Chicago Attorneys Handling Carpal Tunnel Injuries And More
Repetitive trauma, also referred to as repetitive stress or cumulative trauma, injuries are caused by motions performed frequently in the workplace, such as gripping, bending, pulling, twisting or squatting. These injuries can affect many body parts, including the hands, back, neck, elbows, shoulders and legs. Common injuries resulting from repetitive trauma include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- De Quervain’s syndrome
- Ganglion cysts
- Nerve compression
- Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
Because these injuries develop slowly, many workers make the mistake of waiting to see a doctor until their injuries have become so severe that they can no longer work. Sometimes, people do not contact lawyers until they have left their companies. By then, it may be too late to make a workers’ compensation claim.
