Repetitive Stress Injury Lawyers in Tennessee
The human body is an amazing machine. But enough wear and tear on the same tendons and muscles every day can eventually take its toll. These injuries can take weeks, months or even years to develop, but are no less painful then injuries resulting from an accident. When your work environment involves repetitive motions ranging from heavy lifting to repetitive manufacturing line tasks, repetitive stress injuries occur.
Your employer and their insurance carrier will likely do everything in their power to make your injuries look less serious and you need an experienced workers compensation attorney on your side to get the benefits you deserve. Call Rocky McElhaney Law Firm at 615-425-2500. We take repetitive stress injury claims very seriously and will fight to get you the compensation you deserve!
What is a repetitive stress injury (RSI)?
A repetitive stress injury is an injury that occurs from any kind of repetitive motion. Many jobs require the same task to be repeated hundreds of time per day, putting strain on the same tendons and muscles. This strain can cause damage making you more susceptible to injury.
Due to there not being an “accident” to blame for your injury, these workers compensation claims can be difficult to prove. However, repetitive stress injuries can be extremely painful and make day-to-day life difficult. Some frequently known examples of repetitive stress injury include tennis elbow (which can result from any activity), carpal tunnel syndrome and De Quervain’s Tendinitis.
What jobs are most susceptible to RSI?
Repetitive stress injuries can occur in almost any kind of workplace. However, in some it occurs more frequently than others. Jobs involving loading trucks, lifting boxes, stocking shelves and other types of repetitive manual labor are most likely to result in repetitive stress injury, due to the high amount of strain on the muscles and tendons. These injuries can occur in any workplace though, and if you are injured on the job we strongly recommend calling Rocky McElhaney Law Firm today and taking advantage of our free consultations.
