Do you think you may be suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, as a result of your hand and wrist repetitively moving at work? You may be entitled to make a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Compensation Claim.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a medical condition caused by the compression of the median nerve located inside the carpal tunnel of each wrist.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may, in severe cases, result in you having to take time off work for treatment and in order to make a full recovery, which may mean financial loss to you or your family. A successful claim for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Compensation may not only help to provide financial support but may encourage the employer to reduce the number of repetitive wrist movements in your daily work routine. Your employer has a duty to ensure you are using the correct tools for the job you are required to do; including equipment that has been designed to reduce the risk of wrist injury.

Please feel free to browse through some of the news stories below, relating to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
PRWeb (10th May 2012)
– Carpal tunnel is a medical condition that affects many people and is becoming increasingly widespread. Indeed, some doctors are now linking it to long periods of time spent typing at a computer, which explains why, as more workers are computer-bound, instances of this medical condition are on the rise.
Shore News Today (7th May 2012)
– Many people put up with the numbness, tingling, “pins-and-needles” sensation and pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome every day. Minor symptoms can be present for months, years or even decades before the day when they physically show in every day activities or affect sleep and prompt a visit to the doctor.
Symptoms can be different from person to person; from mild cases to severe. One or both hands can be affected. Symptoms can come and go in early stages, often after you’ve used the hand or hands. Symptoms are worse at night and may wake you up.
Those at risk of developing occupational Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are usually required to do tasks that involve highly repetitive awkward wrist movements, high handgrip and pinch force… and those working with vibration tools.
If you have been subject to repetitive motion of the hand and wrist at work and have been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, you may be entitled to compensation. Call us for free advice now.
