Making an injury claim in Park Lane for carpal tunnel syndrome

In the wrist there are eight bones known as the carpal bones.  Lying on top of them are the tendons that join the arm to the hand.  The space between the two is known as the carpal tunnel and through this runs the main nerve to the hand, which splits into five when it reaches the palm.  If this nerve gets damaged, you may suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome and be able to make an injury claim in Park Lane.

The possible cause of carpal tunnel syndrome

There are many causes of the condition, and many of the are work related, such as:

  • Constantly using vibrating tools
  • Excessive forceful bending of the wrist
  • Regular heavy lifting
  • Repeated direct pressure to the base of the palm
  • Excessive forceful pinch grips

Your employer has a legal duty to ensure that he protects the health and safety of his employees.  If he fails in this duty, and you contract carpal tunnel syndrome, you may be able to make an injury claim in Park Lane.

How you will know you have the condition

Although the symptoms will start quite minor, they do not take long to progress if ignored.  Some of the things you may experience are:

  • The first symptom is pins and needles, or a tingling sensation in the middle and index fingers.  To start with, you may not notice it happening because it may just be in your fingertips.
  • This then changes to pain in the same two fingers, and the pain can travel up your forearm.
  • As it worsens, the fingers and parts of the palm may become numb.
  • Some sufferers develop dry skin in the affected areas as the condition gets worse.
  • If carpal tunnel syndrome is not treated, the muscles will start to weaken and can eventually start to waste at the base of the thumb.. this can lead to a lack of grip.

Both hands can be affected, often at the same time.  Initially the symptoms ate spasmodic, but as the condition gets more serious, it becomes persistent and can cause much discomfort.

Treating carpal tunnel syndrome

As soon as you become aware that you may have this condition, the first thing you should do is stop the action that is causing it.  The wrist needs time and rest to heal and continuing to do whatever action is causing it will just aggravate the situation.

There are other treatments, which can include:

  • The condition tends to be worse at nighttime and a wrist splint can help when you go to bed.  It keeps the tunnel in place without any stress.
  • Steroid injections
  • Surgery to release the nerve
