Cicero’s Repetitive Stress Injuries

Lake County Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

According to the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, if you are employed in a manual handling job, you are at a higher risk for Cicero’s repetitive stress injuries than people in other types of work. These common workplace injuries can be found among people in product assembly, people who lift and care for physical therapy patients, people who are performing office or clerical work, and people in construction.

Essentially, repetitive stress injuries are caused by activities you engage in on a regular basis as part of your job. Similar to lifting injuries, this activity may build pressure through muscle compression, vibration or awkward positions as well as repetitive motions like typing. Sometimes, the pressure can develop into injuries requiring surgery as well as the need for extensive physical therapy. It may not even be possible for you to return to the same type of job you had before. This will mean you may need to develop new skills and seek a different type of employment.

Injury Benefits

If you are struggling with a workplace injury, it is important to take the right steps to strengthen your claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Our injury lawyers here at Strom & Associates can answer any questions you have and provide guidance as you go through the initial process. This includes providing your supervisor with a short, accurate account of the incident and then immediately visiting a medical facility to receive treatment.

When you arrive at your doctor’s appointment, you should give the name of your employer rather than your personal health insurance information. The doctor will record the facts about the injury, and it is critical for you to acquire a copy of this report and keep it with other important information about your case.

Client Testimonials

Hope your weekend was relaxing. Donald and I wanted to take the time to say thank-you for the great job you did for us on Friday. We weren't sure what to expect, but you put us both at ease and it proved to be an insightful learning experience. I believe there are times that we are so busy with our day to day responsibilities and often forget to remember the simple words of appreciation. Friday reminded me that we have a terrific lawyer in our corner and that has taken some of the load off.
Much Thanks & Appreciation, - Donald & Robin
