Diagnosed With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Not all workplace injuries are caused by accidents. Workers may also suffer repetitive stress injuries. These are especially common for office workers, construction workers and production line workers, but they can happen to anyone. Although they cause symptoms ranging from numbness to discomfort to extreme pain, getting benefits to cover repetitive stress injuries can be difficult.

Seeking Compensation For Your Workplace Injury
In addition to carpal tunnel syndrome, common work-related repetitive stress injuries include:
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
- Shoulder impingement
- Knee injuries
- Whole body vibration injuries
- Other wrist, hand or shoulder injuries
The effects of repetitive stress injuries can be debilitating. People may suffer numbness, tingling, a cold sensation, swelling or pain. In some instances, these types of injuries can lead to temporary or permanent disability. If you have become disabled due to this type of workplace injury, we can help you with Social Security Disability Insurance benefits and if applicable, long-term disability benefits, in addition to workers’ compensation.
Sometimes getting benefits for repetitive stress injuries is difficult because pinpointing the exact date of onset and/or disability is tricky. We understand these issues and can help you work through them.
