Workers’ Comp Covers Repetitive Stress Injuries
Most people assume that workers’ compensation benefits only apply after an accident. However, it is possible to get workers’ comp coverage for any injury that you develop on the job. This includes injuries that develop over a period of time.
Some Work-Related Injuries Happen Over Time
One of the most common long-term work injuries is a repetitive stress injury, particularly carpel tunnel syndrome and back injuries. These are injuries that develop as a result of repeating the same tasks over and over at work.
At Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, our attorneys have extensive experience helping workers with these types of claims. We can help you understand your rights to compensation and guide you through the process of bringing a claim.
Is Your Employer Denying You Coverage?
After a work injury, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, including a repetitive stress injury. If your employer or their workers’ compensation insurer denies your benefits, you can still take action. It is possible to appeal a denied claim and get the benefits you deserve.
