Factory Employee with Carpal Tunnel Injury Recovers Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Lear Werts successfully settled a workers’ compensation case for a factory worker that suffered from bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of her repetitive work duties. The client’s employer initially denied responsibility for the injury claiming that something else had caused the injury.  The firm assisted the worker in securing a surgery necessary to relieve her debilitating wrist and hand pain and then negotiated a satisfactory five-figure settlement to compensate the worker for her ongoing partial disability.
