Compensation claim in Pimlico


Carpal Tunnel Syndrome compensation claim in Pimlico

There are eight small bones in the wrist called the carpal bones.  Across the front of the wrist there is a ligament and it is the space between these bones and ligament that form the carpal tunnel.  The tendons that attach the forearm to the hand pass through this tunnel, as does the main nerve to the hand before it divides into small branches at the palm.

The causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and why you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Pimlico

There are many causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and just some of these are:

  • Repeated direct pressure on the base of the palm
  • Repeated use of vibrating tools
  • Repeated forceful bending of the wrist
  • Repeated forceful pinch grips
  • Regular heavy lifting

These, and other, repeated actions damage the nerve in the tunnel, hence Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.   This can happen at any age but most cases occur between 40 and 50.  Women are more likely to suffer from this than men, particularly if they are pregnant.   A lot of these problems happen in the workplace and if you have sustained this injury through your employment, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Pimlico.

The symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

There are several symptoms that may occur depending on the severity of the injury, they include:

  • Pins and needles are one of the first signs.  The index and middle fingers are usually the first two to be affected.
  • Burning and tingling sensations.
  • Pain in the same two fingers which may travel up the forearm.
  • As the condition worsens you may experience numbness in the fingers and palm of the hand.
  • Some people suffer dry of the skin in the affected area.
  • At its worst, muscles in the fingers and thumb become weak causing poor grip.  If left untreated, this can eventually lead to muscle wasting at the base of the thumb.

If you are suffering these symptoms and you think it may have been caused by your job, your may be able to make a compensation claim in Pimlico.

The treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

If you consider you have this condition the first thing you should do is stop the action that you think may be causing it.  Rest the wrist and take painkillers if necessary.  In most people under 30, the symptoms will disappear on their own but the action that has caused it originally will make it return quicker if you continue to carry it out. If this action is part of your work, you may be able to make a compensation claim in Pimlico.  In the situation of pregnant women the condition tends to disappear when the baby is born.

If the conditions worsen the other treatment options are:

  • A wrist splint
  • A steroid injection
  • Surgery
