If you have been experiencing symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and your employer or another third party is to blame then you could be entitled to receive compensation. Exactly how much you will receive will depend on certain criteria.
At an initial consultation, your solicitor will discuss with you all the details of your injury to verify whether your claim is going to be viable and the size of settlement fee you could expect to receive. During the consultation, the following will be discussed:
All of the above will greatly influence the amount of compensation you receive. Typically, hand injuries fees range from £1,450 – £59,500. The figure you receive will reflect the severity of your injury and, in turn, the severity of the consequences. Psychological damage, age and whether or not a complete recovery is likely will also be brought into the equation. These figures are meant as a guide only. The personal injury lawyer handling your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome claim will look at all the details of your case and consider previous similar cases to estimate the amount you could receive.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition affecting the function of the hand(s) or wrist(s). It is brought about when pressure is applied to a nerve in the hand causing pain and discomfort. Some job roles can require repetitive movement in the hands and arms and in some instances cause carpal tunnel syndrome to occur.
Your employer is legally bound to prevent any injuries sustained in the workplace.
