Developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome From Work Is Serious
At Revens, Revens & St. Pierre, P.C., our attorneys understand that carpal tunnel syndrome, a repetitive motion injury, can be suffered in workplaces of all types. Office workers who spend their days at a computer and keyboard may suffer from this condition. However, construction workers, industrial workers, teachers, nurses and retail workers are among the many others who are susceptible because of the repeated motions their hands do daily.
Proving That Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Was A Work-Related Injury
As an injury that builds up over time, the carpal tunnel injury provides employers and their insurance companies a greater opportunity to argue that the condition was not suffered in the workplace. However, many cases do involve repetitive motion at work.
We are skilled at standing up to opponents who refuse to provide workers’ compensation by claiming that carpal tunnel syndrome was a pre-existing condition or that it was the result of activities the victim did outside the workplace. Having decades of experience in these matters, our carpal tunnel injury lawyers know how to build strong cases.

Workers’ compensation wage benefits are critical to cover your expenses while you recover from the carpal tunnel injury. Our goal is to help you get all the benefits you are entitled to as quickly as possible.
