Carpal Tunnel Injury
Office workers, tradesmen, cashiers, painters and workers in a number of other industries often suffer from a condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. It is a painful and progressive condition where the median nerve, which runs from the forearm down to the hand, is pinched or stressed. This pinching results in a feeling of swelling in the fingers, a tingling or burning sensation in the hands and decreased strength in the hands.
People suffering from carpal tunnel often dismiss their symptoms as an inevitable part of their work. This is not an insignificant workplace injury; carpal tunnel can not only affect a workers’ ability to perform even the simplest of tasks, but can eventually cause permanent damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves in the hands.
For more than 40 years, the Springfield workers’ compensation attorneys at Kanoski Bresney have vigorously protected injured workers — put our experience to work for you.
Protecting Injured Workers
Carpal tunnel is the most common work-related injury in the United States. Repetitive stress injuries like this occur so often that employees could even overlook the injuries or not make the connection between the symptoms and their work environment. We have more than 40 years of experience handling complex workers’ compensation claims, countless of which suffer from the effects of carpal tunnel syndrome. The attorneys at our law firm are prepared to prove that carpal tunnel is directly tied to repetitive use of the hands and/or wrist while working.
We have the experience and knowledge to give our clients the respect, response and results® they deserve. We work closely with medical and rehabilitative experts to determine if the carpal tunnel injury is work-related. Our role is to help clients obtain the full amount of workers’ compensation and medical treatment possible. We also help injured workers when:
- They are denied medical help
- Their employers deny that the injuries are work-related
- Insurance companies refuse to cooperate
- They have been promised compensation that never materializes
