Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Experienced Arizona Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Carpal tunnel syndrome can result from a wide variety of repetitive work activities. If you are injured or unable to work due to the numbness, tingling and pain that come with carpal tunnel syndrome, you are eligible for workers' compensation under Arizona law.

These injuries can be challenging to prove in order to obtain workers' compensation benefits because they are repetitive injuries, rather than the result of a sudden accident. If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome or another repetitive stress injury, Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C., can help you obtain the benefits to which you are entitled. Our firm has Phoenix carpal tunnel syndrome attorneys who have helped thousands of injured workers obtain the benefits to which they are entitled. We do not charge attorney's fees until you are awarded benefits.

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury that is caused by compression or pinching of the median nerve, one of the main nerves in the wrist. It can result in pain, numbness and tingling in the hand, wrist and elbow. Usually, symptoms start gradually.

You are at an increased risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome if you perform repetitive motions with your hand or wrist, such as:

  • Typing
  • Assembly line work
  • Using vibrating tools
  • Work in check out lines
  • Using vibrating tools

If you are injured, notify a supervisor about your problem and make sure you tell the supervisor that you believe your injury is related to your job. Tell your medical care providers that you believe your injury is related to your work.
