Is My Injury A Workers' Comp Injury?

When you are injured at work by a fall or other incident, it is easy to pinpoint the injury as a work injury. When an injury develops over time, however, it can be more difficult to identify the source of the injury. Although you may not believe that your injury is work-related, it may be the result of repetitive actions that have caused cumulative trauma. If you are unsure whether your injury is work-related, the workers’ comp lawyers at Telpner Peterson Law Firm, LLP, will evaluate your case to determine whether pursuing workers’ compensation is an option.

What Is Cumulative Trauma?

Cumulative trauma injuries can manifest as back injuries, joint problems or nerve injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. These injuries can lead to severe discomfort and lost sleep, as well as an overall reduction in your quality of life. They can also require extensive physical therapy and even surgery and prevent you from working.
