Repetitive Motion Injuries and Workers’ Compensation Claims
Workers' compensation is not just for traumatic injuries. Some injuries develop over time through the repetition of physical tasks.
Carpal tunnel syndrome and other injuries caused by repetitive stress are not uncommon in today’s office and production environments. Our attorneys understand these injuries and can help you to obtain the workers’ compensation benefits you need to recover. Contact us today.
At CT Injury Lawyers, we represent workers from across Connecticut in all phases of the workers’ compensation claims process. If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or another type of repetitive stress injury, we can help you to recover compensation for lost income, to find and obtain proper medical care, and to recover qualified medical expenses.
Are You Hurting at Work?
Carpal tunnel, repetitive stress, and related injuries are painful and debilitating. Even worse, many people remain at work, continuing to work with pain of carpal tunnel syndrome or other injuries. In many cases, this compounds the problem, as employees are expected to continue working while injured. Even if you haven’t lost time due to a work-related repetitive stress injury, you may still be eligible for compensation.
The workers' compensation process can be confusing, frustrating and fraught with delays. Our attorneys can help minimize these delays and answer your questions about what’s happening, what you can do, and what to expect. We encourage you to ask questions and not to hesitate in expressing concerns at any time.
In particular, hip, knee, ankle, wrist, elbow, ligament, tendon, meniscus, or rotator injuries are painful, debilitating problems that can challenge you for the rest of your life. At CT Injury Lawyers, our attorneys know that repetitive motion injuries require long-term care and support. We have the experience to make sure your claim gets the attention it deserves. We know how the insurance industry works and can get you the financial support you need to move on with life.
Taking Your Repetitive Stress or Strain Injuries Seriously
If you or a loved one has suffered a repetitive stress injury, it is important to consult with an attorney as soon as you are able. You will need to be compensated for your injuries, and litigation may be required to make sure you have the resources to obtain an adequate recovery.
If you are injured at work in the State of Connecticut, you should always report injuries or ongoing discomfort to your supervisor and seek medical treatment. Always remember to tell the doctor how you were injured at work.
Once doctors establish the cause of your injury, workers’ compensation will pay for your medical treatment. If your workplace injury leaves you totally disabled, you are entitled to receive a weekly benefit for the weeks that you are disabled and unable to work - up to 75 percent of your regular take-home pay.
Our attorneys provide individualized service and proven legal representation to injured workers across Connecticut for various types of repetitive motion injuries, including:
- Ligament, tendon, or meniscus
- Rotator injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
When you are injured, it is important to conduct an investigation into the cause of the injury, its nature and extent, and to gather and preserve evidence to support your claim. Experienced repetitive motion injury attorneys will know the proper steps that need to be taken to secure your rights.
