What’s Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
At Mercury Legal Online we’re experienced in helping people like you make successful claims for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This form of repetitive strain injury affects many people, especially office workers where they can be affected by prolonged periods of typing at a keyboard or from sitting in awkward positions. Carpal tunnel syndrome, often abbreviated to CTS, refers to a complaint caused when the median nerve becomes trapped in the wrist area. CTS sufferers often complain of severe numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers, pain and reduced grip. Typically the numbness and tingling can affect sleep and those troubled with this condition will complain of being woken up with an uncomfortable sensation in one or both of their hands. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome you’ll experience:
- Sensations such as numbness
- Burning and swelling of the thumb
- Tingling affecting the thumb, index finger, inside fourth finger and same area on the hand
- In severe carpal tunnel cases the whole hand and arm up to the shoulder and neck can experience pain
Worried about making a claim?
Employers have a responsibility to make sure that as an employee you take regular breaks from repetitive work processes. Your employer is negligent if these simple procedures have not been identified and addressed. If you’ve experienced carpal tunnel syndrome you can make a claim for compensation. You shouldn’t worry about making a claim; your employer will have insurance for situations such as this.
