Specific Workers’ Compensation Injuries

There are a couple of ways that you can be eligible for Workers’ Compensation. Either you can be involved in a singular incident that causes an injury or there is the possibility of an overuse injury. These injuries, also know as Repetitive Strain Injuries, do not have a singular origin. Over time, the stress put on your body by doing the same motion can add up and leave you unable to do your job. This type of industry particularly affects those who work in industries that require manual labor.

How an Attorney Can Help

No matter how the injury occurred it is important to consult an attorney. An attorney that specializes in workers’ compensation can help ensure that you are indeed eligible for workers compensation and ensure you get the compensation that you deserve. In the case of a Repetitive Strain Injury, you are responsible to prove that this injury only occurred because of work. An attorney knows how to gather the proper documentation and evidence to prove your claim.
