How To Win A Carpal Tunnel Workers' Compensation Claim

When most people think of carpal tunnel syndrome, they think of clerical and data-entry workers who spend their days working on a keyboard. In reality, repetitive motion in many different types of jobs, from cutting meat to assembly line work, can lead to this painful condition.

At the Law Offices of Katherine L. Niven & Associates, PC, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we represent all kinds of workers who develop repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. No matter how you were injured, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Founding attorney Katherine L. Niven served as chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Workers' Compensation and was a Pennsylvania workers' compensation judge.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome And Workers' Comp

Repetitive hand motions that are a part of your job can lead to excessive pressure on the median nerve, which runs from the forearm to the palm. This can lead to numbness, weakness and tingling in the hands and fingers. Eventually, you may find yourself unable to continue to work.

As long as your carpal tunnel syndrome was caused or aggravated by your work activities, you are covered by workers' compensation. Unfortunately, many employers and workers' compensation insurance carriers routinely deny carpal tunnel syndrome claims. It often takes a lawyer's help to document your claim and back it up with medical evidence.

Our lawyers can help you at any point in the workers' compensation claims process, from filing a claim to appealing a denied claim.
