Carpal Tunnel Injuries

Woman with hand injuryWork-Related Carpal Tunnel Injuries

While some injuries on the job are caused by accidents, others are the result of repetitive strain or stress on certain areas of the body. One of these injuries is carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition in which the median nerve is compressed at the wrist, resulting in muscle weakness and pain in the forearm and hand. Carpal tunnel syndrome is typically caused by lots of hand use and repetitive activity.

If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and you are unable to work as a result, it is important to understand your rights to workers’ compensation benefits and how to pursue the benefits you deserve. At the law firm of Pulgini & Norton, LLP, our attorneys have more than 40 years of experience handling workers’ comp claims, including those stemming from repetitive use on the job.
