REPETITIVE TRAUMA INJURIES OCCUR OVER A PERIOD OF TIME
Repetitive trauma can happen over a few weeks, or months or years. You may not realize that the aches and pains you feel are actually from work-related activities or events.
You may be eligible to receive Workers' Compensation benefits because of a repetitive trauma injury that is often erroneously attributed to aging or the degenerative process. If you have had a diagnosis of arthritis, degenerative joint disease, chronic fatigue or fibromyalgia, you may have a repetitive trauma injury.
Dennis Thomas and the attorneys at Thomas Law Alliance, Inc., in Huntington Beach, California, know that recurring medical issues or symptoms such as joint pains in your wrists, elbows, shoulders or neck might be caused by repetitive activities at work. Additionally, back pain, hip pain, knee pain or ankle pain might be caused by work activities and not just normal aging.
The classic repetitive trauma injury is carpal tunnel syndrome. But this is hardly the only injury that could lead to a successful Workers' Compensation claim.
Someone who has been performing the same activity for a number of years, such as operating a piece of machinery, could be slowly but surely experiencing a repetitive trauma injury. Even someone who has worked on a hard surface for a number of years and is experiencing knee pain might be suffering from an industrial injury.
