12 Jul 1999Lincoln CountyGissingPacking bags of crispsTenosynovitisDefendant

A note of the Judgment in this matter (no official transcript is available) suggests the Plaintiff experienced pain in his left wrist after about 9 hours of a 12-hour shift of packing packets of crisps into boxes, at a rate of approximately 3,000 packets per hour. The medical experts evidently agreed that the Plaintiff suffered a discreet episode of either Tenosynovitis or Peri-tendinitis crepitans, but there is no discussion or finding relating to causation. The Plaintiff evidently failed to establish negligence or any breach of statutory duty.
