Protecting The Rights Of Workers With Repetitive Stress Injuries
Many jobs require you to do the same tasks over and over. Typing on a computer, data entry and manufacturing all can lead to severe pain. Sooner or later, a repetitive stress injury will make it impossible to keep working, putting your family’s finances in serious question.
If you are living with a work-related repetitive stress injury, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. At Nelson Law Office, we have been assisting clients in Inver Grove Heights and throughout Minnesota with repetitive task injuries since 1998. Attorney Gregg Nelson has practiced workers’ compensation law for more than 35 years.
What Is A Repetitive Task Injury?
Also known in Minnesota as a Gillette injury, a repetitive stress injury is harm caused by years of unnatural motions, as opposed to a single work accident. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common form of repetitive task injury that affects the wrists. However, repetitive stress injuries can affect virtually any part of the body, including your back, shoulders and knees.
Because it takes so long to come to light, proving that a repetitive task injury is work-related is relatively challenging compared to a more obvious work accident. Nelson Law Office has handled thousands of workers’ comp cases. We work with doctors and other medical experts to create a complete and persuasive case that you are entitled to substantial benefits.
