Carpel tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve—which runs from
the forearm into the palm of the hand—becomes pressed and squeezed
at the wrist, making the canal smaller and causing a nerve irritation
that is quite painful.
Perhaps you spend long hours in the day typing on a computer keyboard,
working on the assembly line, or using a vibrating tool on the construction
site. The underlying commonality of these different activities is the
repetitive motion of making the same hand or wrist movements over and
over again. On the other hand, carpal tunnel syndrome can also be caused
by trauma, such as a car accident or work-related accident that results
in broken bones, sprains, or strains.
If you have been diagnosed with this condition, you may have a valid legal
claim depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury. For instance,
if your job requires repetitive motions or activities and you’ve
experienced symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, then you may have grounds
to file a
workers’ compensation claim. If your carpal tunnel condition was caused by an accident unrelated
to your job, such as a car collision, you may pursue a
personal injury claim against the negligent party.
