Repetitive Strain Injury Claims (RSI) in Leicester
Of all the work injury claims that we deal with, RSI, or repetitive strain injury, is probably the one that employer’s least take seriously. That should not be the case though, as RSI can be very painful and have drastic effects on a person’s quality of life. Because of that it is sometimes possible for our solicitors to claim for relatively large compensation amounts.

What is Repetitive Strain Injury?
Repetitive strain injury (RSI) is the medical term for damage to the tissues in the hand and arm area which occurs after repeated manual actions. This could be related to lifting heavy objects, typing, computer work, and workers in construction and the building trade.
The types of jobs, trades, and employment that will lead to repetitive strain injury will include the following types, although this list should not be viewed as comprehensive. Essentially if you have RSI and we can relate it to the negligence or fault of a third party then we can help you to claim.
- Using computers or typing for long periods
- Machine and equipment operators
- Heavy lifting and manual work
- Using vibrating tools, such as drills
- Cradling a phone for long periods of time
- A repetitive strain injury at work
Those with RSI can suffer from severe pain, and this can include a numb feeling, tingling, loss of strength, and other factors. If you are suffering then contact our team now specialising in repetitive strain injury claims for Leicester.
