Lancaster Hand and Wrist Workers’ Comp Lawyer

Hand and wrist injuries are among the most common reasons for workers’ compensation claims in Lancaster County and across the state of Pennsylvania. Hands and wrists contain a large amount of very small bones that allow for dexterity. But these small bones are quite fragile. If hand and wrist bones, cartilage, or connecting tissue are damaged, the result can be extreme pain and limited movement, both of which can make it difficult, if not impossible, to work.

Types of Hand and Wrist Injuries at Work

Hand and wrist injuries are often caused by repetitive stress or workplace accidents. Workers in construction, manufacturing, nursing and landscaping are particularly susceptible to severe job-related hand and wrist injuries. Office workers, especially anyone involved in data entry or whose job requires working with computers or typing, can suffer from repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) results from pressure being placed on the median nerve in the sufferer’s wrist. If your work requires you to bend your wrists, engage in repetitive hand and wrist movements, or undertake forceful hand movements, you are at risk for CTS.

Some of the most common types of on-the-job hand and wrist injuries are:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Muscle tears
  • Torn ligaments
  • Repetitive stress injuries

Hand and wrist injuries can be extremely painful and can result in permanent disability. In severe cases, the result can be amputation of the hand or fingers.

What Should You Do if You’ve Hurt Your Hand and/or Wrist While at Work?

If you believe your hand or wrist injury was sustained while performing your work duties, you are encouraged to file a workers’ compensation claim for benefits. You should immediately advise your employer of the injury and seek to get their insurer to cover the claim accordingly.

You should also be aware that it is not uncommon for the insurer to challenge the workers’ comp claim. That said, you are encouraged to speak with attorney Mike Vanasse as soon as possible to discuss the appeal process and learn more about your legal options and rights. Working with an attorney can help ease your concerns as you work toward obtaining a successful outcome to your claim.
