Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Is an Injury

While carpal tunnel is one of the most common work-related injuries people suffer, it is also one of the most difficult to prove. Workers’ compensation claims for carpal tunnel are frequently denied, with employers trying to blame the employee’s condition on his or her hobbies, medications, or other medical conditions. These cases frequently require intense litigation to obtain full and adequate compensation for injured parties. If you need help with your carpal tunnel syndrome, reach out today.

What Causes Carpal Tunnel?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

People often think that office, administrative and secretarial work are the only causes of carpal tunnel syndrome. However, carpal tunnel is not limited to these types of employment. Any job that requires frequent, repeated hand movements can lead to carpal tunnel. Some of these jobs include:

  • Keying
  • Data entry
  • Hair styling
  • Factory and warehouse work
  • Working with machinery/construction work
  • Food processing
  • Assembly line work

Our attorneys have the experience to help establish that the source of your carpal tunnel stems from work-related causes rather than hobbies or other causes. We can bring a workers’ compensation claim or a third-party liability claim on your behalf, to make sure you get the best compensation possible in your case. Contact a workers' compensation lawyer today for help.

How Can a Workers' Compensation Lawyer Help Me?

A workers' compensation lawyer can be immensely helpful to workers who have developed carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) as a result of their job-related activities. Here's how:

  1. Legal Expertise: Workers' compensation laws can be complex, and navigating the process can be challenging. An experienced workers' compensation lawyer understands the laws specific to your state and can guide you through the legalities of filing a claim.
  2. Evidence Gathering: To establish your CTS as work-related, you'll need to provide evidence. A lawyer can help gather the necessary medical records, witness statements, and other documentation to support your claim.
  3. Claim Filing: Your attorney can assist in correctly filling out and filing the workers' compensation claim paperwork. Any mistakes or missing information can lead to claim denials or delays, so having an expert ensures everything is in order.
  4. Negotiation: In many cases, insurance companies may try to settle claims for less than the full amount owed. Your lawyer can negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive fair compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
  5. Appeals: If your initial claim is denied, a lawyer can help you file an appeal and represent you at workers' compensation hearings or court proceedings if necessary.
