    Injury claim in Martock


    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be the cause of an injury claim in Martock

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome happens when the main nerve from the arm to the hand becomes trapped or inflamed in the carpal tunnel.  The carpal tunnel is formed by the space between the tendons and ligaments that attach the hand to the forearm and the carpal bones.  If the damage to the nerve is caused because of an accident you may be able to make an injury claim in Martock.

    The possible causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that could result in an injury claim in Martock

    There are many causes for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, just a few of them are:

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

    If any of these results in you having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, it is time to make an injury claim in Martock.

    The symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    The signs of the condition are:

    • The first thing you would notice is pins and needles in the middle and index fingers
    • In the same two fingers you may then experience burning or tingling sensations
    • Eventually this will turn to pain.  It is not unusual for the pain to be in the hand and extend up the forearm
    • Occasionally, some sufferers experience dry and chaffed skin in the affected area
    • When it reaches its worst state, the thumb can become numb and weak causing a lack of grip.  Eventually, if the condition is not treated, this can lead to muscle wasting at the base of the thumb.

    If you have any of these signs and you know they have been caused by the negligence of someone else, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Martock.

    The treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

    The first thing you should do once you become aware that you have the condition, is stop doing the action that is causing it. Then:

    • The wrist should be allowed to rest to let it recover
    • Take painkillers if necessary
    • A wrist splint is often used to keep the tunnel in place without stress, particularly at night time
    • Steroid injections
    • Surgery to release the nerve

    Women tend to suffer from this condition more than men and seem to be particularly susceptible when they are pregnant.  As soon as the baby is born it normally disappears.
