Long Island Personal Injury Lawyer: CTS Injury in Construction Work
According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, three to six percent of adults, or roughly 15 million people in the United States, are affected by CTS or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Research has found that the main cause of this injury is repetitive hand and wrist movements. Construction workers who repeatedly use the same tools every day are among the most common victims of CTS, along with office employees, agricultural workers, mechanics, locksmiths and assembly line workers. If you were diagnosed with CTS due to your working conditions, consult a Long Island personal injury lawyer about claiming compensation.
