The death of carpal tunnel work comp claims?  Hardly!

In the last month I have received at least 5 calls from people looking for an attorney who will handle a workers’ compensation carpal or cubital tunnel claim.  Several of these folks said that they have talked to other attorneys and have been told, “no one takes those cases anymore.”  That’s just crazy.  In the last 6 months I have settled 3 of these cases and have won 2 trials.  It’s true that the cases are much more difficult to win than ever before and the amounts awarded have gone down.  Lawyers have to be very selective in the cases they take; clients must be much more active in providing information.  If your lawyer doesn’t know how to build one of these cases then you need to look elsewhere.  Good carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel cases can still be won.  You just need to find a lawyer willing to put in the work.  Have questions?  call the Law Office of Keith Short.  618-254-0055
