If you have held the same job for a number of years, eventually the motions involved in your work can take a toll on your body. If it were not for your job, these conditions would not have occurred. This type of injury is known as a repetitive motion injury, and you could be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
When your body is subjected to overuse, it can lead to chronic orthopedic injuries. In situations like this, the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach can help you file a workers’ compensation claim to receive remuneration for the injuries you have suffered. Located in Encino, California, our firm has been helping workers like you since 1972.
There are a large number of repetitive stress and motion injuries that result from aggravation of your body over time, unlike a specific injury that is the result of a one-time event. These chronic injuries are the result of repeated small injuries that have exacerbated a long-term condition. We have helped hundreds of people successfully seek workers’ compensation benefits for these and other similar conditions, including:
These conditions can be caused by a number of seemingly insignificant daily tasks such as sitting in one position for a long period of time, carrying heavy items or even holding a phone. After spending so many hours working during the week, don’t sell yourself short on your injuries.
It is extremely important in cases of repetitive motion injuries that you seek the counsel of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to help you file your paperwork. These types of cases require special medical care, and the documentation needed for your case can be convoluted and arduous.
Our lawyers can help ensure that you have received the proper care, have the necessary paperwork, can file your claim in the specified time and have sufficient proof of how your injury is work-related in order to make sure your claim is as strong as possible.
