Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Orlando
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a hand and arm condition that causes numbness, tingling, and other symptoms. It is caused by a pinched nerve in the wrist. The anatomy of your wrist, underlying health problems, as well as repetitive movement (often caused by daily work activities) can all trigger carpel tunnel syndrome.
If you are currently suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome caused by a work-related repetitive injury, The Trial Professionals P.A. may be able to help you seek compensation. Do not hesitate to contact an Orlando workers’ compensation lawyer at our office to learn more about the legal options available to you at this time.
About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway located on the palm side of your wrist. It protects a main nerve to your hand and the nine tendons that bend your fingers. Compression of the nerve produces the symptoms experienced by people who suffer from carpal tunnel. For most individuals, carpal tunnel syndrome can be repaired with a simple, out-patient surgery. When you feel tingling, numbness, or weakness in your wrists and hands, consult with your doctor.
Making a Workers’ Compensation Claim for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
While many cases of carpal tunnel syndrome are unrelated to work activities, many more are the result of repetitive, on-the-job tasks. Repetitive work that often causes carpal tunnel syndrome includes:
- Typing on the computer
- Continual movements without breaks, i.e. pressing / pushing / slicing / etc.
- Using a cash register
Severe cases of carpal tunnel syndrome will require surgery. Whether you are suffering from a mild or serious case, if you can prove that work-related tasks caused the problem, you will be entitled to workers’ compensation for your pain and suffering.
