Representing People With Repetitive Stress Injuries

Even Small Injuries Can Cause Big Pain
One of the main problems with obtaining workers' compensation benefits for people suffering from a repetitive motion injury like carpal tunnel syndrome is that these injuries occur over time and not from a single incident. Gradually, over time, the pain becomes unbearable. We will help you prove that your job was the cause of your injury and not some other non-work-related cause.
Questions frequently arise about the cause of a repetitive motion injury when insurance companies attempt to minimize or deny claims. Some of the common types of repetitive motion injuries include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Rotator cuff tears
- Trigger fingers
- Epicondylitis - tennis elbow
- Shoulder problems
If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or any other repetitive use injury, you may be eligible for workers' compensation.
