Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most frequent workplace injuries facing employees today.
As more workers are spending their days sitting at desks and working on various computer programs, repeated use and strain can lead to injury of the median nerve and tendons that are located in the carpal tunnel.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include feeling as if the fingers and hands are swollen.
Even if there is no visible evidence of swelling, a person could still be suffering from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
If you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome and are sure that you developed the condition due to work related stress, you should speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who will advise you as to the steps that should be taken.
