Repetitive Trauma Injuries in Atlanta
Work with an Atlanta Traumatic Injury Lawyer
Many people do not realize their pain and physical problems were caused
by years of repetitive use or trauma at work. In addition, they do not
realize they could be entitled to
workers’ compensation benefits. It is important to know that you do not have to sustain one major accident
or trauma to become injured, as many of our clients have been injured
by doing repetitive work over an extended period of time.
What Are Repetitive Trauma Injuries?
You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits as a result
of repetitive-use injuries (also called repetitive trauma).
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Disc injuries from repetitive bending
- Shoulder injuries from overhead work
- Knee injuries from climbing into and out of trucks
At Cummings & Middlebrooks, LLP, our Atlanta traumatic injury attorneys
know that the pain from a repetitive use injury can be just as real as
the pain from a specific accident.
Could I Have a Repetitive Use Injury?
Repetitive use injuries are most often experienced by people who have jobs
that involve duties that are performed over and over during the day, such
as office jobs with a lot of typing, factory assembly jobs, delivery driver
positions, and warehouse jobs.
Often, people do not realize they have sustained a repetitive-use injury
until it becomes very serious. They may feel tingling or numbness in their
hands, arms, legs or feet for a long time before realizing they have been
injured and the severe pain starts.
If you think you may be experiencing symptoms of a repetitive use injury,
like carpal tunnel syndrome, it is important that you see a doctor as
soon as possible and then contact our law office. Our Atlanta workers'
compensation lawyers help guide you in the right direction.
Comprehensive Guidance for Your Injury Case
If you do not know how to find a doctor, our workers' compensation
attorneys in Atlanta can help. Employers are required by law to have a
panel of physicians available to provide medical treatment for work-related
injuries. If they fail to do so, or if you are unhappy with the physician
they provided, we can assist by ensuring you receive the medical treatment
you need and to which you are entitled.
