Injury claims in Porthcawl
Working in an office may seem to be a safe working environment, yet many office workers develop chronic conditions and painful injuries as a result of improper ergonomic set ups and prolonged tasks.
One such ailment is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), a painful musculoskeletal disorder that affects hundreds of people across the UK. Here, we take a look at some information about this disorder, and how a solicitor can help you claim compensation for it.
Some facts about CTS
- According to the NHS, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affects between 60-120 people per 100,000 (2012)
- CTS affects more women than men
- Musculoskeletal disorders like CTS are the primary cause of occupational absences in the UK (Gormley and Harriss)
This painful chronic condition is characterised by tingling in the hands and wrist, and can be caused by repetitive tasks such as typing. It is therefore quite a common injury in people in secretarial or office roles. CTS can make doing your day-to-day job difficult in the short term, and in the long term can eventually lead to arthritis. Also, the condition worsens at night when a wrist splint might prove useful to stop any stress on the injury.
