Carpal tunnel syndrome is a serious and painful condition that is easier to prevent than to cure. Many different kinds of repetitive hand movements at work can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, which is a compression of the median nerve at the wrist.From factory assembly workers, to meatpackers, to office workers using computer keyboards or mice, maids, chefs, repetitive stress injuries can result in numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle atrophy in the hand and fingers.
If you have suffered a carpal tunnel injury at work, workers’ compensation is supposed to be there for you. You are entitled to be compensated for medical treatment, wrist braces, rehabilitation, permanent work restrictions and disability, and lost wages. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get the money you need without a workers’ compensation lawyer to represent you. The sooner you talk to us, the better we can protect your rights to workers’ compensation benefits. Your initial consultation is always free.
