Kansas City Carpal 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:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Weakness
  • Difficulty grasping objects

Work-related carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by repetitive tasks involving motion to the wrist, such as typing or assembly line work. Treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome can include immobilization of the injured hand, medication, and orthopedic care. If you are experiencing carpal 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.

Call us today at (913) 815-1347 to schedule your consultation.

How to Choose the Right Attorney

Choosing the right attorney to represent you when filing a workers' compensation claim can have a significant impact on the compensation you are awarded, as well as the length and type of treatment you receive. The right lawyer will help you develop a strong case by knowing exactly what medical records you need, arranging for vocational experts to testify about the job requirements for your specific position, and getting a testimony from medical experts explaining how you are now limited due to your injury.
