Have You Suffered A Continuous Trauma Injury At Work?
Not all workplace injuries are the results of accidents. Some injuries are the results of months and years of continuous trauma. The damage to the worker is no less, however, and some continuous trauma injuries require extensive medical treatment.
If you have suffered a continuous trauma injury (also known as a repetitive stress or repetitive motion injury) due to workplace activities, you have the right to apply for workers’ compensation benefits. At the Law Offices of David H. Black in Santa Monica, our lawyers are here to guide you through all aspects of the workers’ compensation process. We have the experience and knowledge to handle the most complex workers’ compensation cases in California.
The Dangerous Toll Of Repetitive Work Activities
Our bodies simply were not designed to endure many of the physical tasks our employment demands of us. Continuous trauma injuries have many causes, including bending, stooping, reaching, working with fine parts, typing and operating vibrating equipment.
Some of the most common continuous trauma work injuries include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tendonitis and tendinosis
- Hearing loss
- Vision loss
- Back and neck problems
- De Quervain’s tenosynovitis
- Tennis elbow
Employers use a variety of arguments to limit or deny continuous trauma claims. They may claim your injury was not caused by work duties. They may argue your symptoms are less extreme than you claimed.
We understand that injuries caused by repetitive stress are every bit as painful and debilitating as other workplace injuries. We know how to gather the medical documentation and other evidence required to help our clients obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they need and deserve.
