Minnesota Lawyers for the Injured Workers
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome  

Minneapolis Carpel Tunnel Syndrome Attorneys

Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common repetitive stress injuries. It is a wrist injury suffered by repeating the same hand motions day after day. Commonly, this condition is associated with office workers and others who spend their days at computers typing. In reality though, it is just as easily suffered by factory and industrial workers who work on assembly lines or use the same tool in the same way every workday.

Help For Sufferers Of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

At Midwest Disability, our Minneapolis carpal tunnel syndrome lawyers help people throughout Minnesota overcome these injuries by getting the compensation they need. We bring more than 50 years of combined experience to these cases. What does this experience mean to you? It means we know and can proactively prepare for the objections that the employer and the insurance company may make when they see the workers' comp claim. Our attorneys have an impressive record of overcoming those objections.

Our goal is to make certain you get all of the benefits you deserve under the workers' compensation law. We want to address all of the medical costs associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. We want to make sure you are compensated for lost wages as well.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Numbness, tingling, burning and pain in the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
  • Shocking sensations in the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
  • Pain or tingling radiating from the forearm to the shoulder
  • Weakness in the hand
  • Difficulty grasping or holding objects

Most symptoms of carpal tunnel develop slowly without any specific injury and worsen over time if left untreated. While mild cases of carpal tunnel syndrome may be treated through bracing and physical therapy if diagnosed early, severe cases may require surgery to avoid irreversible damage.

Common Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by a wide range of factors, though many cases are connected to repetitive, work-related activities. Repeated motions such as typing, handling vibrating power tools, operating a cash register, or pushing, slicing, or pressing objects without rest can all contribute to the development of carpal tunnel syndrome over time. Other factors such as age, gender, arthritis, pregnancy, and diabetes can also increase a person's likelihood of developing this condition.

Jobs which involve repetitive motions linked to carpal tunnel include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Assembly line work
  • Keyboarding / office occcupations
  • Construction

If You Have A Long-Term Disability Policy

Many people purchase long-term disability policies, either through employers or privately. If you have one of these policies and you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome that prevents you from working, we may be able to help you get benefits you are entitled to under your policy. You paid for this policy. Now is the time for it to do what you paid for.
