Ulnar neuropathy, also known as cubital tunnel syndrome (CTS), is a long-lasting condition causing numbness and pain in the ring and little fingers. It’s caused by repeated pressure or strain on the elbow and forearm. If you've damaged your ulnar nerve at work, our solicitors could help you claim compensation.
Can I Claim Against My Employer For Cubital Tunnel Syndrome?
Your employer has a duty to give you proper training and protective gear to carry out your tasks. If, you’ve been injured because they haven’t done this, you could claim compensation.
To make a claim, you’ll need to show your injury happened because your employer didn’t follow correct procedures or safety precautions. Our solicitors have helped many people with these types of claims and we’ll gather evidence to show they didn’t protect you.
Your employer is required to have insurance for these types of issues, so any compensation is paid by their insurer so you shouldn’t feel you can’t claim against them.
How Long Do I Have To Make A Cubital Tunnel Claim?
Usually you need to make a CTS compensation claim within three years of becoming aware that your injury could 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 time limits for claiming compensation, call our team today on

The amount of compensation you could receive for cubital tunnel syndrome will depend on your individual circumstances. To work out how much compensation you could 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.
We’ll make sure the compensation you receive is enough to cover any expenses you’ve had to pay and anything you’ll have to pay in future to help with your illness.
Can I Make A No Win No Fee Ulnar Neuropathy Claim?
Most ulnar nerve damage claims we handle are on a No Win No Fee basis. This means that there’s nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.*
We’ll discuss other funding options with you too, like Legal Expenses Insurance (LEI) or if you’re covered through any trade union membership. We’ll explain each process clearly and advise which we think is most suitable for you.
