We Help Clients With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Repetitive stress injuries are a hazard in many workplaces in our fast-paced world. In factories, in offices, in hospitals and in school cafeterias, to name a few examples of often-dangerous workplaces, carpal tunnel syndrome is sometimes an outcome for employees working under stringent performance demands.
Occupations that often lead to carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- Word processing/typing/data input
- Factory manufacturing jobs
- Construction work involving vibratory tools such as jackhammers or electric sanders
- Any work that involves repetitive actions straining the hands and wrists
Carpal tunnel syndrome, like other workplace injuries, is compensable through workers’ compensation. Unlike many other types of workplace injuries, however, it is particularly challenging to prove that carpal tunnel syndrome was caused solely or primarily because of work activities. It is not uncommon for workers’ compensation insurance carriers to challenge claims of repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. fights to prove that our clients’ carpal tunnel syndrome was caused by work activities.
