Some injuries cannot be tied to a single incident. Repetitive strain injuries are the cumulative effects of prolonged activities such as using a jackhammer or typing. These injuries can lead to severe discomfort and lost sleep, interrupting your ability to work without the distraction of pain. Fortunately, workers’ compensation is available to workers with repetitive stress injuries. At the law office, we take forceful action on behalf of workers with repetitive stress injuries.
Repetitive motion can cause injuries such as:
- Tendinitis in the elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Rotator cuff injuries
Georgia Tendinitis Injury Attorney
Attorney will thoroughly investigate your case to determine whether the injury is related to your work and to identify the responsible party. Injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome can surface over the course of a multidecade career that involves more than one employer. In that case, we will usually file the claim with the most recent employer.
When you reach the point where you can no longer perform the task, such as typing, that caused your injury, notify your employer and speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. Attorney holds a master’s degree in rehabilitation counseling. He has represented hundreds of clients with repetitive stress injuries. Workers’ compensation can cover the medical care that you need to restore your health.
Diseases that arise from the workplace may be covered under workers’ compensation, but there are special rules that must be followed. If you have a work-related disease, you will see better results if you work with a lawyer who has experience with occupational diseases. Attorney has been representing workers suffering from occupational diseases since 1978.
Occupational diseases can include:
- Sulfuric acid exposure
- Benzene exposure
- Hepatitis infection resulting from a needle stick in a hospital setting
- Asbestos exposure
- Mold exposure
Proving that your condition is a viable occupational disease requires extensive knowledge and experience. Attorney has a thorough understanding of occupational diseases and will pay personalized, thorough attention to your case to determine whether you have a viable claim.
Insurance companies will often investigate your case to determine that you had a pre-existing condition, and that the employer is not responsible for your illness. A skilled lawyer is essential for combating tactics like these.
