Los Angeles Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Attorney
While little is actually known on the causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), we do know that it is presented when the median nerve becomes compressed at the wrist in the area known as the carpal tunnel. The syndrome is identified by objective and verifiable symptoms that are usually noticeable in the hands and wrists. The presence of unexplained pain coupled with the lack of physical deformity is usually diagnosed as thoracic outlet syndrome or pronator syndrome, not CTS.
Although there are several internal causes of CTS, like diabetes and pregnancy, the syndrome can be developed by individuals who perform heavy manual labor and by those who use tools and equipment that vibrate heavily. No matter what the actual cause, CTS can prevent a person from working on a long term basis, and those who are diagnosed with the condition may be eligible to receive benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA) in the form of Social Security Disability (SSD).
Unfortunately, proving a claim is perhaps the hardest part of being approved for benefits, what with the SSA being a notorious denier of applications submitted by those with valid claims. The reason for the denials is primarily due to the number of applications that the agency reviews (the more applications that are reviewed, the more that will be mistakenly denied) and the failure of applicants to properly and completely fill out an SSD benefits application.
