Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Can Hinder Your Ability To Work

A repetitive stress-related injury can have a serious impact on your life. Should your job result in the onset of carpal tunnel syndrome, you may find yourself unable to perform tasks that were once routine. When your livelihood is on the line due to such a condition, it is important that you seek out effective legal representation.

At our firm, McCormick & Vilushis LLC, we help individuals in the Erie, Pennsylvania, community as they file workers’ compensation claims. If carpal tunnel syndrome has affected your ability to work, our attorneys can help you learn more about your legal options.

Understanding How This Condition Can Affect You

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that can make the use of your hands and arms difficult. When the median nerve in your hand is compressed by the tunnel that surrounds it, it can reduce the feeling in your fingers. This condition can be debilitating and, in some cases, painful.

Some jobs that can result in the development of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Mechanic
  • Typist
  • Factory assembly line worker
  • Carpenter
  • Painter
  • Gardner
  • Baker

Any profession that calls for the repetitive use of your hands can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. When this happens, your employer may be at fault for fostering dangerous working conditions. At our firm, our lawyers can help you hold negligent parties accountable for your injuries.
