Are you suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs in your hand when a nerve from your arm is compressed, causing pain, numbness and tingling. You may also lose strength in your grip. This can have a significant impact on your life and activities, and even on your quality of sleep.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by an industrial injury. You may develop it through repetitive work-related movements such as assembly line production, holding a tool that is heavy or vibrating, or typing.
As with any accident or injury, you need the right help, tailored to your situation. If you’ve developed carpal tunnel syndrome because of poor or incorrect working conditions, you shouldn’t have to pay for the consequences, or chase around trying to find the right specialist help.
Making a claim for compensation might seem like extra hassle, but we make it simple to get the right advice and help, with just one free phone call. Our support will help you to recover more quickly.
Compensation can really help to ease the stress, covering medical costs, loss of earnings, housing and travel costs, and continuing care. It also compensates you for the pain and suffering. If you suffer a more serious injury, it can help you adapt your home, car and way of life.
Get the right treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome
When you have symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s essential to seek prompt medical attention and diagnosis. If you decide to make a claim for compensation, medical proof of your injury can help to back up your case.
If your condition is diagnosed early, non-surgical methods such as wrist splinting can help to improve it. Home remedies and alternative therapies including hand and ultrasound therapy may also help. However, if your symptoms are severe, or don’t respond to other treatment, you may need surgery.

Why make a carpal tunnel syndrome claim?
Carpal tunnel syndrome can interfere with daily life and activities, causing constant or intermittent pain or discomfort. Treating it may be a lengthy process. It can take time, money and rest to put things right.
If you need to take periods off work, you may find it difficult to keep up with the mortgage, rent or household bills. You might also have to depend on someone else to help you. Claiming compensation for loss of earnings could enable you and your family to cope.
Employers have a legal duty to keep their employees safe. They must follow regulations, conduct risk assessments and make sure employees have what they need to do their jobs safely – for example, adjustments to a workstation, proper equipment, or additional training.
If conditions in your workplace have caused you to suffer carpal tunnel syndrome, you could claim compensation. An employer’s liability insurance will usually cover the compensation award, so no one will lose out.
