Claiming Against a Current Employer for RSI
If you are still currently employed by a business where you have suffered a repetitive strain injury then please don’t be concerned about claiming. If you call our helpline today we can give you some re-assurances.
All businesses in the London area are required by law to be insured against work injury claims. That means any repetitive strain injury compensation will be paid for out of an insurance policy, and not by your employer. Plus, it’s also illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee who has taken action of this type. So with that in mind, and if you feel you might be suffering from RSI due to your working environment please do call us today.
