Repetitive Use Injuries and Florida Workers’ Comp
Never assume that because you did not have a specific incident or injury, you don’t have a claim!
Repetitive use injury claims can take the form of many different injuries. Too often, injured workers assume that because they did not have a specific traumatic event, they are not entitled to benefits for their injuries or disability. That is not the case.
Repetitive injuries are caused by the continual assertion or strain of a work-related activity. They can be caused by continued heavy lifting or more common repetitive tasks such as machine work or typing.
Neither your employer nor insurance carrier wants you to know that any pain-causing limitation in your activities can be the result of your work activities and entitle you to medical benefits and/or lost wages. Don’t wait until you are in so much pain that your injuries prevent you from working or even completing your everyday tasks at home.
If you have pain in your back, neck, shoulder, knees hands, or wrists as a result of the everyday activities and stresses of your job, turn to our experienced and knowledgeable staff at Berlin Law Firm and give us a call.
