New Jersey Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Claims
Attorney Guidance for Workers' Compensation
Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by inflammation of tissue through the arm, wrist and hand. This is a common issue for many workers who consistently use their hands and wrists in repetitive movements, especially those who work in offices. Carpal tunnel syndrome is an occupational disease that can have serious consequences on an individual's ability to work.
If you suffer from carpal tunnel pains caused by work-related activities, it is important for you to seek the medical attention you need and file a claim for the compensation you deserve. However, securing your entitlements may not be as simple as reporting an injury—you may need to fight for your compensation, and you may need the help of a New Jersey workers' comp lawyer.
At The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C., we have secured tens of millions in damages for injured clients. Contact our firm and take the first steps to securing your financial future!
Taking Action for Carpal Tunnel Injuries
Carpal tunnel is a repetitive stress injury—it is one of several work-related injuries that involves repeated actions. You may not sue your employer for these kinds of injuries. However, you may file a claim to obtain compensation for the costs related to your recovery and other losses. As with most other work-related injuries, workers' compensation may cover expenses such as lost wages, surgery and treatment, and pain and suffering.
Filing a Successful Claim
Was your carpal tunnel syndrome claim denied? While this may have occurred for any number of reasons, it is important to remember that you may still take action to make a successful claim. Our New Jersey workers' compensation attorney helps our clients ensure they correctly file a claim and effectively make their case. It is not a matter of proving that you are suffering pain—it is a matter of demonstrating that your carpal tunnel pain was caused by repetitive use at work.
Your Time to File is Limited. Take Action Immediately!
Most workers' compensation claims must be made within two years of the incident. If you do not file a claim within two years of discovering the carpal tunnel injury, the statute of limitations may prevent you from recovering the compensation you deserve. Take immediate action to secure your entitlements and establish your financial security!

Q:Do I need a workers’ compensation attorney for my injury case?
A:Yes, you need an attorney. If you’re visiting this site, have questions about your rights, and have been injured in a work-related accident, you may be entitled to collect money by filing a formal claim with the NJ Workers’ Compensation Courts. Only a NJ licensed lawyer can file a formal claim. If you do not file the formal claim, you will not collect what you are entitled to, and your rights to medical treatment may be affected.
Q:Will I lose my job if I file a formal claim with an attorney?
A:No, it is against the law for an employer to discriminate against them for filing a workers’ compensation claim in NJ. If you are fired for filing a claim, you must speak to a workers’ compensation attorney immediately to protect your rights.
Q:What should I do if I have been injured while working in New Jersey?
A:Notify your employer immediately. Speak with your supervisor or someone else of authority at your work. Notifications do not have to be in writing—however, it may benefit you to have evidence that you notified your employer. If you intend to seek medical treatment for your injuries, this should be requested through your employer as well.
