Every employer has a legal duty to ensure your health and safety while you are at work, to make sure that you have a safe environment to work in. If you are injured in an accident as a result of your employer’s negligence, then you should contact the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline to make a claim for compensation.
If is not just one off accidents employers should be trying to prevent, but also the longer term conditions that can happen through your employment, conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel in your wrist becoming inflamed. Repeated pressure on your wrist, excessive bending of your wrist, vibrating tools and direct pressure can all be things that create this problem.
It is often referred to as typist wrist because the constant use of a keyboard, without the proper precautions in place, is a typical cause of carpal tunnel syndrome.
This condition is preventable and if your employer is negligent and you sustain it, you may be entitled to compensation and should speak to our solicitors to discuss your claim.
There are another preventable industrial conditions
Carpal tunnel syndrome is by no means the only long term effect a job can have. There are many others that our solicitors would like to hear from you about if you contract any of them through no fault of your own. Such conditions as:
- Industrial deafness
- Vibration white finger
- Back damage
- Illnesses related to exposure to dangerous substances
- Mallet finger
These are just a sample of the longer term problems that your employer should protect you from, and if they do not you would be entitled to claim compensation from them.
