Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a painful, progressive condition caused by compression of a nerve (the median nerve) in the wrist. Repetitive motion injuries occur from prolonged repetitive, forceful or awkward motions. Both carpal tunnel and repetitive motion injuries can cause painful, debilitating symptoms that can affect an individual’s ability to work and function as they did before the injury occurred. Individuals suffering from a severe CTS or repetitive motion injury may require costly surgeries and weeks, months or possibly years of physical therapy.
After suffering a serious carpal tunnel or repetitive motion injury, you should seek experienced legal representation immediately.

Our aggressive litigation approach has proven successful. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients throughout southern California and will work tirelessly to make sure you are fairly compensated.
As mentioned above, carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve is pressed or squeezed at the wrist. When the nerve protected by the carpal tunnel tube is compressed, painful and debilitating symptoms can arise. Numbness, muscle weakness, and tingling sensations in the palm of the hands and fingers are common symptoms of CTS sufferers.
Repetitive motion injuries are one of the most common types of injuries sustained in the workplace. The more common types of repetitive motion injuries are tendinitis and bursitis. Tendinitis is a term used to describe an inflamed tendon. Inflammation typically occurs at the location where a tendon inserts into a bone.
Bursitis is a term used to describe inflammation of a bursa sac (a small sac that serves as a cushion in the area between a tendon and a bone). Traumatic bursitis is typically associated with repetitive motion actions. Bursitis sufferers often have stiffness or pain at the affected joint, which may look red and swollen.
