Repetitive trauma injuries, such as carpal tunnel, are common work related injuries. Certain employers and/or insurance companies have specific doctors they use for these types of cases who will state that these injuries are not work related. Simply because a doctor says a carpal tunnel claim, for example, is not work related, does not bring an end to your case. You have the right to get your own medical opinion and prove that that doctor’s opinion is wrong. In fact, as a general rule, if you do a repetitive job and have worked for the employer for a decent period of time, it is likely that your injury is work related. Simply because your employer is able to hand pick a doctor who says it is not work related does not mean that you should not get worker’s compensation benefits.
