RSI is a condition that happens due to repetitive motion, or overuse of a particular part of the body. It often manifests as pain, stiffness or a tingling sensation in the affected area, which could be your neck, shoulders, wrists or even fingers.
RSI is not a single medical condition, but rather a term that encompasses various disorders affecting muscles, tendons and nerves. Conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, and can all fall under the umbrella of RSI. It often starts off as mild pain, but gradually worsens over time if not addressed.
Understanding RSI is the first step in managing it and making a claim for RSI compensation. If you're experiencing symptoms that you think could be RSI, it's vital to seek medical advice for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. When you're ready to make a claim, we're here to guide you through it.
When it comes to RSI, the causes can be as varied as the people it affects. However, some common triggers tend to crop up more often than others:
Understanding the root cause of your RSI is important, not just for your RSI compensation claim but also for your wellbeing.
You can make a claim for RSI if you can prove that someone else's negligence led to your condition. Here are some scenarios where you might have a valid claim:
It's not just about proving that you have RSI; you also need to show that someone else's actions or lack of action contributed to your condition. This is where we come in. We'll help you gather the evidence you need to make a strong case, from medical records to workplace assessments.
Gathering the right evidence is important for a successful RSI claim, and showing how the injury has affected your life and work. Here's what you'll need to consider:
Collecting this evidence might seem overwhelming, but you're not alone. We're here to guide you through each step, making sure you've got the strongest case possible.
Navigating the legal maze of an RSI claim can be daunting, but we're here to make it as smooth as possible for you. Here's how we'll go about it, step by step:
Throughout the process, we'll keep you in the loop, making sure you know what's happening every step of the way.
Time is of the essence when it comes to making an RSI claim. The general rule is that you have three years from the date you became aware of your repetitive strain injury to start a legal claim. This doesn't necessarily mean three years from when the symptoms first appeared; it could be from the date you realised the symptoms were serious enough to be classified as an RSI, and were linked to your work or other activities.
However, there are exceptions to this rule. For instance, for those who are underage, the three-year limit doesn't start until their 18th birthday. Similarly, if the person suffering from RSI lacks the mental capacity to make their own claim, the time limit can be extended indefinitely.
It's key to act quickly, not just because of the legal time limit, but also because gathering evidence becomes more challenging as time passes. Records may be lost, and the link between your RSI and your work or activities may become harder to prove.
So, if you're considering making a claim for repetitive strain injury compensation, it's best to get in touch with Switalskis as soon as you can.
