Why Was My Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Claim Denied?

Sometimes the interests and priorities of workers’ compensation insurance carriers get in the way of injured workers receiving the benefits they deserve. If your claim for a workplace injury like carpal tunnel syndrome was denied, it is because carpal tunnel is considered an “occupational claim”. It did not happen at a specific day or time but occurs as a result of repetitve use over a period of time.

The workers’ compensation carrier finds it more expedient to deny your claim. They save money and don’t have to do anything unless you provide medical documentation that your work caused the condition or aggravates a pre-existing condition.
