How Much Compensation For Repetitive Strain Injury
Repetitive Strain Injuries cover a range of different conditions which can often begin in the workplace. You may also recognise this condition as RSI or as a work-related upper limb disorder.
Compensation Ranges For RSI
How much compensation for a repetitive strain injury is based on a number of different factors which include the following:
- The lower end of the scale covers cases where there has been a complete recovery in a matter of weeks. These claims usually result in settlement fees of around £1,575
- If the symptoms of your RSI resolve within 3 years then figures between £6,175 and £7,700 can be expected
- Higher rewards are given in cases where one side of the body has been affected by the injury ( unilateral) and there is still evidence of fluctuating symptoms. Fees in this bracket are approximately £10,600 up to £11,700
- Bilateral ( affecting both sides of the body) incapacity resulting surgery will see amounts of £15,650 granted. Loss of employment can also be evident in these cases
Types of Repetitive Strain Injury
Types of Repetitive Strain Injury include tenosynovitis; carpal tunnel syndrome; epicondylitis. How much compensation for each of these will be based on the above factors as well as age; whether or not the dominant side of the body has been affected; if you are able to work or not and if there has been the need for surgery.
