Neurological Injuries

Many injured workers represented in South Florida by attorney Randy Zeldin, Esq., suffer from nerve or neurological injuries. Most commonly, these include damage to the autonomic, sensory or motor nerves, caused by a traumatic work injury. Any time there is trauma or injury; there is the possibility of pinched nerves and resulting pain.

Many injuries can result in what is known as a “peripheral neuropathy.” This is a term for any disease of the peripheral nervous system. Peripheral nerves are those that transmit function from the spinal cord to the lower extremities and arms. Neuropathies can impact motor function and a loss of function of the arms or hands and sometimes the lower extremities.

Boca Raton workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability attorney, Randy Zeldin, has represented many South Florida workers’ compensation claimants with peripheral neuropathies. The most common among these conditions are “entrapment neuropathies”, which can result in conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy and thoracic outlet syndrome.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is the most common “entrapment neuropathy” among the thousands of clients represented by Pompano Beach workers’ compensation attorney Randy Zeldin. CTS are often the result of repeated trivial traumas over a long period of time, such as repetitive motion at a factory or keyboarding. CTS results when there is compression of the median nerve in the wrist. The symptoms of CTS are typically tingling and numbness in the hand. Sometimes the thumb is pulled outward involuntarily. The standard diagnostic techniques used by neurologists are nerve conduction velocity and electromyography testing. Treatment is usually conservative at first, by splinting the wrists and limiting range of motion. If unsuccessful, a surgical technique known as carpal tunnel release can be utilized.

A less common peripheral neuropathy disease which impacts workers’ compensation clients of attorney Randy Zeldin in Boca Raton, is known as “ulnar compression syndrome.” Typical symptoms are numbness of the fifth finger and the fourth finger. UTS can greatly impact fine manipulation movement. Randy Zeldin has represented heavy equipment operators in Pompano Beach and Boynton Beach who sustain ulnar nerve syndrome.

Mr. Zeldin represented me at my social security disability hearing. He was always responsive to any questions, his staff was a delight to work with, and I feel I won my case by the comments Mr. Zeldin made at my administrative hearing before the judge. I highly recommend him. Debra
