Repetitive Stress Injuries

Can I Get Workers' Compensation For Carpal Tunnel Or Another Repetitive Stress Injury?

If you suffered a repetitive stress injury/repetitive motion injury at work, you can apply for workers' compensation. Yet, these cases can be particularly challenging and often require the help of an experienced workers' compensation attorney. Repetitive stress injuries develop slowly over time, making it a difficult task to prove that your job caused your injury, especially when you do other repetitive things involving your hands, shoulders, elbows, knees or other affected body parts.

At Midwest Disability, our work injury attorneys are up to the challenge. We have more than 50 years of combined experience helping people in Minneapolis and throughout Minnesota obtain workers' comp for carpal tunnel syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries.

What Is Repetitive? What Is Stress?

If you do the same motion once a day, is it repetitive? What if you do the motion once every few minutes? What constitutes stress? Lifting 50 pounds? What about punching keys on a keyboard?

Unfortunately, there are no clear answers to these questions. Repetitive stress workers' compensation cases need to be handled on a case-by-case basis. Our attorneys know what to do in your case to prove that your injury was caused by repetitive stress at work, including getting medical support that indicates that work activities caused, aggravated or accelerated your condition.

Help for Workers in All Industries

Repetitive motions happen in many workplaces, from manufacturing to retail, where workers continually scan barcodes, and office jobs, where workers spend hours at a keyboard. In fact, the nature of most work is that the same activities are repeated again and again. When those repeated activities take their toll on the body, our experienced lawyers are here to help.
