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

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.
