Carpal Tunnel

Probably the most well known form of repetitive stress injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome affects the hands and arms due to consistent, heavy use of the hands over time. It can manifest as pain and discomfort, numbness, tingling, weakness, or even burning sensations in the hand, wrist, or forearm. If you’re experiencing this type of pain, let your employer know right away – then call our experienced attorneys.

Permanent and Total Disability

When a worker becomes permanently impaired, they can no longer work at all. This may be due to a severe brain injury, paralysis, amputations, or more. These cases can be tricky with many legal hurdles on the way to compensation. You can rely on our legal team to help during this stressful time.

Work Injury Scars

The effects of workplace injuries can continue to be seen long after the initial injury has been treated. Scars or other disfigurements can bring about painful memories years later.

Permanent Impairment
