Workers Compensation Repetitive Stress Injury Claims
Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are injuries to the musculoskeletal and nervous systems that may be caused by repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, mechanical compression, or working in sustained or awkward positions. We represent workers in manufacturing and factory occupations, as well as office and administrative employees. However, a repetitive stress injury can occur in any job that requires an employee to hold a position for many hours at a time.
If you injured your shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle or wrist because of repetitive actions on the job, you may need the help of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. It is common for workers’ compensation insurance carriers to deny coverage for repetitive stress injuries (RSI) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS) or tendinitis. Insurance companies rarely pay benefits for such injuries voluntarily because they can be difficult to prove they occurred on the job. We often see clients who have you done all that they can to get better, but have lost wages or cannot return to work, and have had their workers’ compensation claim denied.
