Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a nerve-related injury that can be brought on by repetitive movement, afflicting workers whose jobs require them to bend their wrists, grip objects or tools tightly, or use their fingers frequently. People with this condition experience pain, numbness, tingling or burning in the fingers, hands or wrists. Though CTS can be treated with rest, physical therapy, medication and surgery, it can stick with a person for years.
Carpal tunnel syndrome keeps some people from being able to work, which can create major financial hardship for them and their families, on top of physical pain and discomfort. Thankfully, workers' compensation can provide wage replacement and medical benefits for those who qualify.
Make sure you are maximizing your right to workers' compensation. Call our firm today at 229-269-4947 or 888-878-0491 for help with your claim. Consultations are free.
