Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Nashville Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Lawyer

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be very debilitating to those who suffer from it. It is one of various occupational hazards for workers whose jobs involve repetitive motion. It normally develops over time, but at some point, a carpal tunnel syndrome sufferer may lose dexterity and be unable to continue with ordinary activities because of pain. Examples of work-related activities that may trigger carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) for many workers include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Sewing
  • Cleaning
  • Food processing
  • Demolition and construction activities
  • Use of vibrating tools such as jack hammers
  • Word processing
  • Data entry

A worker who suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome may require medical treatment, possibly including surgery. He or she may be unable to work for some length of time. It is important to get a doctor's opinion to confirm that work activities most likely caused the carpal tunnel syndrome or caused it to progress to a point of pain, incapacity and a need for surgery.

When CTS is a result of work activities, it is considered a workplace injury. An employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier should normally cover carpal tunnel syndrome treatment and necessary time off work. However, it is not uncommon for workers' compensation insurance companies to deny claims on the basis that a worker's CTS was pre-existing, or was caused by activities in daily life, apart from work. Overcoming this type of challenge is what we do well at the Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello.
