A no win no fee lawyer in Potters Bar with Accident Advice Helpline explains Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The wrist has eight bones known as the carpal bones. Lying on top of these are the tendons that join the arm to the hand. The space between the two is known as the carpal tunnel, and through this runs the main nerve to the hand, which splits into five when it reaches the palm. If for any reason this nerve gets damaged, you may start to suffer from:
- Pins and needles, or a tingling sensation in the middle and index fingers. To start with, you may not notice it happening because it may just be in your fingertips.
- This then changes to pain in the same two fingers, and the pain can travel up your forearm.
- As it worsens, the fingers and parts of the palm may become numb.
- Some sufferers develop dry skin in the affected areas, as the condition gets worse.
- If the condition is not treated, the muscles will start to weaken and can eventually start to waste at the base of the thumb. This can lead to a lack of grip.
These are all the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, a curable condition with the right treatment and care.
The condition does not have to happen
There are many causes of carpal tunnel syndrome, several of them work related. Employers have a legal duty to prevent industrial illness and diseases, and should not allow this to happen. Apart from the key board scenario, other causes can be:
- Constantly using vibrating tools
- Excessive forceful bending of the wrist
- Regular heavy lifting
- Repeated direct pressure to the base of the palm
- Excessive forceful pinch grips
If your employer has not complied with health and safety regulations, and you develop carpal tunnel syndrome, or any other industrial illness, you may want to contact a no win no fee Potters Bar lawyer to discuss making a personal injury compensation claim.
