Repetitive Stress Injury

Seasoned Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Help with Repetitive Stress Injury Claims

Repetitive stress injuries include a number of painful or uncomfortable conditions that involve muscles, tendons, nerves, and other soft tissues. A repetitive stress injury is usually caused by repeated use of a part of the body, typically the neck, forearms, elbows, wrists, hands, or fingers.

Many occupations cause repetitive stress injuries, from working at a computer to performing hard manual labor. The New Jersey law firm of Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq houses a team of passionate labor lawyers who help good, hard-working people like you file workers’ compensation claims for repetitive stress injuries. To learn more about our services, call us today to speak with a workers’ comp attorney.

Learn more about repetitive stress injuries

Experts say that a repetitive stress injury is an injury of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. It is often associated with an occupation that involves repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations, pressing against hard surfaces (mechanical compression), or sustained or awkward positions. Repetitive stress injuries may also be related to continuous use of a computer keyboard. The number of people experiencing these injuries as a result of computer use has been increasing for many years. Repetitive stress injuries may also result from non-work-related actions such as recreational activities, particularly golf and tennis.

Some examples of repetitive stress injuries are:

  • Bursitis: inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between bones, tendons, joints, and muscles. There is pain at the site of the inflammation.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS): a condition caused by compression of the nerve that runs through the wrist area. Individuals with CTS experience numbness and pain in the hand.
  • Epicondylitis: a condition resulting from overuse of the muscles and tendons, especially in the elbow. This is sometimes a sports injury (for example, “tennis elbow” or “golf elbow”) but it is also a common work-related injury in construction and manufacturing industries.
  • Rotator cuff syndrome: inflammation of tendons and muscles in the shoulder.

What to do if you develop a work-related repetitive stress injury

You should notify your employer immediately, and file for Workers’ Compensation benefits through your employer’s insurance carrier. If your claim is denied, or if you are experiencing difficulties with your claim, speak with a workers’ compensation lawyer at Garces, Grabler & LeBrocq.

I was very impressed with the professionalism and quick turn-around time from all the participants from GGL that assisted me. I would like to especially thank my attorney Jonathan Kessous. His credentials are very notable he is one of four attorneys throughout the entire state of NJ certified by the NJ Supreme Court as a Trial Specialist in both Criminal and Municipal Court Law matters. My case was very serious and could have resulted in jail time or suspension of my license. Jonathan was able to resolve my case very favorably. I am extremely thankful for his assistance. I would also like to recognize and thank his Paralegal Jasmin Caba and his Personal Assistant Marianne Crisitello for their assistance in communicating and preparing me for my trial. They are a great team and I would highly recommend them.

Robert White III, Esq. was professional and efficient in every step of the process. From dealing with my Worker's Comp insurance to making sure I got the best care with a skilled neurosurgeon and making sure my case was handled fairly by a judge and the court system. I would definitely recommend Garces, Grabler and LeBrocq for anyone who was in need of representation for such matters.
