Carpal tunnel, or "repetitive stress injury," affects your ability to use your hands and wrists and affects them with severe pain. Carpal tunnel can afflict factory workers, office workers, and more - and it typically comes on you gradually after months or years of employment at a particular job.
California workers compensation benefits apply to expenses incurred by carpal tunnel if this condition came about due to your work duties. Surgery, therapy, medications, lost wages, and disability benefits can all apply.
But it will take the experience and skill of a lawyer conversant in proving carpal tunnel claims to establish the connection between your condition and your job beyond doubt.
