Carpal tunnel injuries are repetitive motion injuries that people in certain professions frequently suffer from. Office workers and assembly line workers are often afflicted with carpal tunnel injuries and other wrist injuries over a period of weeks, months or even years. If a person has pre-existing carpal tunnel syndrome and works in one of these professions, on the job tasks may make the condition permanently worse.
Performing your daily job duties and even your day to day duties at home can be quite difficult if you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. You may live with chronic pain, and may even require surgery. Medical care for those who suffer with this condition can be very costly and is often an expense that many people cannot afford. If your injuries occurred on the job, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim, however, doing so is not always easy. Many employers are not supportive of employees who need to file a worker’s comp claim and during a difficult time like this, it is in your best interest to have someone on your side who will advocate for your right to the full and fair compensation you deserve for your injuries.
