able to assess your working environment and the likelihood of making a valid claim.
Examples of occupations that are at risk of developing this type of condition are computer operators/secretaries, production line workers, packers, and machinists.
Do your colleagues also complain of similar aches and pains. It is easier making this type of claim where there are multiple claimants working in the same way as you.
