Repetitive strain injury compensation claims

Our solicitors have a proven track record in obtaining compensation for clients who have fallen victim to repetitive strain injuries such as tendonitis and other occupational diseases. It all starts with a simple conversation and some free initial no obligation legal advice, so if you have been diagnosed with tenosynovitis or tendonitis give us a call on 0203 816 0065 to discuss your situation. 

Tendonitis and tenosynovitis are two types of repetitive strain injury (RSI) that can be caused by repetitive motions of the fingers, hands wrists or arms.

Tendonitis is the inflammation of a tendon, whereas tenosynovitis is the inflammation of the sheath that surrounds a tendon, called the synovium.

Who can be affected by repetitive strain injury?

In most cases, rest may be all that is needed to stop this type of injury causing long term harm, but unfortunately for some, rest is not an option.

Tenosynovitis and tendonitis affects thousands of workers a year due to the repetitive nature of their job and usually affects the following:

  • Cleaners
  • Typists
  • Construction workers
  • Roofers
  • Writers
  • Assembly line workers
  • Carpenters
  • Operators of vibrating machinery or heavy equipment

Employers have a duty of care to ensure the appropriate safety measures are put in place, adequate safety equipment is provided and employees are working in a safe environment to reduce the risk of this type of repetitive strain injury. Failure to take the appropriate steps in reducing these injuries can result in long term problems.

If you are suffering from tenosynovitis or tendonitis, it’s vital you get in touch with your GP.

Start your compensation claim

If you have been diagnosed with tenosynovitis or any type of RSI and you feel your employer is at fault, speak to one of our expert solicitors. Even if you are not currently employed in any of the highlighted industries, you could still be eligible for an industrial or occupational disease compensation claim. Call our RSI solicitors on 0203 816 0065 to discuss your situation.
