Bronx Repetitive Stress Injuries Lawyer

Work injuries are fairly common in the Bronx. While accidents can be catastrophic, life-changing moments that one can never forget, we often overlook small, nagging stress injuries that can accumulate over time.

For many Americans in manual labor fields, punching the clock each day for months, years, and even decades at a time can wreak havoc on the body. Constant repetitive movements can wear down the joints and ligaments in the body, leading to a much larger injury if not treated in a proper and timely manner. By the time one realizes that something is wrong, they may need serious medical attention or surgery.

A skilled Bronx lawyer can help you pursue the compensation you may be entitled to after suffering from a repetitive stress injury. At Shulman Hill, we can provide you with the exemplary legal counsel that you need for your specific situation. Our repetitive stress injury attorneys can handle every aspect of the case, allowing you time to recover.

Types of Repetitive Stress Injuries in the Bronx

Before starting the process of pursuing compensation, it is important to learn what would qualify as a repetitive stress injury. Some of the most common types of repetitive stress injuries include:

  • Thoracic outlet syndrome. Thoracic outlet syndrome may occur when there is compression of the nerves between the first rib and collarbone.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure on the median nerve. One can develop this injury over time from even the mildest of physical exertion, such as typing.
  • Tendinitis. Tendinitis occurs when there are tears in the various tissues connecting muscles and bones.
  • Epicondylitis. Epicondylitis is inflammation or other irritation of the epicondyle, or other tissues near it and is often found near the elbow.
  • Tenosynovitis. Tenosynovitis includes any inflammation of the lining of the sheath near the tendon.
  • Cervical radiculopathy. Cervical radiculopathy is a condition that occurs when disks of the neck get compressed.
  • Myofascial damage. Myofascial damage can occur when chronic pain is found in more than one pressure point of one’s body.

Each of these injuries can be the result of performing a repetitive action every day as part of one’s job routine. Repetitive stress injuries plague not only construction workers and tradesmen, even office-dwelling workers spending long periods of time at their desks can sustain an injury that may require frequent visits to a doctor. A repetitive stress injury attorney can help you pursue compensation by helping build a workers’ compensation case.

What Causes a Repetitive Stress Injury?

Most jobs require their employees to repeat the same action daily, causing a repetitive stress injury. If the employee is not careful about the way they do their work, these injuries may become noticeable sooner. Some of the jobs that can cause these repetitive stress injuries include:

  • Sewing
  • Painting
  • Cashier scanning
  • Operating a forklift
  • Carrying and moving heavy objects or patients
  • Driving
  • Cutting and sawing
  • Writing
  • Jackhammering
  • Assembly line work
  • Typing and using a computer mouse

If you work in one of these occupations, it is possible you will suffer a repetitive stress injury. Depending on the severity of the injury, you may be able to receive compensation for your losses.

Pursuing Compensation for Your Repetitive Stress Injury in the Bronx

When a repetitive stress injury occurs due to work responsibilities and conditions, it is considered an occupational disease and is covered under New York workers’ compensation law. Attempting to file for this compensation can be complex without prior experience or legal background.

It is not uncommon for workers’ compensation to deny claims—even when the victim has a legitimate injury. Whether you are at the beginning of the process or you need help after your claim has been denied, our team of attorneys can step in to help. Our goal at Shulman & Hill is to help you recover any compensation you may be entitled to.

We often work with medical experts to uncover and find the necessary evidence that will link your specific injuries to the tasks you complete at work. If the medical professional assigned to you through workers’ compensation says you are ready to return to work, but you and your personal doctor do not agree, our team can help file the necessary court documents to get you the continued treatment you need.

While often these conditions are treatable and medical assistance can be enough to help our clients get back to work, there are instances when a repetitive stress injury requires long-term care. This may mean piling up medical bills, as well as lost wages if you are unable to return to work temporarily or permanently.

Why Hire Shulman & Hill?

When you have suffered from a repetitive stress injury, it is important to work with the right legal team to aid you in your recovery. Going through the process alone can be complicated. Your employer’s insurance company may deny your request for your compensation. A Bronx repetitive stress injuries lawyer can help handle every step of the claims process so that you can focus on recovering. This includes negotiations, assistance with finding evidence, as well as managing all of the paperwork.
