Our Approach To Handling Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Concerns
When you come to our offices, you will work directly with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney throughout your case. We will begin with a thorough investigation of your potential claim to fully understand the nature and severity of your injuries.
Once we have reviewed you case, we take a three-part approach to helping you with your claim. First, we work to take care of your medical concerns, then we address your job situation, and finally we resolve any outstanding financial concerns.
- Medical benefits: We will work diligently to ensure that you receive the treatment you need to allow the most successful recovery. Whether your carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms can be alleviated through basic treatments like splinting and anti-inflammatory medication, frequently full recovery can only be reached through surgery.
- Job opportunities: Although carpal tunnel syndrome can develop as the result of a single traumatic incident, it is more commonly a repetitive motion injury, stemming from a long-term pattern of movement. With carpal tunnel syndrome, you may be unable to return to your prior employment. We’ll help you arrange appropriate training opportunities so that you can secure gainful employment in alternative working conditions that will not aggravate your injuries.
- Financial compensation: Until you have received treatment for your injuries and determined your future career opportunities given the limitations of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is impossible to understand the financial impact of this injury on your life. Once we have addressed your medical care and your employment situation, we will negotiate disability benefits to secure full and fair financial compensation for your injuries.
