Epicondylitis Compensation

Epicondylitis is a condition caused by an inflammation of the epicondyle, which is the area immediately around the elbow joint. It is broadly divided into two main types:

  • - Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow – the most common form of this condition, affecting the outer part of the elbow
  • - Medial epicondylitis, or golfer’s elbow – affecting the inner part of the elbow

Croftons Solicitors can help you claim compensation for epicondylitis and many other types of repetitive strain injury.

Causes and Symptoms of Epicondylitis

Despite the terms ‘tennis elbow’ and ‘golfer’s elbow’, playing sport is not necessarily the cause of this condition.

Any repetitive movement can cause epicondylitis, including many tasks carried out in the workplace, from typing to heavy lifting.

The symptoms of epicondylitis are normally discomfort in the elbow and forearm, particularly during any activity that puts strain on the muscles in this area.

For example, lifting, writing, picking up smaller objects and opening a door can all be painful.

Making a Compensation Claim

Croftons Solicitors deals with many cases where epicondylitis occurs in the workplace, and if this is caused by negligence on the part of your employer, you could be eligible for compensation.

Employers should provide the correct equipment and training to ensure industrial diseases are prevented, and if they fail to do this then you are more likely to have a successful claim.

Proving this negligence is key to the success of your claim, and our experts will explore every aspect of your case to see whether or not you are likely to be eligible for compensation.

In some instances, epicondylitis can be serious enough to necessitate time off work, and this can result in you missing out on wages you would otherwise have earned. This is just one factor that will be noted when deciding on what your compensation amount should be.
