Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Ontario Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Lawyer

Over time, repetitive use of the hands can cause compression of the median nerve in the wrist, developing into carpal tunnel syndrome. Individuals who repeatedly type or otherwise use their hands repetitively are at risk for developing carpal tunnel syndrome.

Women are much more likely to develop carpal tunnel syndrome than men. This is partially attributable to the fact that physiologically, women's wrists are smaller than men's. Therefore, there is less room within the anatomy of a wrist for the median nerve to pass through. Inflammation in that area can cause compression.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can make it impossible and dangerous to work. Continuation of the repetitive motion that caused carpal tunnel syndrome can do further damage to nerves, hands, and wrists. If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and are unable to work, talk to an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer to learn about your options for seeking disability benefits.

At the Law Offices of Judith S. Leland, we offer a free consultation where we can talk to you about your specific legal options. If you are suffering due to carpal tunnel syndrome or another work-related repetitive stress injury, please contact us.
