Every day, people who are employed in many different fields find themselves on the road as part of their job duties. Those who drive large trucks, delivery trucks or taxis may become involved in a work-related traffic crash. It is important to understand that many other fields may involve the risk of a traffic accident for workers in Los Angeles and all across California. For example, someone who is part of a road construction crew may be hit by a vehicle, or someone who works in an office could be struck by a reckless driver while they are running an errand.
Californians afflicted with carpal tunnel syndrome may experience symptoms in their hands such as weakness, numbness/tingling or loss or coordination. According to the Mayo Clinic, several factors can contribute to the development of CTS. For example, women are more likely than men to develop CTS, and the condition often occurs during pregnancy. Other medical conditions, such as thyroid disease, kidney failure, rheumatoid arthritis, neurological conditions or menopause, can also play a part in the development of CTS. People who are obese also face a greater risk.
If you have rheumatoid arthritis, you know that some days you can move freely, with no joint issues and on other days the pain is debilitating.

As you have gotten older, new aches and pains in your back have developed that make it hard for you to live your life in California as you used to.
