Common Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Carpal tunnel injury: This is a fairly common wrist injury that is caused by the overuse of the hand or wrist during actions like typing, assembly line work and cashiering. It can be very painful, making it difficult to do normal job duties.
- Cubital tunnel syndrome: This swelling of the nerve behind the elbow can cause great pain for truckers, machinery operators and others. Symptoms include tingling in the fingers, pain near the elbow and general weakness in the hand.
- Arthritis: Arthritis in any joint can be caused by overuse on the job. Because arthritis is often associated with the aging process, many workers may not think they can prove their arthritis stems from their jobs. Our attorneys have extensive experience investigating and proving job-related injuries of all kinds, and we will help you overcome the challenges you face.
- Back injuries: Back pain can lead to problems in all areas of your life. It can make it difficult or even impossible for you to work in your current job or even another line of work. If you suffer a back injury from repetitive motion or any other work-related cause, we will offer you the legal support you need to obtain workers’ compensation benefits.
