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.

Johnathan Kessous did a fantastic job handling my case. I hope i never need his expertise again...but if I do, he would be my first choice for legal representation. I had gotten a speeding ticket on the NJTPK going 84 in a 55 which resulted in a state trooper issuing me a 5 point ticket. Johnathan got it reduced down to zero points... just a fine.

I had the good fortune of Mr. Pasquale Vella representing in a matter that I had deemed a bleak one, with no positive outcome in sight. Vella assured me that he would work hard to get me the best results possible, and that is exactly what he did. He worked tirelessly making sure he covered all possible angles, and in the end I was extremely pleased with his services. Vella proved to be diligent, aggressive in yielding results, and very professional, all while maintaining a communicative yet good natured rapport with me as his client. I would most certainly use his services again in the future as well as highly recommend him to anyone in need of a great criminal defense attorney.

My uncle had some problems with meals at a Monmouth Count assisted living home. The home charged over $5,000 per month and he was not being offered food that he liked on many occasions and his complaints did not resolve the issue. I called Garces & Grabler on his behalf and they sent an attorney to the home to first speak with my uncle, then speak with the director. Within a few day, his dietary needs were met. Everything was resolved amicably and the law firm charged, in my opinion, a very reasonable fee for their services.
