Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome & Workers’ Compensation Claims
One common misconception about workers’ compensation is that you have to be injured in an accident to recover benefits. The truth is that injuries or illnesses that develop over time through repetition of physical tasks or prolonged exposure to harmful substances are just as valid as any workplace injuries that might be caused by an accident.
Carpal tunnel syndrome and other injuries caused by repetitive stress are not uncommon in today’s office and production environments. Our attorneys understand these injuries and can help you to obtain the benefits you need to recover. Contact us.
At the Law Office of Robert Koenigsberg, we represent people throughout New York City and the surrounding areas in all aspects of the workers’ compensation process. If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or another type of repetitive stress injury, we can help you to recover compensation for lost income, to find and obtain proper medical care, and to recover qualified medical expenses. Even if you haven’t lost time from work due to a work-related injury, we may be able to negotiate a “no lost time” settlement for you.
In addition, carpal tunnel and other repetitive stress disorders can also qualify people for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Like workers’ comp, SSD is another system and bureaucratic process that our law firm can help you to navigate through.
Both the SSD and workers’ compensation processes can be confusing, frustrating and fraught with delays. We can help minimize these effects and be very helpful to you in terms of being able to answer your questions about what’s happening, what you can do and what to expect. We encourage you to ask questions and not to hesitate in expressing any concerns at any time.
