Suffering From A Repetitive Injury?

When people think about workplace injuries, most envision explosions, fires and other dramatic workplace accidents. What many don't realize is that, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, repetitive stress injuries are the No. 1 cause of workplace injuries in America.

Repetitive stress injuries — while less dramatic than other types of catastrophic injuries — are no less debilitating. Every year hundreds of thousands of workers experience repetitive stress injuries, leaving them with serious physical pain and suffering, and often forcing them to miss work while seeking treatment.

When work duties involve repeated behaviors, the body's nerves, muscles and connective tissues experience repeated wear and tear. Over time, these repetitive motions can result in serious physical injuries that make it impossible for workers to continue performing their job functions. Common types of repetitive stress injuries include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis
  • Bursitis
  • Rotator cuff syndrome

We also help victims of "gradual injuries." For example, workers who may have developed a serious back problem after thirty years of lifting heavy equipment or other hard manual work.

In addition to physical pain, repetitive stress injuries can place entire families under financial strain. Because repetitive stress injuries can be difficult to treat, they often require repeated, long-term medical care, resulting in large medical bills. When injuries force workers off the job, missed wages can make it difficult to pay for needed medical treatments, and keep up with the daily costs of living.

Under Georgia workers' compensation laws, injured workers are entitled to medical benefits and a portion of their lost wages. However, the state's workers' comp laws are complex, and navigating the system alone can be difficult. At Lawson & Reid, LLC, our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of Georgia's workers' comp laws. Together, we will help you file a claim that gets you the benefits you need to pay for medical treatment and continue supporting your family.
