Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Claim

Settlement: Just under £5,000

The client’s job involved working on a small lathe fitted with an abrasive wheel every day, which caused vibration to be transmitted to his hands. He also had to flex and extend his wrists a lot when doing the work.

What Happened?

Our client began to suffer from symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (including pins and needles) in both of his wrists and underwent operative treatment to sure this.

How Tinsdills Helped

In order to bring a Claim successfully our Client had to prove that his symptoms were caused by his job. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition which is not always linked to work activities.

We obtained medical evidence which showed that the work carried out by the our Client had doubled his risk of developing this condition. A Claim was put to our Client’s employers whose insurers denied any liability. We then requested that we be given facilities for an engineer to look at the work that our Client was carrying out and to prepare a report on this.

Outcome

As soon as this request was made, the insurers admitted responsibility and made a settlement offer to our Client of just less than £5,000.
