GREENVILLE REPETITIVE STRESS INJURY LAWYER
Workers at factories, industrial plants, warehouses, offices and other work locations are often required to perform repetitive work tasks as part of their jobs. These tasks may include lifting, bending or applying pressure to the hands, wrists, knees, back, shoulders, carpal tunnel or elbows. Repeating the same muscle movement each day for multiple hours can result in repetitive trauma injuries (sometimes referred to as repetitive stress injuries).Repetitive trauma injuries may result from daily typing leading to carpal tunnel, damage to your hearing from loud work noises, damage to your shoulder or knees from repetitive work tasks, damage to your back from repeated lifting and bending, and other damage to the body from repetitive work tasks. Per South Carolina workers’ compensation laws you may be entitled to compensation. Consulting with a workers’ comp attorney serving the Columbia, Greenville & Orangeburg areas is a wise move.
Workers who have sustained a repetitive trauma injury as a result of performing their work duties are entitled to receive wage benefits and necessary medical benefits. Repetitive trauma injury cases can be complex because an employer or its insurance carrier may argue that your injury was caused by other nonwork-related factors. You will need a skilled workers’ compensation attorney who knows how to work with your doctors to gather the evidence necessary to establish the cause of your injuries and obtain the benefits you are entitled to receive.
