Repetitive Stress Injuries
When working in a job that has you repeating the same physical motion day after day, you could be at serious risk of repetitive stress injuries. Unlike back injuries or brain injuries that are usually brought on by an accident or sudden violent trauma to the body, carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries develop over time.
If you have been hurt at work, an experienced attorney from the law offices of Joel L. Katz, L.L.C., can help you bring a workers’ compensation claim or related claim so you can obtain compensation for your medical costs and other expenses. Serving clients in Annapolis and Chestertown and along the Eastern Shore of Maryland, our lawyers have more than 125 years of experience.
We represent clients in repetitive stress injury claims involving:
- Back injuries: For construction workers, factory workers, nurses, custodians and a range of other workers, heavy lifting is part of the job. Even with perfect ergonomic technique, repeated lifting of heavy objects can lead to a back injury.
- Wrist injuries: Residential and commercial painters, construction workers dealing with vibrating equipment, and other professionals and artisans face a significant risk of wrist injuries.
- Hand injuries: Even seemingly safe jobs like typing and secretarial work can result in carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis and other long-term injuries that can cause tremendous pain, discomfort and lack of mobility in the hands.
These are just a few of the potential repetitive stress injury claims we can handle. We understand how complicated the workers’ compensation process can be, so we are committed to working with you personally throughout your case.
