Portland Carpal Tunnel Injury Attorney

Carpal tunnel syndrome was largely unknown until the mid-1960s. Since then, claims for carpal tunnel syndrome have increased dramatically, as carpal tunnel syndrome results from any repetitive activity, such as typing or using a jackhammer.

The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensations. You may find the pain so intense that it wakes you from sleep. Carpal tunnel syndrome can cost thousands of dollars in medical bills and lost wages. A workers' compensation lawyer can prove that a work-related activity, such as typing, is the contributing cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome, and help you secure workers' comp benefits. I am workers' compensation attorney John M. Hoadley, and I represent injured workers throughout the Portland area.

The law requires that the claim be proved by objective medical evidence, and the judge will base the decision on that evidence. The outcome of the cases rests heavily on what doctors say. Judges often defer to the doctor with the highest level of expertise, which is why I keep the playing field level by having orthopedic surgeons on my side.
