Recover From Your Carpal Tunnel Injury

If you work with your hands, you may be susceptible to carpal tunnel syndrome. The median nerve runs from your forearm to your hand. Repetitive motions from typing, sewing, driving, using hand tools, assembly-line work and many other job-related duties can cause inflammation, stress or may pinch the median nerve, leading to injury. Carpal tunnel injuries can be debilitating. We understand how painful this kind of repetitive stress injury can be. We fight for workers to obtain compensation for lost wages, medical costs and rehabilitation services under Massachusetts’ workers’ compensation laws.

Repetitive Motion And Pinched Nerves In Carpal Tunnel Injuries

Repeat motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel, are common in the workplace. Left untreated, the damage to the nerve may lead to permanent disability. If you are experiencing the symptoms of carpal tunnel, it is important that you obtain medical attention. Common symptoms include:

  • Loss of strength and dexterity in the fingers
  • Numbness, tingling or burning sensations in the hand, wrist and forearm
  • Radiating pain from the hand to the elbow

If you are unable to work, or are missing intermittent days due to the pain associated with a pinched nerve, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. Employers are required to provide these important benefits. Because a repetitive stress injury develops over time, employers and insurance companies often deny that a carpal tunnel problem is work-related.

We stand up for workers throughout the workers’ compensation process. We can negotiate a settlement with your insurance provider and, if necessary, fight for your rights before the Department of Industrial Accidents and in court to obtain the full benefits to which you are entitled.
