Tenosynovitis is a condition classed as a Work-related Upper Limb Disorder (also known as Repetitive Strain Injury) which can result in loss of grip and effective use of the fingers. It is sometimes known as Tennis Elbow.
A doctor will diagnose tenosynovitis when there has been inflammation of the synovial sheaths of tendons. This causes pain but often the pain can dissipate following a period of rest. However, it can cause significant pain and discomfort resulting in time off work for some sufferers.
If you have suffered Tenosynovitis as a result of your working conditions, it may be possible to make a tenosynovitis compensation claim.
Tenosynovitis can sometimes occur when an individual undertakes a job in the workplace which requires a lot of repetitive action in a particular part of the body. Some of the jobs where tenosynovitis is a potential risk include:
Operating computers or machinery
Working in construction
Product packing or assembly
Typing or writing
Any other profession that requires the regular repetitive movement of the arms, hands, wrists or fingers.
If you have been diagnosed with tenosynovitis and you believe your condition is a consequence of your job, you may have a claim for compensation.
Making a Claim For Tenosynovitis Compensation
To make a successful claim you would need to demonstrate that your employer failed to take steps to reduce the risk of you developing tenosynovitis or RSI. A personal injury lawyer will be able to help you with this aspect of your case. However, you will need to provide information about how your workplace caused or has affected your condition.
In some cases, we may ask that you attend a medical examination in order to verify your condition and find further evidence of the link between it and your employer’s negligence. This is a routine part of most work-related injury claims.
