Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most common afflictions that lead office workers and other professionals to pursue long term disability claims. Despite being a nearly invisible disability, it can wreak havoc on the ability to type, lift, and engage in other work-related activities.
At DarrasLaw, we lend a helping hand to those who suffer from the complications of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Our focus is on making sure that all of our clients get the help they need to address their disabling condition and receive fair and just benefits.
A Typist’s Disability
Carpal Tunnel is most commonly associated with people who spend much of their day typing, including administrative assistants, writers, office managers, and marketers. However, anyone engaged in repetitive motion, such as administrative professionals, factory workers and others are also at risk.
Carpal Tunnel can cause pain in the wrist, along with tingling, weakness, and numbness in the hand. Sometimes, the symptoms can be improved with surgery, but in other cases the doctor determines that too much damage has been done. Additionally, even with surgical repair it may not be possible for you to return to the job you were doing in the past, simply because there is too much risk of damaging your wrist and hand again.
If you are unable to return to work after Carpal Tunnel surgery, or if an operation is not a possibility for you, then you may need disability benefits. Whether you are just starting the process or your claim has been denied, we can help.
A Denial Is Not The End
A delayed or denied claim should not stop you from getting the disability benefits you deserve. Our proven disability attorneys will work hard to make things right for you and your family. Call us at 800-458-4577 or send us an email to schedule your free consultation.
