Regardless of the type of workplace, workers in California are at risk of suffering from workplace injuries. While the risks to construction workers and firefighters are obvious, those who work behind desks or perform tasks requiring fine motor skills may be at risk of developing cumulative injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis, among others. Whether your work-related injuries were caused by a single event or developed over a period of time, you may be entitled to compensation.
The most prevalent type of repetitive motion injury is carpal tunnel. A diagnosis of carpal tunnel occurs when the tendons surrounding the median nerve thicken or become swollen, compressing the nerve. Symptoms of this syndrome include tingling, numbness and a decreased range of motion. Those who spend a great deal of time typing on a keyboard are among those most at risk for developing this condition.
