Carpal Tunnel and Social Security Disability Lawyer- d’Oliveira & Associates

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disease that is caused by pressure to the nerve in the wrist that allows feeling and movement of the wrist. This disease can cause weakness, muscle damage, tingling, soreness or numbness in the fingers and hands. Repetitive motions of the wrist and hands, which include typing, sewing, painting, and playing musical instruments commonly cause carpal tunnel syndrome. The nerve that brings feeling to the hand is called the carpal tunnel and any inflammation whatsoever can lead to this pain and lack of feeling. There are many symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome which commonly include:

  • Numbness and tingling in the palm of the hand, thumb and two to three fingers in either or both hands.
  • Sharp pains in the wrist that extends to the elbow.
  • Problems with finger coordination and movement.
  • Degeneration of muscle under the thumb.
  • Weakness in grip and ability to carry objects in one or both hands.

Carpal tunnel syndrome has many medical problems that are associated with it. These include:

  • Acromegaly
  • Alcoholism
  • Arthritis
  • Bone Fractures
  • Diabetes
  • Hypothyrodism
  • Infections
  • Menopause, Premenstrual Syndrome and Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

Carpal tunnel syndrome can be a debilitating disease that keeps you out of work for long periods of time. If you or a loved one has this disease and it is affecting your life so severely that your doctor tells you that you should not return to work, contact an experienced RI Social Security Disability attorney right away. An experienced Social Security attorney in Rhode Island can help you to make important life decisions and can ease the stress of the application process to the Social Security Administration. Nearly 75 percent of all first time applicants for Social Security Disability are denied benefits. This denial is generally not because the disability is not worthy of benefits, but rather because the paperwork was not what the Social Security Administration was looking for.

When looking to approve or deny a claim for Disability benefits, the Social Security Administration relies heavily on the medical record provided to them as well as the opinion of the treating physician. It is important to have an attorney look these papers over in order to be sure that they accurately reflect the pain that you are experiencing. An experienced Social Security Disability attorney can ensure that you put the best claim forward for benefits that you have and can also reduce the stress of compiling and reading all of the information yourself. Dealing with carpal tunnel syndrome can be stressful and a competent and experienced RI Social Security Disability attorney can ease the stress and pain of fighting for your right to Social Security Disability compensation. An experienced RI Social Security Disability attorney can also ensure that the Social Security Administration is aware of the extent of your disability and your inability to work.
