Why Maryland Car Accidents Can Leave You With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
You see another car about to smash into yours. You can’t avoid the collision, so instead you brace for impact. You grab the steering wheel, close your eyes and hope for the best.
A week or two later, as you are recovering from your Maryland auto accident, you notice a tingling sensation in your fingers. You shake your hand to stretch it out, and the sensation goes away, so you think nothing of it.
The following week, you find yourself a little clumsier than usual, frequently dropping objects. Occasional pain shoots up your arm all the way to your shoulder and down into your hand. You start to wonder, “What’s wrong with me?”
If this sounds familiar, you very well could be suffering from Carpal tunnel syndrome, brought on by the car accident. Maryland car accidents can result in all sorts of injuries, including serious injuries to your hand, wrist, and arm such as:
- Broken fingers or hand
- Wrist fracture or sprain
- Broken elbow
- Injury to the nerves in your arm, wrist, or hand
- Injury to your neck that causes pain down your arm
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Often, Carpal tunnel syndrome results from a combination of factors rather than one cause. However, a skilled Maryland accident attorney can help you determine whether the car accident contributed to your injuries, and can help you get the compensation you need to cover treatment costs.
At Nickelsporn and Lundin, we work with medical professionals to ensure our clients are getting the best possible care for their injuries. Because we are experienced with cases like yours, we also have the resources to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident so that you can get the money you deserve.
