No Fees Unless You Recover Compensation

Did you develop carpal tunnel syndrome because of your job?

When California employees experience an injury in the workplace or become ill due to their work, they have the right to seek benefits through their employer's workers' compensation insurance. However, some people may assume that these benefits are only reserved for injuries that are the result of work accidents, but that is not always the case.

You could have a rightful claim to workers' compensation benefits if you are suffering from the consequences of a medical condition that developed over time because of your job duties. Carpal tunnel is a type of repetitive stress injury that some workers may develop, and it could be valid grounds to seek care and support through a workers' compensation claim.

The impact of this repetitive stress injury

Carpal tunnel syndrome is an inflammation of a nerve that passes through the wrist. When there is damage to this nerve, it can be quite painful, and eventually, it can make it difficult for you to meet the demands of your job. It may be beneficial for you to understand the following about carpal tunnel syndrome:

  • People who have this medical condition can experience tingling, shooting pain in the nerves, feelings of numbness and swollen fingers and more.
  • Eventually, people with this condition could find that they have limited movement, increasing pain and difficulty doing their jobs.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome is not necessarily specific to just one profession, but people in certain jobs may be more likely to develop it. This includes manufacturing, typing, assembly line work and more.

These injuries are not easily seen, but they can have a significant impact on your life. They can be painful, debilitating and require extensive medical treatment. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a valid reason to seek financial compensation through an insurance claim. This step could allow you to secure the medical care and recompense you deserve.

Where should you start?

It's not always easy to navigate the workers' compensation claims process. It can be confusing, and some injured workers may not fully understand their rights. You have the right to seek guidance for the entire process, starting with a complete evaluation of your case.

From filing the necessary paperwork to dealing with any necessary appeals, you do not have to take one step by yourself. Carpal tunnel can have a serious impact on your ability to work, and you have the right to a full recovery.
