Repetitive stress injuries are also known as cumulative trauma, repetitive strain injuries, and overuse injuries. These types of injuries can result in different conditions and symptoms but often involve pain, numbness, tingling, reduced range of motion in the affected area, or loss of strength or coordination. Employees may have a claim for RSIs when the injury renders them unable to perform their job or even complete simple, everyday actions. If you have experienced any of these symptoms and believe repetitive stress is to blame for your injury, we can let you know what your options are.

Dedicated lawyer seeks workers’ compensation in RSI claims

Many occupations require certain motions and actions to be repeated, creating a harmful impact on one or more parts of the body. Some of the conditions that are categorized as repetitive stress injuries include:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome — Pain, numbness and tingling in the hand and fingers can result from this condition, caused by pressure on the median nerve. This nerve runs the length of the arm and passes through a passageway in the wrist known as the carpal tunnel. Repetitive motions that compress the wrist such as typing on a keyboard and using a mouse or prolonged exposure to vibrations from using hand or power tools can all lead to carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Lateral epicondylitis — Also known as tennis elbow, this injury is a painful inflammation of the elbow joint, and the pain is typically felt upon straightening or fully extending the arm. This condition is usually suffered by those who use hammers, screwdrivers or computers on a regular basis.
  • Prepatellar bursitis — An inflammation of the bursa in the kneecap, also known as prepatellar bursitis, causes pain, swelling, and redness in the affected area. Prepatellar bursitis is suffered by those whose jobs require them to kneel for long periods of time, so it is common for carpenters and plumbers.

If you have experienced any of these repetitive motion injuries linked to your job,  you might be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for lost wages, medical costs and other types of damages. As a personal injury attorney experienced in assisting clients with these claims, Kim David Staskus can help you get the benefits you deserve while you’re unable to work.
