Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Help Workers Suffering From Repetitive Stress Injuries

If You Were Hurt Because of Repetitive Motions Demanded by Your Job, We are Prepared to Fight for Your Future

Not every work place injury is the result of an isolated incident. In fact, some of the most serious injuries and conditions develop from doing the same day-to-day activities. These are repetitive stress injuries (RSI), and they lead from mild discomfort to total disability if they are left untreated. At Larry Pitt & Associates, our Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers help workers who have developed RSIs in the course of their work, making them unable to protect themselves or their loved ones. When you are hurt, we know what to do to help.

Common causes of repetitive stress injuries

A repetitive stress injury is one where you repeatedly stress the same group of muscles, tendons and nerves in the course of your job. Some of the most common causes of a RSI include:

  • Bending and lifting objects, common in the construction industry and in warehouses
  • Eye strain, specifically from working on a computer all day or in poorly lit areas
  • Scanning objects, a task frequently performed by retail and grocery store workers
  • Sitting in furniture that is neither ergonomically designed nor the appropriate size for your body, which can cause hip and knee problems
  • Typing and computer work, especially for office workers
  • Using heavy duty construction equipment, tools and machinery, which can lead to elbow, wrist and shoulder injuries
  • Working on an assembly line or performing the same type of factory work every day
  • Sitting in furniture that is neither ergonomically designed nor the appropriate size for your body, which can cause hip and knee problems

Any time you job requires that you repeat a certain movement over and over again, you put stress or strain on that particular group of joints and tendons. These activities can lead to a new injury or exacerbate a pre-existing condition. Your employer is in charge of ensuring that you have the safety equipment and tools you need to keep you safe, and failing to provide them (or failing to provide adequate rest times for you) can lead to a RSI. Under Pennsylvania law, if you can show that your injury is the direct result of the work that you do, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

What Kind of Injuries Can You Develop?

The most common repetitive stress injuries suffered by Philadelphia workers include:

  • Bursitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Diffuse RSI
  • Epicondylitis (referred to as “tennis elbow” or “golfer’s elbow,” depending on what is strained)
  • Raynaud’s disease
  • Rotator cuff syndrome
  • Thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Tendonitis and tendinosis

The Philadelphia workers’ compensation lawyers of Larry Pitt & Associates understand what kind of long-term or permanent damage you might sustain when you perform the same tasks over and over again. We will help you through the application process and coordinate with your doctors and union representatives, if need be, to ensure that your future is secure.
