Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Lawyer In Philadelphia
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a medical condition 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 that 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.
Left unattended, the condition could lead to severe issues. The irritation of the transverse carpal ligament causes the process to begin. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our attorneys have a solid understanding of this type of medical condition and its causes for it.
When this syndrome is caused by repetitive motion, it usually stems from an on-the-job injury. If you begin to feel symptoms, report them to your supervisor immediately so that you can qualify for Worker’s Compensation benefits if they worsen. At The Law Offices of Greg Prosmushkin, P.C., our attorneys, and staff handle Workers’ Compensation.
