    Best solicitors in Dorridge

    Dorridge is a large village in the West Midlands borough of Solihull. The earliest evidence of settlement though is of Bronze Age man – an axe dated to 1300 BC was found in Norton Green. Cottages dating back to the 16th century exist in Mill Pool Lane.

    Dorridge is an extremely busy part of Solihull with large residential areas as well as shopping centres, business parks and factories. The employers all over the UK, not just in Dorridge, have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work and this includes protecting them from industrial conditions, not just one off accidents.

    If employers fail in this duty, and a member of staff contracts an industrial condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome, the employer may have to face injury solicitors Dorridge with a personal injury claim made on behalf of the employee.

    Talking about carpal tunnel syndrome with the best solicitors in Dorridge

    There are many causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, most of them work related.  Your employed has a duty to protect you from this type, or any other type of injury and if they have failed in this duty, you may need to speak with injury solicitors Dorridge.  It is a curable condition but will cause much pain and discomfort for its duration.

    There are many ways it is caused, just a few of them are:

    • Constant use of a keyboard for typing, this can be avoided by using wrist rests with the keyboard and taking regular breaks from the typing.
    • Constantly using vibrating tools or equipment, the length of time you operate these should be regulated by time limits
    • Excessive forceful bending of the wrist
    • Regular heavy lifting
    • Repeated direct pressure on the base of the palm
    • Excessive forceful pinch grip

    Treating carpal tunnel syndrome

    Firstly you need to stop whatever action is causing the problem.  The wrist needs rest if it is to heal, and apart from that, you may want to try other treatments, such as:

    • A wrist splint to keep the tunnel in place without stress.  This can be particularly helpful at night when the condition tends to get worse
    • Steroid injections
    • Surgery to release the nerve

    Make your claim

    Accident Advice Helpline were established in 2000 to give access to justice to the non-fault victims of accidents and in the last 13 years we have helped many thousands of victims get the compensation to which they were entitled.

    In 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury claims.  This put making a claim out of the reach of many people, so the 1999 Finance Act allowed the conditional fee agreement to be used instead.  This is better known as No Win, No Fee and it is the basis we operate on.  As you do not need to find any money to start your claim, anyone can now make a personal injury compensation claim.

    On our website there is a 30-second test that will give you some guidance as to the amount you may be eligible for.

    Our freephone number, 0800 689 0500, is there for you to call one of our friendly advisers. They will discuss the details of your claim with you, and if you wish to proceed, put the wheels in motion. We have some of the best solicitors in Dorridge available for you to speak to now, so don’t hesitate. Call today.
