Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Attorneys

Millions of people nationwide suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is what’s called a repetitive stress injury, which is an injury caused over time by performing the same motion time and time again. For carpal tunnel syndrome, the repetitive motion can be typing (secretarial, data-entry, etc.), but it occurs in other types of work, as well. Assembly line workers are especially susceptible to this type of injury.

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome typically include numbness and tingling in the hands and wrists, sometimes with pain that can travel up the arm. Workers suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome also notice clumsiness when handling objects and they might drop things often.

If you suspect you have carpal tunnel syndrome, one of the first steps is to see a doctor. Hopefully you can find a physician who specializes in this type of injury or at least has experience diagnosing and treating carpal tunnel syndrome. There are tests – nerve conduction studies or EMGs – to determine whether the syndrome exists, although tests can be inconclusive. When talking to your doctor about your symptoms, describe your job and how you use your hands at work.

If your job causes or aggravates carpal tunnel syndrome, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation. This means that you can get benefits to help you pay for treatment and to compensate you for time off work. If you pursue a workers’ compensation case, your employer may have a say in choosing your medical provider.

Early diagnosis can help you avoid surgery down the road. Other treatments include wrist splints, medication to reduce swelling, or cortisone injections. If surgery is required, it usually is an outpatient procedure.

FINDING THE RIGHT INJURY ATTORNEY

fight the denial

An experienced work injury attorney can help you navigate the system and will know the best approach to take if your benefits are denied. The insurance company will deny your claim if they can. Sometimes, you have to fight to get your medical bills covered, or to be declared permanently disabled. An attorney will protect your interests, with the goal of getting you full benefits.

injury experience

When hiring a workers’ compensation attorney, we recommend looking for someone who focuses their practice on helping injured workers. If possible, look for an attorney who has experience with your particular type of injury. Other important things to look for: many years of experience, a good reputation among judges and other attorneys, great customer service, and a history of past success in getting benefits for injured workers.
