Is Carpal Tunnel Considered an Injury Under Workers’ Comp Laws?

Yes. Carpal tunnel is considered an overuse injury under workers’ compensation insurance. Overuse injuries are caused by the constant, repetitive use of an area of your body, which causes it to essentially wear out. Carpal tunnel is one of the most common types of overuse injuries. However, some jobs require the overuse of shoulders, hands, arms, and other areas of the body and can fall under this same area of workers’ comp claims.
