Suffering a Repetitive Strain injury (RSI) at work can have serious effects on a person’s day to day life. If the RSI injury was caused or made worse by work or your place of employment, it’s possible you may have a claim for compensation.
The RSI legal process
RSI injuries at work are typically handled under the WorkCover workers compensation scheme. The video below provides a simple, step-by-step guide to bringing a claim for compensation with Shine Lawyers, so you know what to expect from the legal process.
How RSI compensation gets calculated
No two RSI or OOS compensation claims are the same because everyone’s situation is different. RSI injury claims are often very complicated to pursue legally, which is why you should always seek expert legal advice that is right for you.
In most RSI workers compensation claims, a monetary value is usually placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the injury, and your actual life path since the injury.
