Kansas City Carpel Tunnel Syndrome Attorney
Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when certain tissues in the wrist swell and put pressure on the median nerve. It most commonly affects the thumb, index, and middle fingers, causing:
- Difficulty grasping objects
Work-related carpel tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive tasks involving motion to the wrist, such as typing or assembly line work. Treatment for carpel tunnel syndrome can include immobilization of the injured hand, medication and orthopedic care. If you are experiencing carpel tunnel syndrome because of the work you do, contact a Kansas City workers' compensation lawyer to discuss filing a claim for workers' compensation. You may be entitled to financial help to cover the costs of your medical treatment and lost wages if your injury has prevented you from working.
