Philadelphia Lawyer for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a medical condition that is mainly caused by repetitive motion. It is a painful condition that affects your hand and fingers and is caused by the compression of a median nerve where it passes over the carpal bones through a passage at the front of the wrist called a sheath, alongside the flexor tendons of the hand. It may be caused by repetitive movements over a long period or by fluid retention, and is characterized by sensations of tingling, numbness, or burning. The irritation of the transverse carpal ligament is what causes the process to begin. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our attorneys have a solid understanding of this type of medical condition and the causes for it. If unattended, the condition could lead to sever issues.
When this syndrome is caused by repetitive motion, it usually stems from an on-the-job injury. In the event that you begin to feel symptoms, immediately report them to your supervisor so that if they become worse, you can qualify for Workers Compensation benefits. At the Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, PC, our attorneys and staff handle Workers Compensation. If you or a loved one believe that they are suffering from a work related onset of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, call our office for a free consultation.
