Many people think damage to the carpal tunnel can only be caused by consistently making the same repetitive motions over and over. Bristol area personal injury lawyer Michael L. Saile, Jr, explains that carpal tunnel injury can be due to the impact of a PA or NJ auto accident. It happens more than you might have thought.
In our latest article, “Damage to the Carpal Tunnel can Result from an Auto Accident,” we discuss what signs and symptoms to look for if you are experiencing pain or numbness/tingling in your wrist, fingers, or forearm after a car accident.
Your carpal tunnel is the small space in your wrist that your median nerve and several tendons run through from your forearm into the palm of your hand. These tendons can swell when damaged, resulting in the nerve becoming pinched. Nerves that become irritated or compromised cause great pain.
