How can wrist injuries hurt your ability to work?

Arizona residents like you who work in a secretary or in an office position may think that you are safe from the work-related injuries you may hear of from more “dangerous” industries. Unfortunately, you are still susceptible. We at Matt Fendon Law Group are here today to discuss exactly how the injuries you are susceptible to can hurt your ability to work.

Injuries that desk or office workers most often face typically involve the hands, wrists or arms. The primary cause behind them is repetitive motion, which is unavoidable when your job relies on you being able to type or write all day. Repetitive stress injuries can cause things like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which can be severe and may even cripple your ability to do your work.

Repetitive stress injuries may also take a long time to heal from. Injuries to the ligaments, muscles and nerves in the hand and wrist area require a lot of rest and physical therapy. Sometimes, surgery may be required to put the wrist and hand back in working order. Of course, the more time you take off of work, the longer you will be going without a paycheck. When combined with the often-times expensive physical therapy and medical costs you could be dealing with, it can be devastating.

If you have suffered from any sort of wrist or hand injury due to the repetitive nature of your work, consider taking a look at our web page on workers' compensation, linked here. You can learn more about what you can do in this situation in terms of compensation.
