Wrists are vulnerable to injuries. Wrist injuries may occur while performing repetitive activities at work (repetitive strain injury), and lead to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or tendonitis.
If your wrist injury is a result of workplace conditions or related to the duties your job requires, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. However, getting what you deserve depends on many other factors, including making the decision about the right time to consult a workers’ compensation doctor.
It is best to act quickly, in case of a workplace-related accident for your claims to be reliable.
See the right doctor as soon as possible after a work-related injury or an accident, especially if you are experiencing the following conditions –
- If your wrist feels abnormally weak
- If you cannot move your wrist like you are used to
- If you experience a stinging feeling
- Pain in the wrist while working
These conditions may be an indication of severe damage to your wrist, which may worsen with time. Such injury may lead to loss of income if you are unable to work or you may have to spend a lot of money on treatment procedures like surgery or orthopedic procedures. So, it is best to see a workplace or personal injury doctor right away.
