1. Carpal tunnel

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects the nerves in the wrist. It is caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs through the wrist and into the hand. This pressure can be caused by repetitive use of the hands. If you feel that your employment has caused your diagnosis of Carpal tunnel syndrome, speak to one of our solicitors at MMW Claims today.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause a number of symptoms, including:

Pain in the hand and wrist

Numbness and tingling in the fingers

Weakness in the hand

If you have any of these symptoms, it is important to see a doctor. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be treated with surgery or with non-surgical treatments, such as splints and braces.

If you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of your work, you may be able to claim compensation. To make a claim, you will need to prove that your employer was negligent and that their negligence caused your injury. The expert claims solicitors at MMW claims will be able to advise if you can pursue a claim. You can still claim against companies who are no longer trading.  MMW claims will be able to ascertain if you have a claim by tracing insurance history for old companies.

Speak to one of the MMW Claims today. One of our specialist team of solicitors will advise you on the merits of your claim and what next steps are necessary to move your case forward. Once you have engaged MMW claims, we do all the work.

The next step is to get medical evidence from an expert Doctor. MMW Claims will obtain the specialist medical evidence you need. This evidence will show that you have carpal tunnel syndrome and that it is work-related.

MMW Claims will also need to obtain proof of your employment history from HMRC. This will prove that you were employed with the employer who you deem responsible for your claim and rule out the possibility that you worked with another employer where you could.

 If the insurers do not offer you a fair settlement, you may need to take your case to court. This is a last resort, but it may be necessary if you are not able to reach an agreement with the insurers.
