    Industrial illness in Dawlish Warren

    Finger injuries, like all injuries, can happen in a multitude of ways. If you’ve experienced industrial illness in Dawlish Warren, such as a finger injury, and was someone else’s fault, you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation and you may want to use the services of or another law firm. Some of the most common finger injuries that personal injury compensation claims are made for include:

    • Carpal tunnel syndrome – a work related injury that comes on over a short time.  It is caused by the nerve in the carpal tunnel of the wrist becoming inflamed or compressed and with rest and treatment is totally curable.  Excessive twisting of the wrist or constant use of keyboards are just two of the things that will cause carpal tunnel syndrome.
    • Vibration white finger – this is related directly to prolonged use of vibrating tools and can take up to 10 years to happen.  When it does it will be painful and send your fingers white.  There is no cure for the damage to the nerves that has been sustained.
    • Mallet finger – this is sustained when the finger received a direct blow to the end.  This can damage the tendon that makes the finger bend and is very painful.
    • Broken fingers – we have not got room here to tell all the ways you could have broken fingers.  The main point is that if they were broken through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

    Where to seek recompense for your injury

    Carpal tunnel syndrome and vibration white finger are usually work related injuries that happen over a period of time. Your employer would have to face the claim
