Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a form of Work-Related Upper Limb Disorder and can also be classed as a Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
The condition is caused by the median nerve in the wrist being constricted and the thickening of tissue around it. Sometimes it is necessary to perform a decompression operation to relieve the symptoms.
If you have suffered this kind of injury then you may be wondering how much compensation for carpal tunnel syndrome. If so, use the below details as a guideline for how much you can expect in a personal injury case.
The level of compensation you will be granted depends on a few things including whether or not your condition is bilateral (affecting both sides of the body); your age; if surgery has been necessary; the level of pain experienced and if there are recurring symptoms.
Absolutely fantastic, good advice and solid support. First Personal Injury understood my personal situation and helped work around it to better my needs.
