Can I make a claim for Repetitive Strain Injuries?
You may be entitled to claim compensation if you have developed a repetitive strain injury as a result of your current or past working practices.
Any job that has repeated actions over a long time can increase the risk of developing a Repetitive Strain Injury. Some occupations such as office workers and factory workers are known to be at particular risk, however if you’ve:
- Worked on a production or assembly line
- Worked as a machinist
- Used vibrating tools for long periods of time
- Or lifted heavy loads as part of your job
Then you could be entitled to make a no win no fee claim for compensation.

It doesn’t cost you anything to speak to us and you are under no obligation to pursue a claim, even if we think you have a strong chance of winning.
