Repetitive Stress Injuries Qualify For Workers' Comp

Every day you go to work and do the same job, your muscles work in the same way, and your tendons and joints experience the same strain. After years — or in some cases months — of repeating the same movement, day after day, your body may begin to wear out and injuries can develop.

Did you know?
Your work injury doesn't have to be caused by an accident. Injuries caused by cumulative trauma due to repetitive motion also qualify for workers' compensation. You may also be entitled to disability benefits.

For more than 30 years, I — attorney Gary M. Kazin — have been helping workers who suffer from repetitive stress injuries obtain workers' compensation benefits. I can help you. To discuss your case, call me at 866-397-5116. Consultations are free.

Injuries Caused By Cumulative Trauma, Repetitive Motion And Overuse

If you are a Georgia worker who is unable to work because of carpal tunnel syndrome, ligament or tendon damage, chronic back pain or another injury resulting from your job tasks, call me, Gary Kazin.

I am recognized as one the leading workers' compensation claims lawyers in the state. I know what the Georgia State Board of Workers' Compensation expects to see in the way of evidence and medical support, and I exhaust all options to help you get the medical treatment and wage benefits to which you are entitled.

Some types of qualifying repetitive stress injuries suffered by workers are:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: Compression of the key nerve running through your wrists and forearms
  • Torn rotator cuff: Tears of any of the four tendons of the rotator cuff muscles in the shoulder pivot joints
  • Tendinitis: Inflammation of the tendon
  • Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa sac between tendon and bone
  • Epicondylitis: A form of elbow tendinitis caused by overuse and generally referred to as tennis elbow
  • Ganglion cysts: Swelling around joints and tendons in the hand or foot
  • Ruptured disk: Slow or sudden leakage of spinal fluid from any one of the vertebrae disks in the spinal column
  • Knee injuries: Torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) or lateral collateral ligament (LCL), often resulting from stress and overuse

I also handle common workplace musculoskeletal injury claims resulting from conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
