Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Workers’ Compensation for Repetitive Motion Injuries

Not all workplace injuries occur in a single incident or mishap.  Some workplace injuries occur little by little over a long period of time.  While they may not happen in an instant, these injuries can have very real and potentially long-term effects on both an employee’s health and the employee’s ability to perform his or her job.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is an example of this type of workplace injury.  Over an extended period of time, continued and repetitive use of the hands can cause nerve compression and pinching.  This in turn can lead to numbness, tingling, pain, loss of grip strength, and loss of dexterity in the wrist and hands.

Ohio law recognizes carpal tunnel syndrome as an occupational disease for which workers’ compensation benefits may be available.  With one of the area’s leading workers compensation law practices, the attorneys of Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA are here to help you file or appeal your denied carpal tunnel workers’ compensation claim.

Contact us now to discuss your injuries or claims if you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome or are unable to perform your job functions due to hand or wrist injury.

Employees at Risk

Carpal tunnel syndrome affects employees in a multitude of professions.  Because carpel tunnel syndrome can occur as the result of hundreds or even thousands of small, repetitive motions, many occupational demands can cause an employee to develop the disease.

Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers can assist employees suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome developed in any industry, including:

  • Manufacturing and Assembly-Line Work
  • Mechanical
  • Construction
  • Painting and Other Labor
  • Office Work
  • Sewing and Other Handcrafts

If you or your loved one developed carpal tunnel as the result of your employment, benefits may be available to assist you.  Call or email us today for a free consultation and to learn how we can assist you with your workers’ compensation claim.
