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 Minnesota work injury 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 Who Have Repetitive Stress Injuries
Repetitive motions happen in many workplaces, from manufacturing to retail, where workers continually scan bar codes, 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.
