Carpal Tunnel / Repetitive Stress
Federal Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in New Jersey
Helping You Recover for Carpal Tunnel or Repetitive Stress Injuries
Whether your job requires you to work at a desk or on machines, to sort or case mail, or to stand or walk for hours a day, you can be at risk for repetitive stress injuries. Something as seemingly simple as sitting at a desk and clicking a mouse or keyboarding all day can lead to severe injury and make it impossible for you to perform your job, as well as many other activities in your daily life.
A repetitive stress injury can affect almost any part of the body, from your fingers and toes to hands, feet, shoulders, neck and back. We handle cases involving all types of repetitive stress injuries, including:
- Wrist & hand conditions, like carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger
- Tendonitis or elbow injuries
- Shoulder tears
- Strained or torn ligaments
- Neck and back disc problems, including herniated discs, and bulging discs and nerve damage in thelimbs
- Knee tears and injuries
The effect of a repetitive stress injury can be severe. You may feel numbness or tingling, but you can also experience sharp pain, swelling or restricted movement as a result. Repetitive stress injuries can lead to joint, nerve, tissue or muscle damage, which can become permanent.
When you have suffered a repetitive stress injury as a federal employee, a very specific set of rules governs how you seek compensation for your injuries and how much you can receive. To protect your interests, you want an attorney who is well-versed in the provisions of the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), as well as other federal laws and regulations covering injured workers.
