Legal help on the Isle of Lismore
The Isle of Lismore is an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The climate is damp and mild, with over 166 centimetres of rain recorded annually, and the economy is largely based on farming, fishing and tourism — not the sorts of trades in which you would expect to sustain injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, but in tourism, real estate or similar, lots of people spend much time on keyboards, one of the most common causes of the condition.
There are many causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, most of them work-related. Your employer has a duty to protect you from this and any other type of injury, and if they have failed in this duty, you may need to find legal help on the Isle of Lismore.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Some of the more common causes are:
- Constant use of a keyboard for typing, which can be avoided by using wrist rests with the keyboard and taking regular breaks from the typing;
- Constantly using vibrating tools or equipment — the length of time you operate these should be regulated by time limits;
- Excessive forceful bending of the wrist;
- Regular heavy lifting;
- Repeated direct pressure on the base of the palm; and
- Excessive forceful pinch grips.
If you think you might have developed the condition through your job, you best speak to an injury lawyer on the Isle of Lismore.
How to treat carpal tunnel syndrome
Firstly, you need to fathom what is causing the condition and stop that action. The wrist needs rest to heal, and apart from that you may want to try other treatments, such as:
- A wrist splint to keep the tunnel in place without stress;
- Steroid injections; and
- Surgery to release the nerve.
How to make your personal injury compensation claim
If you know what is causing your carpal tunnel syndrome, and it is not your fault, then you may be able to use legal help on the Isle of Lismore to make a compensation claim. The easy way to do this is to contact Accident Advice Helpline.
We were established in 2000 to provide access to justice for the non-fault victims of accidents, and in the last 15 years, we have helped many thousands of victims to get the compensation to which they were entitled, for their injuries.
In 1998, the government abolished legal aid for personal injury claims. This put making a claim out of the reach of many people, so the 1999 Finance Act allowed the conditional fee agreement to be used instead. This is better known as no-win, no-fee, and it upon this basis which we operate. As you do not need to find any money to start your claim under no-win, no-fee, anyone can now make a personal injury compensation claim.
On our website, there is a 30-second test, which will give you some guidance as to the amount you may be eligible to receive if you make a successful claim. Our freephone number, 0800 689 0500, is there for you to call one of our friendly advisors. If you’re calling from a mobile, the number is 0333 500 0993 (charges may vary). They will discuss the details of your claim with you and help you get the legal help on the Isle of Lismore you need to make your claim.
