Philadelphia Carpal Tunnel Work Injury & Workers Comp Lawyer

Table of Contents

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is also known as median nerve compression and it is a condition that results in numbness and weakness in the hand. It can be cause by repetitive typing or repetitive assembly line work or similar other activities, day in and day out.

    If you have carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive work activities- or from a traumatic (sudden) injury, then you are entitled to Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation benefits.

    Many insurance companies deny carpal tunnel claims. You should hire an experienced PA Work Comp Lawyer to file a Claim Petition if you were denied.

    If you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome from job related activities, call Philadelphia Carpal Tunnel Lawyer Michael Cardamone for a free evaluation. I have extensive experience with cases involving this condition, with great success.

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is frequently defended by Employer/Insurers in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation cases. The condition can be caused suddenly, or from repetitive work activities. An EMG study will reveal the condition, in addition to clinical exam. To have a valid claim, a doctor must opine that the work accident/activity caused the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome within a reasonable degree of medical certainty. (not absolute certainty).

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in a Pennsylvania Work Comp Case

    In many cases, the IME doctor, hired by the Employer/Insurer will allege that the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was caused by the injured worker’s weight, diabetes, or sex (i.e., it’s more prevalent in women). It will be up to the Work Comp Judge to determine which doctor is more credible. Needless to say, this condition spawns a significant amount of litigation in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation cases. The mechanism of injury- i.e., what the injured worker was doing when they experienced the symptoms- is a critical part of the case, as in any PA work comp case. This will be the foundation for the doctors’ opinions.

    Fortunately, most people do well after a Carpal Tunnel Release- the surgery to address Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Some doctors don’t even prescribe physical therapy after the surgery as many people recover in a few months.

    What if your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Claim is Denied?

    Many insurance companies deny carpal tunnel claims. But it is your right and you should hire an experienced PA Work Comp Lawyer to file a Claim Petition if you were denied.

    Do not let workmens comp have the final say.  A denied clam is not the last word. A Judge will decide your case but a petition must be filed. There are important time lines with petitions so speak to a Pennsylvania Work Comp, Carpal Tunnel Attorney. Find out what PA workers’ comp act offers you in perks and file a claim accordingly. A skilled attorney can help you fight your carpal tunnel syndrome case with evidence and strong argument.

    "[They] did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time."

    "I recently had a work related injury and was receiving Workers' Compensation (medical benefits only). Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

    "Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care. If you want someone you can trust, who communicates every step of the way, will fight for you and make sure you win your case, he is it! I will refer all my family and friends to him. Thank you so much Mike, for everything. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in helping me."

You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
