Minnesota Attorney For Injured Data Entry Workers
Data entry workers tend to perform the same motions over and over, which can lead to repetitive stress injuries. Unfortunately, many employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers tend to deny that these injuries are real. At Midwest Disability, in Minneapolis, we take the health and well-being of office workers very seriously. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have more than over 50 years of combined legal experience representing data entry workers in Minneapolis, St. Paul and throughout Minnesota who have been injured on the job.
Types Of Data Entry Worker Injuries
Examples of data entry worker injuries include:
- Neck and upper back pain: Data entry workers often experience debilitating neck and upper back pain.
- Computer vision syndrome: This syndrome encompasses a range of eyestrain and pain from prolonged staring at a computer monitor.
- Shoulder pain: Repetitive motions can lead to injuries to the shoulder joint or to the muscles, ligaments and tendons that make up the rotator cuff.
- Keyboard injuries: Continuous use of a keyboard can lead to nerve damage and injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
If your condition prevents you from doing your job, you may qualify for medical care and wage replacement benefits for as long as your disability continues. If you have group or individual long-term disability insurance, our attorneys are skilled at helping you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to, no matter how hard insurance companies work to deny claims.
