Champaign County Carpal Tunnel Injury Attorney

Schuyler County workers' comp lawyer for carpal tunnel injuries

Lawyers for Work-Related Wrist and Hand Injuries in Champaign, Springfield, and Bloomington

While workers can experience many different conditions that affect their ability to perform their jobs, the most common types of injuries are those that affect hands and wrists. Even though these conditions may seem minor when compared to more traumatic work injuries, they can still cause a great deal of pain and discomfort, and they can affect a person's ability to continue doing work-related tasks. Those who have experienced carpal tunnel syndrome or other types of injuries to the hands and wrists will want to understand their options for receiving workers' compensation benefits.

At Kanoski Bresney, our lawyers have been working with victims of work-related injuries for more than 40 years, and we can help you understand your rights to compensation in these types of cases. We have helped our clients obtain over $100 million for injuries in the workplace, and we can make sure you take the right steps to pursue a claim and receive benefits that address your medical care and loss of income. We pledge to give you respect, response, and results as we assist with your case.

Receiving Compensation for a Carpal Tunnel Injury

The median nerve, which is one of the primary nerves that control the muscles in the hand, passes through the bones in the wrist in a location known as the carpal tunnel. When the wrist bones pinch or put stress on this nerve, this can lead to numbness or tingling in the hand or fingers, difficulty controlling the muscles of the hand, problems with gripping or holding items, or pain that can extend through the hand and wrist and even throughout the arm and up to the shoulder. When left untreated, these injuries can lead to permanent damage to the nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the hands and wrists.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury that often affects people who regularly type on a computer keyboard while working or who perform other fine motor tasks with their hands. It can affect cashiers, assembly line workers, people who use construction tools, mechanics, agricultural workers, painters, chefs, musicians, and professional drivers who operate commercial trucks, buses, taxis, or other vehicles.

Due to the pain and loss of fine motor control that a person can experience following a carpal tunnel injury, they may be unable to continue working at the same level as they were able to before being injured. Treatment for these injuries may involve the use of a splint that restricts movement in the hands and wrists, surgeries that require significant recovery time, or restrictions on movements or activities that could inflame an injury.

Employees who suffer carpal tunnel injuries due to the work they perform should be eligible to receive workers' compensation. In addition to covering medical expenses, these benefits may also address the loss of income due to a temporary disability or a permanent condition that affects a victim's ability to return to work. Unfortunately, employers or insurance companies may attempt to deny workers' comp benefits by claiming that an injury is not work-related. In these cases, victims will want to work with an attorney who can help demonstrate that work activities were a direct cause of carpal tunnel injuries and ensure that a person receives the benefits they deserve.
