Staten Island Repetitive Stress Injuries Lawyer

Every job comes with some degree of risk to workers’ health and safety, even if it is an office job. Most jobs require employees to perform similar tasks and movements on a daily basis. Even if they appear harmless—like typing or walking up and downstairs to deliver packages—they can cause repetitive stress injuries over time.

If you are struggling with a work-related overuse injury, review your case with a Staten Island repetitive stress injuries lawyer at Shulman & Hill. You may be able to seek compensation for your medical bills and loss of wages. Our attorneys can go over the details of your case and discuss your options during a free legal consultation.

Staten Island Repetitive Stress Injuries: Common Causes

A repetitive stress injury, also known as a repetitive strain injury, occurs when a person routinely performs a task that may eventually cause damage to their muscles, tendons, and/or other parts of the body. Potential causes of a repetitive stress injury include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Lifting patients in a hospital or similar healthcare setting
  • Operating certain types of heavy equipment
  • Working on an assembly line
  • Typing or using a computer mouse
  • Staying in one position for a long time
  • Digging

Injuries resulting from these tasks come in a variety of forms, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tearing of tendons, and stress fractures. If you are not sure whether an injury you have sustained qualifies as a work-related repetitive stress injury, it may be helpful to consult a doctor.

If you are pursuing compensation for a work-related injury, our law firm has the resources you will likely need for your case, including access to medical experts who can help explain the cause and effects of your injuries.

Signs of Staten Island Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries are unlike accident-related injuries, such as broken bones, because they develop over a longer period of time. One may not realize they have sustained a repetitive stress injury right away, so it is important to look out for symptoms like:

  • Unexplained muscle weakness
  • Endurance problems
  • Clumsiness
  • The frequent need to change your posture and movements in order to comfortably perform certain tasks
  • Numbness, stiffness, or tingling
  • Frequent aches and soreness

If you have noticed any of these symptoms, seek medical assistance right away. The sooner you receive treatment, the more likely you can slow the progression of your injury. Consulting a doctor may also help strengthen your workers’ compensation claim in the future.

Repetitive stress injuries often require long-term treatment that may be expensive, including medication, physical therapy, and even surgery. They can potentially deprive you of your ability to work as well, making you struggle to pay for your medical treatment if you are unable to earn a paycheck.

You might not have to absorb the cost of such losses by yourself. It is possible you can seek compensation for your losses by filing a workers’ compensation claim. Connect with the workers’ compensation experts at our law firm near Staten Island to learn more.

How Our Staten Island Repetitive Stress Injuries Law Firm Can Help

The law requires most New York employers to have workers’ compensation insurance. If you have developed a repetitive stress injury resulting from performing certain tasks and movements at work, you may file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.

Pursuing workers’ compensation benefits can sometimes be complex, which is why we strongly recommend that you hire a Staten Island repetitive stress injuries lawyer to help you throughout the process. Our lawyers can help in the following ways.

Gathering Evidence

Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer may look for reasons to deny your claim, particularly if you are seeking compensation for repetitive stress injuries. Since these injuries occur over a longer period of time, it can sometimes be difficult to prove that such an injury is work-related if you do not have expert assistance.

This is among the key reasons it can be extremely beneficial to work with a repetitive stress injuries law firm when filing a claim. If necessary, our Staten Island workers’ compensation attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case, gathering evidence to demonstrate why you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Our attorneys can review your medical records, consult with experts, and review your work history to help prove your case.

If an insurance carrier still denies your claim, a qualified workers’ compensation attorney can represent you in a trial. A judge will then issue a decision on whether or not you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Handling the Claims Process

Pursuing the compensation you may be entitled to after developing work-related repetitive stress injuries involves many tasks. You might have to submit paperwork, correspond with insurance adjusters, coordinate with medical professionals, and more.

Handling these tasks on your own when coping with an injury can be difficult. Our Staten Island repetitive stress injuries lawyers can handle these tasks on your behalf while you focus solely on your health and getting back on your feet.
