    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is frequently defended by Employer/Insurers in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation cases. The condition can be caused suddenly, or from repetitive work activities. An EMG study will reveal the condition, in addition to clinical exam. To have a valid claim, a doctor must opine that the work accident/activity caused the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome within a reasonable degree of medical certainty. (not absolute certainty).

    Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in A PA Work Comp Case

    In many cases, the IME doctor, hired by the Employer/Insurer will allege that the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was caused by the injured worker’s weight, diabetes, or sex (i.e., it’s more prevalent in women). It will be up to the Work Comp Judge to determine which doctor is more credible. Needless to say, this condition spawns a significant amount of litigation in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation cases. The mechanism of injury- i.e., what the injured worker was doing when they experienced the symptoms- is a critical part of the case, as in any PA work comp case. This will be the foundation for the doctors’ opinions.

    Fortunately, most people do well after a Carpal Tunnel Release- the surgery to address Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Some doctors don’t even prescribe physical therapy after the surgery as many people recover in a few months.
