In almost any industry or profession, there are certain jobs that require workers to perform repetitive motions as part of their assigned duties. It is an unfortunate fact, however, that those continuous motions could be causing workers to experience severe pain, long-term lack of mobility and ultimately arrive at the point where they are unable to perform their designated tasks. While there are numerous injuries which can occur from repetitive work-related motions, carpal tunnel syndrome is a very common condition that people often try and simply “work through” rather than filing a workers’ compensation claim in order to be able to obtain relief from their work-related injury.
At Katz, Leidman, Freund & Herman, we understand the pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. We also know the negative effects this type of injury can have on your ability to perform basic functions such as writing, typing, cooking, driving, attending to basic hygiene matters, caring for your children and more.
