New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Attorney For Repetitive Stress Claim

Unlike the typical workers’ compensation case, there is no one accident or event that causes a repetitive stress injury – it is a task such as typing, loading supplies on a shelf, or lifting boxes from the floor that is repeated again and again. A New Jersey repetitive stress injury lawyer helps employees recover the benefits they deserve from repetitive stress injuries (also known as repetitive strain injuries) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder impingement syndrome, or degenerative disc disease.

Repetitive Stress Injuries Common In The Workplace

A repetitive stress injury (RSI) occurs over time as the result of repetitive, forceful, or awkward body movements. RSI usually occurs in a wrist, hand, shoulder, elbow, back, knee or ankle. Symptoms include pain, swelling, inflammation, numbness, tingling, stiffness, and loss of movement. The repetitive motion may involve lifting of heavy loads, repeated pressure against a sharp surface, or an awkward posture held for long periods of time. Temporary and long-term damage can result in muscles, tendons, and nerves of the neck, shoulder, forearms, hands, legs, and back. Additionally, the injured person may have difficulty in grasping objects. Common repetitive stress conditions include the following:

  • Tendonitis (Whether it is from clerical work, typing, or running a jackhammer)
  • Tenosynovitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • De Quervain’s Disease
  • Bursitis and rotator cuff impingement syndrome
  • Epicondylitis (Trigger finger)
  • Chronic back pain, lower back strain
  • Ganglion cysts
  • Herniated disk
  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Hand-arm vibration syndrome
  • A mental disability or psychiatric problem resulting from daily stress (such as that experienced by a policeman)

Occupational Disease, Toxic Exposure

Many workers are exposed over time to dangerous levels of toxic chemicals. A current or former employee suffering from cancer caused by toxic exposure, including lung, stomach, colon, and throat cancer, leukemia, and mesothelioma is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. A firefighter is exposed to carbon monoxide, workers in food manufacturing facilities are exposed to flour dust and particles of oils, a railroad employee is exposed to asbestos in the train’s brakes, and an office worker may be exposed to mold and other carcinogens in a faulty ventilation system. Our attorneys will help you with your claim for medical benefits, income benefits, permanent disability, or, if you have lost a spouse or parent, survivor’s death benefits for toxic exposure.

Representative Cases

Our client, a nurse at a long-term care center, suffered a work-related herniated disk injury in her back. As a result of her preexisting medical condition and her herniated disk, the court found that the client was totally disabled and awarded the client lifetime weekly disability payments and medical coverage for life.
