when the plants had a machine called an LSM carpel tunnel was a monthly occurrence. most claims were approved but they took time and lots of documentation.
I am sure you are not the first. get with the union they should be able to help.

Yes, I filed a ca-2. Yes, I explained my limitations. It's not so debilitating that I can't shower etc. I'm still keying. Given the work we do I was curious if anyone else keying at a REC has had an issue with carpel tunnel and experience trying to get workers comp.

you filled a ca-2 correct?

in your write up what did you state you do at home because you can not use your limbs the same? how about taking a shower? washing your face?

anything that requires use of your limbs must be reported have it affects you 24/7

Has anyone reading this board ever received Workers Comp benefits for carpel tunnel? I filed a claim in Feb 2015 and it has reached a senior claims examiner. The claim has been with this person well over the 90 days they say they have to make a decision. They refuse to call me back, or at least they haven't done so with an answer. I've been keying for 15 years so imagine my surprise to discover how difficult it is to get the claim approved. How else would I get carpel tunnel? Really, my question is 2 fold.

1. Has anyone been able to get a claim approved for carpel tunnel and was it difficult to do so? This is just guesswork but perhaps my arthritis is confusing the issue. However, as the person afflicted, I know the carpel tunnel is not arthritis because it's a completely different pain.

2. Up until about 2 weeks ago, my doctor was with 210Workers, a FECA specialist. They quit doing business and said I should find another doctor. I've googled but cannot find anyone in the area that specializes in FECA. Should I ask the DOL for a doctor recommendation or will their doctor do their bidding ie: prevent my claim from being approved?

All this red tape is overwhelming and frustrating. I can't help but resent the fact that my employer, whom I have put in many years of keying for, refuses to honor my injury. Should I give up? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It's a private SLC REC facebook Group.

Would you like to be added postalvet? Are you a current REC employee that would benefit from these updates? I would be happy to add you!

Ok thank you all for your responses. I really appreciate it. I've gotten so many different answers when ive asked around at work. My superviser is so vague and seems bothered by my questions. He doesn't give me straight answered. Maybe I'm already on his black list. :( thanks again . Happy holidays
