Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the result of injuring the median nerve, which goes along the forearm and hand, over and over again. This is a common injury amongst computer workers but is also found amongst workers who operate heavy machinery. Repetition is at the core of this injury.
The pain can start slowly and progress quickly. It can start with tingling, pain, numbness, burning and weakening of the fingers, hands and wrist. If not treated, these symptoms can become debilitating send sharp sudden pains along the affected area.
Usually, carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by reduced space for the median nerve within the carpal tunnel. Other than the causes listed above, work stress, repetitive use of vibrating tools, fluid retention during menopause or pregnancy, or a cyst/tumor in the canal may also contribute to the symptoms you're feeling. Usually, one cause isn't singled out but a variety of factors are considered.
Just about any employee can get an injury due to overexertion. These types of cases make up close to 25% of workers compensation claims submitted. According to the US Department of Labor, some industries are more prone to musculoskeletal disorders because of overexertion at work. EMT's, home nurses & hospital nurses who spend their days helping patients to their feet & moving people around to bathrooms or new hospital beds. The healthcare industry with its repetitive movements and long hours make it a prime environment for injuries caused by overexertion.

Studies show that every year, there are roughly two-million threats of violence in American places of work. These situations aren't only dangerous but are also very costly to employers (in America ~$36 billion per year).
Violent acts at work could also be caused by non-employees. For example, a criminal robbing a business. When working in a business where you have to interact with the public, you are very susceptible to unforeseen threats to your well-being. Still, employees or former employees are the cause of numerous workplace incidents.

Usually, if you were injured because of a chemical exposure, you won't be the only one experiencing symptoms. It will greatly help your case if you could prove that other people at the same workplace have suffered similar injuries or illnesses.
