Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A New York Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Lawyer Is Well-Equipped to Pursue Compensation

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful hand and arm condition caused by a pinched nerve on the underside of the wrist. Though it is a common health problem for computer data entry workers, administrative assistants and anyone who types on a keyboard at work, it can afflict anyone whose work involves continuously repeated hand and wrist motions. Garment factory assembly line workers, welders, carpenters, hospital workers and inventory stocking employees can all develop CTS. But simply filing a workers compensation claim doesn’t always lead to restitution and the time off from work that is often needed to heal. It takes having a tough New York carpal tunnel syndrome attorney by your side to ensure that you get every penny you have coming to you. You deserve proper treatment, whether it’s carpal tunnel surgery, physical therapy, wrist braces and/or vocational rehabilitation.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway on the palm side of the wrist, which protects a main nerve to the hand and nine tendons that bend the fingers. Compression of this nerve causes the numbness, pain, swelling and hand weakness that characterize carpal tunnel syndrome. One of many repetitive stress injuries that can affect the wrist, carpel tunnel can impact your entire life, making it excruciating to do the simplest daily activities, at work and at home. Lifting a heavy box, twisting a screwdriver, pushing a wheelchair, even folding a shirt can become too painful to tolerate.
