Have you had an accident that left you seriously injured and unable to use your hand or wrist? If you've hurt your hand or wrist, you know how painful those injuries can be. You also know how much you rely on your hands and wrists when you suddenly aren't able to fully use them. You probably have many questions such as: Who will pay my medical costs? Do I really have a workers' comp claim for my hand injury? How long will it be before I can go back to work?
Hand and wrist injuries occur at work every day. An injured worker can be doing an administrative task such as typing throughout the day and develop injuries such as carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, De Quervain's Syndrome or trigger finger. This is just a small sampling of the various work injuries you can suffer whether working in an office, hospital or construction site. Wrist injuries are just as common and even more painful. Carpal tunnel syndrome develops in the wrist, but injuries such as TFCC tears, breaks and fractures also limit an injured worker from performing his or her job.

Do not delay in reporting your work injury. Pennsylvania has statutes that apply in workers' compensation cases.
