While most workplace injuries are associated with construction sites, industrial plants and other dangerous workplace environments, many people don’t realize how common it is for workers to suffer from repetitive stress injuries. These injuries are common in many jobs, and they can be quite serious. If you are suffering from repetitive stress injuries, make sure you work with an experienced, knowledgeable lawyer who can help you receive the compensation you need.
At The Law Offices of Goldfine & Bowles, P.C., we can help you. With decades of experience, our attorneys know how to obtain maximum compensation for our clients. We represent clients in Peoria, Bloomington and Galesburg, Illinois, in workers’ compensation, third-party claims and other related claims.
Common Repetitive Stress Injuries
We represent clients in repetitive stress injuries involving:
- Typing: Carpal tunnel syndrome and other related injuries commonly result from secretarial work, data entry, copy writing and other jobs that require a great deal of typing.
- Heavy lifting injuries at work: Our lawyers represent construction workers, industrial factory workers and others whose jobs require the repeated heavy lifting that can cause back, neck and related injuries.
- Other occupations: Almost any type of action, if repeated consistently over a long period of time, can lead to a repetitive stress injury, even if the movement itself is not particularly taxing. We represent clients in all occupations who have suffered repetitive stress injuries.
Recent changes in workers’ compensation laws in Illinois have reduced the compensation available for many repetitive stress injuries. Our lawyers understand the laws and know how to maximize your compensation through all potential avenues, including third-party claims, insurance coverage and other means. We can help you obtain full and fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered.
