Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is an occupational illness that affects thousands of people each year, causing numbness and pain in the fingers, wrist and arm. Although carpel tunnel syndrome is treatable, due to the nature of the illness it can often have a disruptive impact on people’s lives, inhibiting sufferer’s dexterity.

If you believe you have developed carpel tunnel syndrome due to the failure of your employer to implement the required safeguards you may be eligible to pursue a personal injury claim. Here at Farleys our experienced solicitors are experts in this area of law and offer our clients a free initial consultation. To begin your claim today call 0333 331 4802, alternatively please complete an online enquiry form.

Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The development of carpal tunnel syndrome can not be attributed to one isolated factor, with medical professions arguing it can be both the result of genetics and environmental conditions such strenuous or repetitive work.

The condition occurs when the median nerve which is responsible for the movement and control of the hand is compressed by the build up of fluid, causing symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome to develop. Whilst suffers can experience symptoms that vary in terms of severity most exhibit tingling, numbness and pain isolated to hands and fingers.

Those most at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome include occupations that involve:

  • Repetitive tasks such as typing;
  • Regular lifting placing stress on the hands;
  • Repeated exposure to pressure across the base of the palm and carpel tunnel;
  • Excessive use of vibrating tools and injury causing repetitive strain injury.
