Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a painful injury that affects the wrist and hand, causing weakness, numbness and a burning or tingling sensation in the hand and fingers. If you’ve developed CTS at work, our solicitors could help you make a carpal tunnel compensation claim. Can I Claim Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Compensation?
Your employer has a duty of care to protect you from developing carpal tunnel syndrome. If you’ve developed CTS from your work, you could be able to make a carpal tunnel compensation claim.
CTS can be caused by repeated:
Use of vibrating tools
Direct pressure on the base of the palm, over the carpal tunnel
Forceful bending of the wrist
Forceful pinch grips
We have a proven track record in carpal tunnel syndrome claims and we aim to make the claims process as simple as possible, supporting you every step of the way.
How Long Do I Have To Make A Carpal Tunnel Claim?
Usually you need to make a carpal tunnel compensation claim within three years of becoming aware that your injury might be linked to your work. If your injury occurred while working outside the UK, then the time limit can be shorter.
If you have any concerns or questions about the time limit for claiming compensation, call our team today on

If you make a compensation claim against your employer, they can’t discriminate against you or dismiss you because of it.
Your employer has a duty to give you proper training and protective gear to carry out your tasks. If they fail in this duty, and you’re injured as a result, then you could claim compensation.
It’s compulsory for your employer to have insurance for these types of issues. Any compensation you receive would be paid by their insurer so you shouldn’t feel you can’t make a claim against them. Our solicitors have helped many people with these types of claims and we’ll make sure you’re comfortable and have the support you need.
How Much Compensation Can I Claim For A Carpal Tunnel Injury?
The amount of compensation you can claim for a carpal tunnel injury will depend on your individual circumstances. To work out how much compensation you’ll get our lawyers will look at things like:
The seriousness of your injury
Your current and future loss of earnings
Any medical and travel expenses you've had to pay
Your care and support needs – both now and in the future.
