Workplace Repetitive Stress Injury
Repetitive use injuries often occur after prolonged performance of work tasks involving fine manipulation with the fingers and hands, reaching, bending, twisting and lifting. Engaging in repetitive work activities day after day, week after week, can wreak havoc on joints, nerves and tissues that are not adapted to endure constant mechanical stress.
Common repetitive stress injuries include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome: Marked by shooting pain in the wrists or numbness and tingling in the fingers, it is often caused by typing, using a computer mouse or performing assembly line work using the fingers, hands and wrists for fine manipulation.
- Hand-arm vibration syndrome: This is caused by using vibrating power tools such as jackhammers or sanders. Symptoms include numbness, tingling and pain to the affected area.
- Arthritis: Joint and spine inflammation can be caused by a variety of repetitive tasks in the workplace.
If your claim has been denied or you want to make sure you get all the benefits you are entitled to, remember, don’t go it alone. Our lawyers can even the playing field, providing you with the aggressive representation you need to obtain full workers’ compensation benefits for your repetitive stress injury.
