An HGV fitter has received a compensation payment after being diagnosed with vibration induced carpal tunnel syndrome. He was paid the compensation by his employer, TNT Express UK Limited.

65 year old Harry Alcock had begun to feel numbness in his hands but hadn’t realised that his condition was serious. However, the numbness began to get worse and started to interfere with some of his hobbies, such as golf and gardening. He also started to have difficulty sleeping and became aware of increased sensitivity in his hands. He sought medical advice and was told that he had carpal tunnel syndrome and that it was irreversible.

His job had involved servicing lorries using vibrating tools and he had been doing this job for around 17 years. He decided to make a claim for compensation due to the fact that his employer had failed to protect him from exposure to the tools. He managed to agree a settlement with his employer’s insurer and received an undisclosed compensation payment.
