Belleville Carpal Tunnel or Cubital Tunnel Injuries
If your job requires repetitive tasks that use your hands and arms, you may be suffering complications from carpal tunnel syndrome (also known as median neuropathy) or cubital tunnel syndrome (also known as ulnar neuropathy) that are preventing you from working, seriously affecting your grip strength or ability to perform fine manipulation tasks, or causing numbness and tingling in your fingers. While company representatives are likely telling you that you are not entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for your condition, an experienced attorney can make sure you understand your rights.

What Is Carpal Tunnel and Cubital Tunnel?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which pressure is placed on the median nerve, a nerve in the wrist and supplies feeling and movement to parts of the hand. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome in the hand and fingers (thumb, index and index side of middle fingers) include:
- Muscle damage
Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition in which pressure is placed on the ulnar nerve, a nerve that passes through the elbow and wrist, which supplies feeling and movement to other parts of the hand. Symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome in the arm, hand and fingers (small, ring and ring side of middle fingers) include:
- Muscle damage
Carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome are not specific to any particular workplace environment or vocation; any workers who use their hands and arms could develop either or both of these conditions. However, assembly line workers tend to be at high risk. If your work is a contributing factor to your carpal tunnel or cubital tunnel syndrome, we will fight for your right to compensation.
