Claiming Benefits For Repetitive Stress Injuries
Many jobs require repetitive motions that can overtax your body and result in serious injuries, known as repetitive stress injuries. Repetitive motions can harm muscles, tendons and bones and cause long-term pain and injury. These injuries can impact your quality of life and prevent you from completing necessary tasks for your job. Our attorneys can help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits that cover lost wages, medical care and recuperation expenses.

Common Cumulative Trauma Injuries
A cumulative trauma injury can be any injury that develops overtime due to overuse. They occur in all industries, in both physically-demanding and sedentary environments. Several of the most common cumulative trauma injuries include:
- Carpal tunnel
- Back pain
- Tennis elbow
Proving Causation To Gain Benefits
In order to receive workers’ compensation in Ohio, you need to prove that your workplace either caused your injury or severely aggravated an existing injury. This means that you can receive benefits for a pre-existing condition that worsens due to your current role. Since a repetitive stress injury is not caused by a single, traumatic accident, it can be more difficult to prove causation than a typical workers’ compensation claim. Our attorneys have over 50 years of experience. We understand how to formulate a strong case for your injury and can utilize the expert advice of physicians to secure the compensation you need to care for your health.
