Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Is it a Work Injury?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful and debilitating condition that can affect anyone who performs repetitive work with their hands, fingers, and wrists. People with carpal tunnel syndrome often develop numbness and pain that require expensive medical treatment and make it difficult to perform their jobs.

We’re one of the largest law firms with Workers’ Compensation attorneys in Minnesota, and it’s our goal to help you get the information you need to get your life back to normal.

Client Success Story: Client Receives Settlement for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A man with pain in his hands and wrists contacted our law firm after he was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel caused by his work activities. Our client had previously experienced an increase in pain in his hands after doing some construction work outside of work, but the pain was not debilitating.

Following an Independent Medical Examination, the insurer claimed the carpal tunnel arose out of a personal condition, not related to work. Our clients’ doctor believed that his work environment caused his repetitive motion injury.

Our team helped the client obtain the medical evidence needed from his doctors to demonstrate that work-related repetitive tasks had caused his carpal tunnel syndrome. Our team of attorneys successfully obtained a settlement for the work injury.

Who gets carpal tunnel syndrome?

Occupations that may put workers at risk of developing carpal tunnel symptoms include:

  • Data Entry Workers
    Many office workers use computers during the day. But some workers, such as data entry specialists, are required to input large amounts of data all day, every day. This can cause strain in their wrists and may lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Assembly Line Workers
    People who work on assembly lines and use fine motor skills to assemble equipment or objects are at risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome because of the repetitive motions of their hands and wrists.
  • Musicians
    Some musicians, including guitarists, pianists, and violinists, are susceptible to developing carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if they are required to practice for hours every day.

No matter how you developed carpal tunnel syndrome, the Minnesota attorneys at Fields Law know how much it can interfere with your life and job. If you have any questions about your condition and what benefits you may be eligible to receive, give us a call. There’s no appointment necessary, and your case is always confidential. Our workers compensation attorneys in Minnesota are proud to be a resource for people who were hurt at work.

SETTLEMENTS AND RECOVERIES IN ALL CASES DEPEND ON SPECIFIC FACTUAL AND LEGAL CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH ARE UNIQUE TO EACH CLIENT’S CASE. PAST CASE RESULTS ARE NOT A GUARANTEE OR PREDICTION OF SIMILAR RESULTS IN FUTURE CASES WHICH THE FIELDS LAW FIRM AND ITS LAWYERS MAY UNDERTAKE.

I had the pleasure to work with Michael and Annie on my LTD case. When my claim was denied by the insurance carrier, Michael didn't hesitate to take them on with an appeal. He worked diligently on the appeal and ultimately won this for me. Mind you, this wasn't a huge case but he treated me like it was and as if I was the only case he was representing. He kept me abreast of vital information, it was clear that he knew his stuff and wasn't afraid to take on the big insurance company. Michael was much more than I ever expected given that our relationship was entirely remote, handled by telephone and email only. Not only is he a strong lawyer, he treated me with compassion and respect. I am beyond pleased with him and the Fields Law team. Michael cares about his clients and he gets the job done for them because he knows how impactful an injury can be to both a person's well-being and their financial security. I highly recommend Michael and Fields Law whether you are local to their Minnesota offices or out of state like myself.read more

Fields Law Firm is great. Patrick Kramer, my lawyer, is fantastic. He and his legal assistant Samantha K. have handled my case for several years. They have kept me informed every step of the way. They are both easy to contact. I have both of their phone numbers and email addresses and they respond promptly to any messages I leave. Without their help I would not have been able to get the disability company to fulfill their promises. It is a relief to leave all the dealings with the disability insurance company in their hands.read more

Field Law Firm was great my lawyer Zach Schmoll was more than I could ask for. He always kept me in the loop and explain everything perfectly, got back to me whenever I called less than 24 hrs and was a extremely nice guy. This guy is young and knows what he is doing so please don’t let the age fool you. I had a wonderful experience with Field Law and will refer anyone with legal matters to them.read more

Fields Law Firm is simply the very best when it comes to representing you & fighting for your rights! They are a "10 Star" Law Firm hands down! Michael Kemmmitt & Sarah Christensen were simply outstanding to work with. They took over my long term disability case after I was being denied my benefits & gave me the moral support & law experience that I needed to win my case. They were supportive throughout my case & they will fight tooth & nail to assure your rights are not being denied. It is so rare to find a law firm that treats you like YOU are the most important person to them. I HIGHLY recommend Fields Law Firm. They are truly advocates for justice.read more

Michael and Samantha were always giving me updates in a very timely manner. They were very good at getting back with me if I had questions, and they didn't have the answer at the time of our discussion. They were very thorough in their handling of my case, and we received a positvie ruling due to their efficiency and expertise. Thank you very much Michael and Samantha, I appreciate all that you did to help me with my case. I would definitely refer people to you, as well as use you in the future. Benjamin Chadwick.read more
