Work Related Upper Limb Disorder

A Work Related Upper Limb Disorder, encompassing repetitive strain and other injuries, is often connected with repetitive injuries carried out in the workplace. Whilst upper limb disorders can have natural causes, the disorder is more commonly caused by work related issues. However, the tasks carried out in the workplace which have led to the upper limb disorder do not necessarily have to have been of a repetitive nature, though of course, they may well have been. A Work Related Upper Limb Disorder causes the sufferer to experience extreme pain in their hands/arm which often leads to them being classed as having a disability. Work Related Upper Limb Disorders can be caused through repetitive tasks, awkward tasks, bad posture, heavy lifting, and can be caused through a single or repetitive action.

At 1stClaims, our expert solicitors specialise in Work Related Upper Limb Disorder claims and have experience of successfully representing clients who have suffered an upper limb disorder as a result of a work related task or tasks.

Examples of how a Work Related Upper Limb Disorder may be caused include:

  • Repetitive use of a keyboard;
  • Moving a heavy or awkward item, repetitively or as a one off task;
  • Bad posture, perhaps due to an inadequately set out work station;
  • Repetitively operating a single piece of machinery.

The most commonly known conditions which fall under the heading of Work Related Upper Limb Disorders include Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Vibration White Finger, Tendinitis and Tennis Elbow.

Your employer has a duty to ensure your health and safety whilst in the workplace and if they have failed to take adequate steps to do this you may be able to show that your employer has been negligent.
