Carpal Tunnel Workers Compensation

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by multiple factors, especially repetitive motion-based actions and trauma. Speak to our expert lawyers to see if you have a carpal tunnel claim.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome refers to a compression of the median nerve when it passes through the wrist. This nerve carries the sense of touch to the thumb and the next two fingers and controls the movement of the hand muscles. When this gets affected it causes sharp and continuous pain in the arm and wrist, thus disabling full movement of the wrist and arm. The condition is progressive in nature and does have the possibility of worsening over time.

What is a carpal tunnel claim?

Different job roles require different physical motions throughout the day. Jobs with long hours of typing and working with computers, assembly line activities, operating heavy machinery or repetitive agricultural activities sometimes lead to a work-related injury i.e. carpal tunnel syndrome.

A carpal tunnel claim refers to making a worker’s compensation claim that your carpal tunnel syndrome was caused due to your employer’s negligence and inability to perform the duty of care and wellbeing.
