About Your Employer
Are you worried about making a compensation claim for RSI against your employer?
You needn’t be. When you make a claim for compensation you are taking a big step towards improving working conditions for everyone. Repetitive strain injuries (RSI) can be extremely painful and limiting so continuing to carry out the very task that has caused or worsened your RSI for fear of confronting your employer about your condition will only make things worse for everyone.
It goes without saying that if you continue to work when suffering with a form of RSI then your symptoms will not improve and could even become significantly worse as a result. This could leave you unable to do your job in the long-term, which will undoubtedly be a significant loss for your employer, who will most probably ask why you didn’t raise your concerns earlier. Taking steps towards making a claim for your injuries sooner rather than later will mean that you are able to get the treatment you need for your condition and get back to doing your job sooner. Aside from the above, when at work your employer has a duty to keep you and your colleagues safe and if they have not taken sufficient measures to protect the safety of their staff in the workplace then they have acted unlawfully.
If you have suffered as a result of simply going to work each day then you have a right to make a claim for compensation. Your claim could also significantly improve working conditions for your colleagues, as your employer will have the reasons for the claim explained to them and will likely want to avoid any more lawsuits in future.
