Carpal Tunnel Disability
Carpal Tunnel And Other Repetitive Stress Injuries
Many people think that carpal tunnel syndrome only comes from typing on keyboards. It only happens if you type day after day, for year after year, right? Not really. People from many different occupations develop carpal tunnel syndrome each year. These include factory workers, workers on loading docks and grocery store clerks.
At Binder & Binder®, these injured workers become our clients. We understand how they feel when they can’t work anymore, and how they struggle to make ends meet. We help them file successful Social Security Disability claims.
Our record of success stems from the way we handle all cases, including carpal tunnel cases and other repetitive stress disorders. We listen carefully to what you have to say and we win.
The Importance of Medical Records
Disability approvals are usually based on the information found in your medical record. For this reason, it is important that your records document the limiting effects of your medical condition. Unlike most lawyers, we get involved early in the process to help you fill out your disability application.
When helping you apply for disability, we gather a full listing of your treatment sources, dates of treatment, names of doctors and the medical conditions with which you have been diagnosed. This medical information is critical in carpal tunnel cases, since the government is often skeptical about the pain you suffer with carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you are suffering from a disability or carpal tunnel syndrome and your doctor says you can’t work anymore, talk with us at Binder & Binder®. Our Social Security Disability advocates can answer your questions you might have about mental health disability benefits and Social Security Disability including what constitutes a disability, whether your impairment might be significant enough to be deemed disabling by the Social Security Administration and whether you are eligible for benefits.
