The extensive experience of AAH, no win no fee Calne injury claim lawyers
Most people tend to associate RSIs with things like vibration white finger and whole body vibration. In the office workplace however, it’s carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), which is one of the most frequent reasons for personal injury claims being raised.
Symptoms of CTS
CTS is a condition which arises through constant pressure being exerted on the median nerve. This is the name of a particular nerve in the wrist which facilitates feeling and movement in the hand. Symptoms include tingling, numbness, weakness, and muscle damage. It’s something that many office workers experience because of the way they position their hands when they’re using computer keyboards. CTS is a workplace injury that AAH, as one of the nation’s favourite no win no fee Calne office accident injury claim lawyers, have extensive experience of.
The employer’s duty of care
CTS is the sort of injury that is easily avoidable if employees are made aware of the dangers. It’s something that can be addressed by assuming comfortable working positions and the use of appropriate PPE if it is issued by the employer. Failing to provide full information and/or training, and failing to issue appropriate PPE is a dereliction in the employer’s duty of care, and if it results in an employee sustaining an injury, that employee is well within his/her rights to launch a personal injury claim for compensation.
