Chicago, IL Carpal Tunnel Injury Lawyer

Carpal Tunnel Worker’s Compensation in Illinois

If you have developed carpal tunnel syndrome(CTS) as a consequence of ajob-related injury, the Chicago Illinois job site injury and workers’ compensation attorneys here at Malman Law may be able to help right away.

An injury to the median nerve of the hand, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can create pain, numbness, or paralysis. Sufferers may also experience tingling or burning in the fingers – particularly the index and middle fingers –pain in the wrists and hands, and a weakened grip. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is thought to be caused by pressure on the wrist and is sometimes confused with arthritis. But an important distinction is that carpal tunnel has been linked to jobs that require repetitive motions, such as factory or industrial work.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), has regulations in place regarding “cumulative trauma” disorders like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but the relationship between CTS and work is controversial. Insurance companies and employers will often fight such cases, so you need an advocate on your side.
