Illinois Lawyers For Repetitive Trauma Workers’ Compensation Claims

While some workplace injuries happen in a single, traumatic accident, others develop over time with repetitive or cumulative trauma. If you believe that you could have a repetitive trauma injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendinitis, it is important to see a doctor and hire an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

We help those suffering from any type of workplace injury, including overuse or repetitive injuries, obtain the workers’ compensation benefits to which they are entitled. We work with a network of professionals to fully understand the impact of your injury on your ability to work and carry out everyday tasks.

We are a law firm with a special focus on workers’ compensation law, and we will not settle your case for less than what it is worth.

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
  • Tendinitis
  • 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.
