Mr M required substantial time for rehabilitation after his tendon was severed in his work accident; Michael Lewin were able to get a compensation amount to include the extensive rehabilitation he needed.
Mr M was 27 when he withstood an injury which caused his tendon to be severed in work.
Good rehabilitation after tendon repair is crucial. The tendon repair is initially much weaker than normal and can snap if over-stressed. The repair will need to be protected by a splint for at least four weeks although the tendon will take about 12 weeks to recover full strength. In general the timing of return to work for extensor tendon repairs is a minimum of 6 weeks.
