Attorneys You Can Count On After A Repetitive Stress Injury
Not all workplace injuries are the result of specific accidents. Some injuries occur after months or years of repetitive stress. If you have suffered a repetitive stress injury at work, it is important to consult with an attorney who is experienced in this type of workers’ compensation claim.

The Origins Of Repetitive Stress Injuries
Many types of job activities can result in repetitive stress injuries. Common job activities that lead to this type of injury include:
- Computer use: Both typing and operating a mouse for long periods can result in a repetitive stress injury. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common injury suffered by office workers and others who operate a computer at work.
- Scanning bar codes: Prolonged use of scanning equipment can also result in a repetitive stress injury. Grocery and retail store cashiers are especially vulnerable to this type of injury.
- Use of vibrating power equipment: Use of jackhammers, drills, chainsaws and other equipment can cause hand-arm vibration syndrome, another common repetitive stress injury.
- Assembly, soldering, inspection and packaging: All of these activities can cause serious injuries.
