What is Trigger Finger?
Trigger finger is the term given to the condition which causes your finger or your thumb to lock into a bent position. When the finger or thumb unlocks again it goes back into a straightened position – looking, as the name suggests like a trigger of a gun. Trigger finger is an industrial injury usually associated with those who frequently use power tools that require your finger to remain in a bent position. Common symptoms include pain, tingling and weakness in the hands.If youve developed Trigger Finger due to negligence Mercury Legal Online will help you claim compensation. We will:

Are you suffering because of your job?
The term industrial disease is a very broad one and covers a number of different illnesses and complaints, many of which you can find details of on our site under the specific tabs at the top of this page. While we all conjure up different ideas in our heads at the mention of ‘industrial diseases’ it would probably be fair to say that the images most of us bring to mind are those of dust caked coal miners or weary-looking shipyard workers trudging home after a long hard shift. At Mercury Legal Online our solicitors do of course offer legal assistance to workers in such traditional heavy occupations but more and more we are finding that our industrial disease clients are from jobs that you would perhaps not normally associate with this category of illnesses.
Our solicitors are currently assisting thousands of industrial disease victims from a diverse range of occupations including:
- Secretaries and computer workers suffering from repetitive strain injuries.
- Cleaners who have developed dermatitis from the products they use.
- Factory workers suffering from occupational asthma.
- Assembly workers who have developed hearing problems due to noise levels.
As mentioned above we do still receive and handle enquiries from those in more traditional industrial roles such as engineering workers, road workers and construction workers but the simple fact is that occupational diseases can affect anybody in any job at any time.
At Mercury Legal Online the advice we give is free of charge and we guarantee that our solicitors will only accept cases on a no up front fees basis. If you think that you may be suffering from a condition as a result of your working environment – even if you haven’t been to a doctor about it – contact us now to see if you may be entitled to make an industrial disease claim.
