Occupational Asthma and RSI Claims

Repetitive Strain Injuries and Work Related Upper Limb Disorders (“RSI”) are  injuries where the pain from muscles, nerves and tendons is caused by repetitive movements and overuse, usually to the upper limbs.

rsi claims

There are a number of different medical conditions which may be forms of RSI including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Epicondylitis (“golfers elbow” or “tennis elbow”)
  • Tenosynovitis
  • De Quervain’s syndrome/De Quervain’s tenosynovitis/Tenovaginitis
  • Stenosing tenosynovitis (“trigger finger”)

However, these conditions are common in the general population even in those who do not do repetitive work. If work has not caused the medical condition, an inappropriate working environment may make the condition worse or advance it’s progress. In such cases it is possible to claim compensation.

wrist pain claims

There is an increased risk of RSI if the work is done:

  • Repetitively – particularly if the repetitive work is undertaken at speed
  • Adopting an awkward posture
  • Using force or undertaking heavy lifting
  • Without adequate breaks

RSI’s can occur throughout different industries. At MRH Solicitors we have Solicitors who have experience of handling a wide range of RSI claims including claims relating to:

  • The Motor Industry – we have Solicitors who have successfully conducted hundreds of claims against GM and Vauxhall Motors and some of their suppliers.
  • Food processing
  • Packing orders for catalogue companies
  • Animal slaughter

It is notoriously difficult to bring a claim for RSI and therefore to increase the prospects of success it is important to instruct a specialist Solicitor who has the skill, experience and expertise to deal with your claim.

If you think you have suffered RSI due to the nature of your employment then please contact the MRH Solicitors industrial disease team on 01204 535 333 or fill out our online form to submit your query online for our team to call you within 24 hours.

Occupational Asthma Claims

Asthma is a very serious medical condition in which the airways to the lungs become inflamed and narrower. This makes it difficult to breath. People are affected by asthma in different ways but common symptoms of asthma include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath.

occupational asthma

Asthma is thought to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Anything that irritates the airways and causes symptoms of asthma is known as a “trigger”.

Over 400 workplace substances have been identified as having asthmagenic or allergenic properties. Asthma may be aggravated at work by exposure to, for example, dust or fumes. Asthma can be caused in the workplace simply by breathing in hazardous dusts, gases, fumes and vapours.

People who work in the following occupations have a higher rate of occupational asthma:

  • Bakers
  • Vehicle spray painters
  • Solderers
  • Woodworkers
  • Healthcare workers
  • Laboratory animal workers
  • Agricultural workers
  • Engineering workers

lungs asthma

The MRH Solicitors industrial disease team have successfully pursued claims for asthma sufferers both in the County Court and in the Court of Appeal. Claims pursued have arisen as a result of exposure to substances such as colophony, wheat and carbon fibre reinforced ceramic composite materials.

If you think you have suffered Occupational Asthma due to your working environment, then please contact the MRH Solicitors industrial disease team on 01204 535 333 or fill out our online form to submit your query online for our team to call you within 24 hours.
