Our client worked for a steel company making tubes for the petro-chemical industry. His work involved pulling a long metal tube along a workbench with one hand, securing it in a vice before "flicking" the bar from the workbench into a channel. The process was heavy work, involving repetitions of hundreds of times per day.
As a result of the work, our client developed golf and tennis elbow to such an extent that he was forced to change jobs and was only able to work part-time in lower paid employment.
Our industrial injury solicitors were able to present a strong case that our client's future work and earnings would be significantly affected by the repetitive strain injury.
We made a repetitive strain injury claim for our client and were able to negotiate an out of court settlement for £100,000 in compensation.
If you or a loved one has suffered from repetitive strain injuries, such as bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy and vibration white finger caused by conditions at work, our solicitors could help you claim compensation. See our Industrial Disease Claims page for more information.
