Injuries Caused By Repeated Physical Actions At Work
Some workplace injuries are caused by a specific event such as a fall from a ladder or machine malfunction. However, there is another class of injuries whose effects can be just as disabling. A repetitive strain injury to the back, neck, shoulders or hands occurs over time, through repeated motions that injure nerves, tendons or muscles.
If you are suffering from a repetitive strain injury caused at work, call us, the workers’ compensation lawyers at Berger & Michelena: 213-624-9999.
Workers’ compensation insurance companies often deny claims involving repetitive strain injuries. They may assert that the injury was preexisting or that it was the result of nonwork activities. In some cases, they may say that there is no objective medical evidence to prove the existence of the injury.
If you have suffered a repetitive strain injury to your hands, neck, shoulders or back, you know all too well that your pain is real. And when your work injury and the pain it causes limit your ability to work, you have the right to claim workers’ compensation benefits.
