Some Injuries Are Not Immediately Apparent
It’s easy to prove you’ve sustained a work-related injury when it’s visible to the naked eye, like a broken bone or a nasty cut. It can be harder, though, to convince your employer that you have sustained an injury due to repetitive motion. These injuries can take months or years to build up, and the primary problem is usually just invisible chronic pain.
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Lester Friedman understand that work-related injuries take many forms, and that many industries require workers to engage in repetitive actions that wear down joints and muscles. Whether you are a factory worker operating a machine, a construction worker pounding nails, or a secretary filing papers, we can help you document your injury so that you can claim the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled.
Get The Benefits You Need To Manage Your Pain
When reporting a repetitive motion injury to your employer, you may be asked: Why now? If you’ve been operating the same machine for a year, why has it only caused pain for a month? What changed? We can help you explain the gradual nature of repetitive motion injuries, and help you understand exactly how workers’ compensation benefits can be applied.
If you are not sure whether your symptoms count as an injury, we can direct you to medical service providers who can help you make that determination. But if you regularly take aspirin or some other pain reliever during or after work, there’s a good chance that you are suffering from a work-related injury.
