Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Is A Real Injury That Can Interfere With Your Ability To Work

Chronic wrist pain, uncomfortable forearm tingling and debilitating hand weakness caused by carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) are the result of a pinched main nerve running the length of the arm, connecting the fingers and hand to the spinal cord. Workplace tasks involving hand and arm vibration, repetitive motion or overuse are common causes.

In early stages, CTS may be a mere annoyance or inconvenience. As the condition progresses, however, common daily job tasks such as typing, using hand tools or manufacturing small items may become impossible.

If you are a Georgia worker who is suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or any medical condition caused by repetitive stress or motion on the job, you are entitled to apply for medical treatment and disability wage benefits through the Georgia workers' compensation system.

The Right Lawyer Can Help You Prove Your Injury Is Work-Related

Claims for carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and other repetitive stress injuries are often denied because the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation expects hard, firm evidence that the condition is related to daily job tasks. Wearing a wrist brace isn't enough.

I know what medical issues are involved, and I know how to build a strong case for approval.
