Kansas City Attorneys Handling Carpal Tunnel And Similar Injuries
Repetitive motion or repetitive stress can be particularly challenging for workers' compensation claims due to the amount of evidence required. Insurance companies and employers may assert that a worker's injury was caused by activities outside of the workplace rather than what occurred during employment, and insurance companies are not obligated to pay for injuries related to everyday living.
Some repetitive stress injuries are seen more than others. Some common examples include:
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Shoulder injuries or rotator cuff injuries
Injuries from repetitive lifting
Joint injuries (i.e., knee injury from repetitive bending, overuse of elbows)
Muscle or tendon strain
Loss of vision
Loss of hearing
In many cases, repetitive stress injuries are quite serious as they often involve irreversible damage or result in the need for surgery and extensive time away from work. Our firm can protect your best interests and get the care you need in a repetitive motion injury claim.
