Aggressive Representation for Work Injuries in Greater Los Angeles and Surrounding Areas
Workers in many different industries are susceptible to injuries caused by repetitive stress. Performing the same motion in your job may not seem hazardous at first, but over an extended period of time, these motions can cause strain to your ligaments, nerves, and other body parts. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Meliora Law Firm can help you pursue compensation for repetitive stress injuries, also known as cumulative trauma injuries in the workplace.
Types of Repetitive Stress Injuries
From lifting heavy objects on a daily basis to typing on a keyboard, cumulative trauma injuries can be caused in a number of ways.
A few examples of common repetitive stress injuries include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cervical radiculopathy
- Tennis elbow
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Stress fractures
Though your employer is required to have insurance to cover workplace injuries, this does not mean they will pay easily or quickly. We can help you pursue the benefits you need to recover, such as rehabilitative therapy, medical care, and time off from work. If your claim was denied, we can assist you with the appeals process.
