Work injury solicitors in Glendaruel
All employers in the UK have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while in the workplace. This does not just apply to one-off accidents but also to longer-term conditions, which develop over time. These can happen in a victim’s place of employment if the employer does not follow the guidelines that apply to the use of some types equipment.
If your employer is negligent and you sustain a condition such as carpal tunnel syndrome because of your job, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim against them. Injury solicitors in Glendaruel have handled many claims of this nature and have the experience you need to give your personal injury claim the best chance of success.
Why the services of work injury solicitors in Glendaruel might be useful if you have carpal tunnel syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a wrist complaint caused by the nerve that runs through the carpal tunnel becoming compressed or inflamed. The carpal tunnel itself carries the nerve from the forearm to the hand, and if the wrist gets excessive pressure or twisting, the symptoms start to appear. Although the problem is with the wrist, it is in your hand you will feel the effects. The discomfort and pain you suffer would have been avoided if the correct precautions had been taken, and then you would not be using injury solicitors in Glendaruel to make a personal injury claim.
The symptoms of the condition
The signs that you may have carpal tunnel syndrome will vary depending on the severity, but can include:
- Pins and needles in the index and middle finger
- Burning and tingling sensations in the same two fingers
- Pain in the fingers which may travel up the forearm
- If the symptoms are ignored, the condition will worsen and the pain and numbness start to spread. Eventually, it will lead to loss of grip and muscle wasting at the base of the thumb.
For some unknown reason, women tend to suffer from this condition more often than men, as do people over 50. It is a curable condition, providing the wrist is allowed time to heal. Sometimes a wrist splint is used let the wrist rest and in the severest of cases, surgery may be carried out to relieve the pressure on the nerve
