Relief For Hand Conditions

There are few professions that do not require full use of your hands. Everything from operating a cash register to neurosurgery requires basic dexterity, and if you do not have it, then your employment options shrink dramatically. For people with degenerative conditions that affect their fine motor skills, whether carpal tunnel, arthritis or something else, the narrowing scope of their abilities can be deeply limiting. At a certain point, they may not be able to perform their job tasks at all.

If this is your situation, Nicolet Law Office, S.C. has the resources to help you. Our attorneys can evaluate your eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits and assist with every step in the process, including appealing a denied claim. We proudly serve the communities of Wisconsin.

Until we have won benefits, you will not pay. If we do not win benefits, our services are free.

Common Hand Conditions

Millions of Americans suffer from debilitating hand conditions, which all have different prospects for receiving federal benefits. These are some of the most common:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
    Many people associate carpal tunnel with data entry and office jobs, but there is even greater prevalence among assembly line workers. CTS also disproportionately affects women, who are three times as likely to develop it. The underlying cause is a pinched nerve in the wrist, which leads to tingling, numbness and loss of motor function
  • Arthritis
    There are many different kinds of arthritis, with osteoarthritis being most common. As the cartilage in your joints deteriorates, the bones grow larger to mitigate the damage, causing painful bone-on-bone scraping and grinding during movement. Rheumatoid arthritis is another common variety, in which the immune system causes joint swelling and discomfort.

Underlying Conditions

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has extensive guidelines on which conditions qualify for disability benefits. While many hand conditions do not have their own specific listing, they can sometimes be connected to conditions that do. For instance, carpal tunnel can sometimes result from diabetes, lupus, kidney failure or other conditions. Our attorneys will work with your doctors to obtain the clearest possible diagnosis and determine how it fits within the SSA guidelines.

Even if there is no underlying condition, you can still be eligible for benefits if we can show that you are not able to return to previous employment, nor can you perform any other kind of employment.

We Offer Skilled Help For A Technical Process

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is time-consuming and intensive. However, our lawyers always offer free consultations, and you will not pay unless we win. For more information, contact us through our online form, or else call our office: 715-802-0872.
