Dupuytren’s contracture compensation

Dupuytren's contracture, also known as Dupuytren's disease or claw-hand, is often a genetic disease, however, in some cases it is also caused by an injury.

In cases where an injury has lead to further difficulties or disease, you may be entitled to claim compensation from those responsible. Such claims will take into consideration the severity of your illness and the long term impact it is likely to have on your day to day.

Compensation can help you with loss of earnings, as you may have to take significant time of work, have to retrain or may be permanently unable to work.

If you believe your Dupuytren’s contracture was caused by an accident or injury, YouClaim’s experienced solicitors can help you to decide whether you should claim compensation. Call us on 0800 10 757 95 or fill in our online enquiry form.

Can I claim?

Dupuytren's contracture is a complicated and under-researched condition. Many people believe the condition is linked to manual work or excessive use of vibrating tools.

If you have been diagnosed with the disease and have either:

  • spent a large portion of your life in manual labour;
  • worked excessively with power tools over many years, or;
  • suffered a previous accident which you believe is related to the onset of Dupuytren's contracture;

it is advised you speak to a personal injury specialist to discuss your options.
