Tenosynovitis Compensation Claims
If you have suffered from work related tenosynovitis, you may be eligible to make tenosynovitis compensation claims. Tenosynovitis is a kind of repetitive strain injury in which the fluid filled sheath known as the synovium become inflamed. This fluid filled sheath surrounds the tendons and it usually occurs alongside tendonitis.
Some of the common symptoms include bruising, pain, swelling, difficulty moving the joint, etc. This problem may occur in any area, but is most common in the hands and wrists. During the early stages, the symptoms may diminish when you do not perform the same repetitive activity over a period of time. But, as soon as you start with the repetitive movement, the condition will worsen. Depending on the extent of the injury, the symptoms may last for few days to even months.
Workers who are required to perform repetitive movements and activities such as typing and writing have a greater risk of developing this condition. Workplaces where workers are required to perform repetitive motions must have safety measures in place to reduce or eliminate the risk of injuries.
It is the responsibility of the employers to carry out risk assessments and also adopt safety measures to protect the health and safety of workers. In such occupations, workers should be given adequate training and sufficient breaks so they can perform their tasks without straining their body parts. If an employer fails to provide his workers with a safe working environment, he may be held liable for injuries suffered at the workplace.
Some of the occupations which place workers at a risk of developing tenosynovitis include:
- construction workers
- operators working on punch machines
