Repetitive Stress Injuries

Workers’ Comp Covers Repetitive Stress Injuries

Many jobs involve repetitive motion. Manufacturing and factory jobs may involve intricate repeated movements for hours on end. Those in the retail industry can develop musculoskeletal strain from manning a checkout all day long. And in the office setting, typing and using a mouse are significant sources of repetitive stress that often go overlooked.

The human body is not designed to perform repeated movements hour after hour, day after day. While taking frequent breaks and practicing safe ergonomics can reduce the risk of injury, you could still find yourself facing a repetitive stress diagnosis.

The Fallout Of Repetitive Stress And Strain

Repetitive stress can lead to serious musculoskeletal disorders such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tennis elbow
  • Tendinitis
  • Back and neck injuries from repeated lifting
  • Hand-arm vibration syndrome
  • Bursitis in the knees, hips or shoulders
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff syndrome

Treatment for these conditions often requires instituting lifestyle changes and halting the repetitive activity. As a result, your injury may inhibit your ability to continue working. Fortunately, you may be entitled to significant financial benefits through
workers’ compensation.

Why You Need An Advocate

Many people fall into the trap of assuming their supervisor or human resources department will handle the workers’ compensation claim. In reality, your case — and your rights — will fall by the wayside unless you take action to keep your claim moving.

Your employer and the insurance company are looking out for their own interests. You need somebody to look out for yours.

At the Law Office of Morrin & Sands PLLC, we can be your advocates. Our lawyers will apply three decades of experience and exceptional problem-solving skills to make sure your claim stays on the right course. We can walk you through all stages of the
process, providing hands-on guidance from start to finish.
