Repetitive Stress Injury Compensation

In order to prove a workers compensation case, it’s not required that the work be the sole cause or the primary cause, it just has to be proven that the work was a causative factor. At Joseph E. Hoefert, Attorney at Law, P.C., I help my clients prove that their work activities were a cause of repetitive stress injuries such as:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Cubital tunnel
  • Degenerative joint disease
  • Bursitis

As an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer, I am equipped to help injured workers with all aspects of their claims and appeals. I have extensive experience dealing with the insurance companies, who will often try to delay or deny benefits for repetitive trauma injuries. I will carefully examine your case to determine the best course of action to seek the benefits you need and deserve.

Hand and Wrist Injuries

Repetitive stress is the cause of many hand and wrist injuries. Also, people who work with saws, blades and other sharp objects are vulnerable to injuries of the hand and wrist. Unguarded or unsafe machinery can lead to cuts, crushed fingers, accidental amputations and a wide range of other hand and wrist injuries. These injuries can make returning to work very difficult, which is why it is important to have a knowledgeable workers’ compensation lawyer on your side.
