Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a serious and painful condition that affects the wrist and hand. Without proper rest and treatment, it can eventually necessitate surgery. Many medical experts believe that repetitive stress motions cause or exacerbate the syndrome, especially if you spend the majority of your day on these tasks. It causes numbness, tingling, burning, and pain in the fingers that receive sensation from the median nerve. Additionally, a person may have periodic shock-like feelings in the same fingers, which might travel up the forearm and toward the shoulder.
If your job caused a repetitive stress workplace injury like CTS, you can’t really sue your employer. Instead, you’ll need to file a workers’ compensation claim
If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and your symptoms are severe enough to prevent you from working, it may be considered as a disability and you can file workers’ compensation claim for disability benefits.
Employers have a responsibility to reduce the risk of workers suffering from repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. If they have been negligent in providing the correct training, tools or a safe working environment, you are entitled to claim carpal tunnel workers’ compensation.
