It’s interesting to know that workers’ comp can also account for long-term illnesses. I’m thinking about helping a friend hire a workers’ comp attorney soon because he has been suffering from a severe case of carpal tunnel syndrome. Such an ailment would surely affect his work as a graphic artist.
Carpal Tunnel is a very devastating condition of the wrists. I have written a few articles on Carpal Tunnel. A graphic artist would likely be affected. Has your friend reported the claim to their employer? Your friend does have the right to obtain an attorney, but he/she should report it to his/her employer if they are suffering. Has your friend seen a Doctor for their condition?
