SSD Claims for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Dallas-Fort Worth Social Security Disability Lawyers

Have you been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome? You may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits if this condition prevents you from working full time. Carpal tunnel syndrome results from pressure on a nerve in the wrist that is caused by swelling. This medical condition is caused by repetitive motions of the hands and wrists and therefore is categorized as a repetitive stress injury.

Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome that can be classified as disabling include:

  • Weakness
  • Numbness
  • Tingling

Obtaining Disability Benefits for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

To receive Social Security disability benefits for carpal tunnel syndrome, you will need to prove that your medical condition meets the criteria stated in the Social Security disability impairment listings. In most cases, the Social Security disability program does not typically find that the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome qualify a person for disability income.

You may be considered for benefits, however, if nerve damage from your condition results in peripheral neuropathy. The requirements for this condition are very difficult to meet. For that reason, you will need the assistance of our Dallas Fort-Worth Social Security disability attorneys from Coats & Todd! We can work to build a solid case that can help you obtain the benefits that you deserve. Contact our firm at your earliest convenience.

Proving Medical Evidence

If you are not able to perform your job because of the limitations caused by carpal tunnel syndrome, you may be able to receive disability benefits. Diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome can be challenging because it involves various elements, including:

  • Showing signs of classic symptoms
  • Specific physical findings
  • Abnormal electrodiagnostic test results

To begin building a claim that will be strong enough to be considered by the Social Security Administration, it is important to receive legal help. Call our firm to schedule a free case evaluation to get started.
