Repetitive strain injury experts at Michael Lewin are competent in getting much needed financial compensation for clients who are unfortunate enough to need our services.
Mrs L from Warrington suffered back and arm injury as her job was to move around 50 boxes per day.
Our client had been working in her role for some time when she felt the initial niggles in her arm and back. These small niggles got to the point where she could no longer perform her duties in work competently any longer.
Our client was 42 when her injuries were sustained in the workplace. She thought that she could claim for repetitive strain injury as the constant lifting of heavy boxes daily was what caused her back and arm to be injured initially.

For repetitive strain injury compensation our highly qualified staff can get you compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.
An employer should have a person who deals with health and safety matters. This person must be legally competent. In other words that person should have the ability to understand the concerns around health and safety.
If you have been injured in a repetitive strain accident in your workplace our experienced employment accident experts can give you advice about making a claim.
The health and safety act of 1974 states in part 6: It shall be the duty of every employer to consult any such representatives with a view to the making and maintenance of arrangements which will enable him and his employees to co-operate effectively in promoting and developing measures to ensure the health and safety at work of the employees and in checking the effectiveness of such measures.
All the measures in the 1974 act must be adhered to if the employer is not wishing a claim to be taken against the employer.
