SSDI Claims for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carrollton Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Disability Lawyers

Dallas-Fort Worth Social Security Disability Lawyers

Not so long ago, getting disability benefits for carpal tunnel wasn't very common, but now it's becoming less difficult to qualify for disability benefits for carpal tunnel syndrome. While it doesn't automatically qualify according to the Social Security Administration's list of serious impairments, carpal tunnel syndrome may fit into one of the other listings that relate to hands and arms.

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. Contact our Dallas-Fort Worth Social Security disability attorneys to learn more about your rights and how we can help you file your claim.

What Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome results from pressure on a nerve in the wrist caused by swelling. This medical condition is the result of repetitive motions of the hands and wrists and, therefore, it 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. Because of this, it's important that you work with a Social Security disability attorney who is experienced in handling SSD claims for carpal tunnel syndrome. At Coats & Todd, we are prepared to put our 60+ years of combined experience on your side. We have a history of success in complex Social Security disability cases, and have successfully represented thousands of disabled individuals throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

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. Diagnosing carpal tunnel syndrome can be challenging because it involves various elements. 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.

Elements of a successful SSD claim for carpal tunnel syndrome include:

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