Injury Solicitors in Dalkeith hope you do not hurt your wrist

Ligaments and tendons passing over eight small bones called the carpal bones form the carpal tunnel.  Through this tunnel runs the main nerve to the hand, which if it becomes damaged or compressed causes carpal tunnel syndrome.  This is quite often a work related disorder, one of the many your employer should protect you from.  If you have got this condition because of your employment, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim using the services of injury solicitors in Dalkeith.

Why injury solicitors in Dalkeith think work may have caused your injury

There are many causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, most of which are work related and just some of these are:

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

Carpal tunnel syndrome 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.  The condition does tend to disappear once the birth has taken place.  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 personal injury claim, using injury solicitors in Dalkeith.

How you will know you have carpal tunnel syndrome

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

  • Pins and needles in the index and middle fingers are usually the first two fingers 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
  • 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 suspect you may have carpal tunnel syndrome, you should visit your doctor for their advice and recommendations.
