What is carpal tunnel syndrome and would you need the services of no-win, no-fee lawyers in Porthcawl?
Well, you can tell if you have carpal tunnel syndrome because your index and middle fingers will keep getting pins and needles, your wrist won’t feel quite right, and your forearm may aches now and then too. If this condition goes ignored, it will just get worse and cause numbness, a decrease of grip and also muscle wasting at the base of the thumb.
There are several causes of carpal tunnel syndrome and most of them are work related. All employers in the UK have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their staff and any visitors to their premises. If you are injured through no fault of your own and it was something that your employer could have prevented, then you may have a case for claiming personal injury compensation with the help of no-win, no-fee lawyers in Porthcawl.
What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?
Causes of carpal tunnel syndrome include the regular use of vibrating tools, heavy lifting or the regular use of a computer keyboard.
This condition pops up because the main nerve, which runs all the way from your arm and down to your hand, passes through the carpal tunnel and can become inflamed or damaged through the vibrations or strain the wrist is subjected to.
Treatments can include:
- A wrist splint to keep the carpal tunnel in place
- Steroid injections under proper supervision
If you know the root cause of your condition and it was brought on by something that was not your fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim and you should contact Accident Advice Helpline.
