Repetitive Motions Can Cause Nerve Damage and Other Serious Injuries

While workers who are injured in accidents on the job are often eligible for workers' compensation benefits, workers who suffer injuries due to occupational and repetitive motion are also eligible for these benefits. Unfortunately, these injuries are not always as easy to outline. Symptoms may not happen until after the worker gets home and may build up over time. Proving a repetitive injury may be difficult without the assistance of an experienced attorney.

At Hendrickson & Edelstein, Attorneys at Law, in Lakewood and Barnegat, our lawyers represent workers in Ocean County, Monmouth County and throughout New Jersey who have suffered injuries to the back, neck, shoulder, legs and joints due to repetitive lifting and motion on the job.

Even if you had a pre-existing condition, if that condition was made worse due to repetitive activity on the job, you may be able to recover workers' compensation benefits to pay for medical treatment and lost wages. Contact us online today.

Common Repetitive Stress Injuries

These types of repetitive stress injuries can happen over time: Lifting heavy bags of concrete; pushing around heavy loads; turning at the waist while lifting objects; constantly typing for eight hours a day. Any of these repetitive motions can result in an injury, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ruptured disks
  • Back strains
  • Knee injuries
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Heart attacks
  • Occupational exposure

Employers and insurance companies may question how and where these injuries have occurred and try to mitigate damages by declaring that they were not caused on the job. In these cases, especially involving injuries that are not immediately obvious, an experienced attorney can protect your rights.
