Carpal Tunnel Workers' Comp
Ohio Workers’ Compensation Attorney for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
According to the Mayo Clinic, “the carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway surrounded by bones and ligaments on the palm side of the hand.” As such, carpal tunnel syndrome is a type of injury that is caused by pressure on the median nerve found within the carpal tunnel. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand, wrist, and arm.
Is Carpal Tunnel a Work-Related Injury?
Carpal tunnel is often the result of a repetitive stress injury (also known as a repetitive motion injury). Repetitive stress injuries are frequent in the workplace and are brought on by repeating the same action. Working on an assembly line, regularly carrying large objects, or even typing on a keyboard are all examples of these tasks. As such, if repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel occur on the job, the employee has suffered a work-related injury.
Does Carpal Tunnel Qualify for Workers’ Comp?
If the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation determines that carpal tunnel syndrome occurred due to your job, an injured worker is entitled to certain workers’ compensation benefits. Such benefits include compensation for lost wages and payment of medical expenses.
If you suffer carpal tunnel syndrome stemming from repetitive motion injuries while performing your job duties, it is always in your best interest to hire an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to help prove that your carpal tunnel syndrome is work-related and ensure you receive the benefits you are entitled to.
