Repetitive Stress Injuries

Alexandria, Virginia Workers’ Compensation Attorneys – 571.290.2390

Some of the worst and longest-lasting injuries you can suffer in the workplace are not caused by a single accident, but instead by numerous repetitions of a specific action or motion. Repetitive stress injuries (RSI) can occur in almost any work setting, but they tend to occur in office spaces where workers conduct a singular type of work for long hours. For example, typing on a keyboard for 40 or more hours a week can start to wear down the fingers, wrists, and forearms to the point of injury or debilitation.

If you have suffered an RSI due to your occupation, come to The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC and our workers’ compensation lawyers in Alexandria. We are the trusted legal team in Virginia when it comes to standing up for the rights of injured workers. Find out what our 30+ years of collective legal experience can do for you and your workers’ comp claim by contacting our law firm today.

Consequences of a Repetitive Stress Injury

An RSI can afflict any part of your body, as long as that body part regularly performs singular or similar motions throughout the day. If you are feeling chronic pain, soreness, or stiffness that goes beyond regular muscle aches, it might be a sign of an RSI. Be sure to see a medical provider if your condition is persistent or worsens, and let your employer know if their diagnoses relates to the injury of your occupation.

Common injuries or health conditions associated with repetitive stress injuries are:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome or arthritis from typing or writing
  • Lower back pain from lifting product or cargo
  • Knee injuries from jobs that keep you on your feet
  • Neck stiffness from sitting upright all day

In any situation, if the injury is related to your occupation and limits your ability to complete your expected job duties, you should be able to collect workers’ compensation through a successful claim. Benefits granted should include temporary wage replacement and the cost of necessary medical care, at least.
