Frequent Numbness and Tingling in Your Fingers
Losing sensation in your fingers, or only feeling tingling, can cause discomfort. It may also interfere with your ability to work, especially if your job requires sensitivity in your fingers for tasks such as typing or writing. This could cause you to lose income and may be a problem that causes ongoing disruption with your professional life.
You may also experience problems in your personal life because of this symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome.
Worsening Numbness When Using Your Hands
Per NINDS, those who have carpal tunnel syndrome may feel like their fingers are swollen, even if they do not look swollen. This may make it difficult to complete tasks that require your hands and fingers, and doing such tasks could make your symptoms worse.
Some of the activities that may become difficult because of carpal tunnel syndrome are:
- Holding a cellphone
- Typing or doing other activities that involve a computer
- Driving a vehicle
- Exercising in ways that involve your arms or hands
- Grasping or holding objects
Carpal tunnel syndrome can affect many different parts of your life. As a result of your syndrome, you may face several secondary problems that are considered losses from your slip and fall accident.

Property Owners Must Remove All Slipping Hazards
Slipping is a clear way for someone to be hurt—in fact, it is the way that you or your loved one developed carpal tunnel syndrome. Property owners should be aware of the danger caused by slipping and falling and must ensure that their property is free of all slipping hazards.
Some types of slipping hazards that may be present in a property in Punta Gorda are:
- Leaking pipes or A/C units
- Spilled liquids
- Loose floor tiles
- Freshly washed tile or wood
A property owner must remove anything that could possibly cause a victim such as you or your loved one to slip or fall on their property. Their failure to do so could be the reason that you are suffering and may entitle you to compensation from the responsible party or parties.
Your Lawyer Will Make Your Case for Financial Justice
A lawyer can help you in several ways, with their goal being to secure compensation for your losses. They may take the following steps as they work to win your case.
Speaking with Witnesses
Witnesses could be helpful to your case if:
- They saw your accident
- They saw the conditions that caused you to slip
- They have seen a pattern of behavior by the defendant that is relevant to your case
- They are experts in fields relevant to your case
Interviewing witnesses and recording their accounts is one way that a lawyer can help you.
Evaluating Your Losses
You may be generally aware of your losses (medical bills and pain and suffering among them), but a lawyer will put a specific value on each of them. By doing this, they will be prepared to negotiate a settlement that may provide you the compensation you need to cover each of your losses.
Protecting Your Rights
Among other roles, a lawyer is your legal guardian. They will guard you against anyone who may try to violate your rights by having you admit fault for your accident or in other ways.
