What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve is compressed at the wrist. Symptoms can include burning and tingling or numbness in the fingers and the palm.
In North Carolina, carpal tunnel syndrome may be covered if it was caused by trauma from an accident at work. It may also be covered as an occupational illness if you can prove that:
- Your job environment contributed significantly to developing carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Your job environment placed you at a greater risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome than the general public.
- The occupational disease is peculiar to or characteristic of the trade involved.
As your attorneys, we will work hard to put you in the best possible position to qualify for benefits.
