Our bodies aren’t designed for factory work or office jobs where we must repeat the same motions over and over again. Those actions can strain muscles and tendons, even when there is no heavy lifting involved. In fact, an activity as basic as typing can cause a debilitating condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. This injury affects the median nerve, which runs the length of the arm, passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, and ends in the hand. Carpal tunnel symptoms such as tingling and numbness in the fingers and pain in the wrist and hand are common reasons for extended absences from work.
We have successfully helped injured workers get workers’ comp benefits from their employers for these and other types of repetitive motion injuries:
If you’ve suffered one of these injuries or another condition related to your work activity, we will seek the compensation you deserve for medical costs, lost wages, and other losses covered by workers’ compensation.
