When The Same Movements Cause Wear And Tear And Breakdown Of Joints And Tendons
Workers’ compensation benefits are awarded for various types of injuries. These include work-related injuries caused by one-time occurrences (such as falls and other accidents on the job) and also by injuries that occur over time through the performance of repetitive motions at work. At Smith & Griffith, LLP, we can help you determine whether you have a claim and how to move forward.
Repetitive Motion Injuries Are Debilitating
Repetitive motion injuries, of course, are just as legitimate and debilitating as accident injuries when it comes to the need for workers’ compensation benefits. The problem is that these injuries are considered medically complex, and they require proper medical evidence and a certain type of documentation from a doctor (and often an ergonomic expert as well). That means it is harder to win a claim related to repetitive motion injury than a claim related to a workplace accident – especially without an experienced attorney on your side.
We Can Help You With Many Injury Types
At Smith & Griffith, LLP, based in Anderson, South Carolina, we help people who have sustained injuries at work. If you or your loved one was hurt because of a repeated movement required by your job, our firm can assist you in getting the workers’ comp benefits that South Carolina law provides.
- A shoulder injury such as a rotator cuff problem
- A neck or back injury
- Carpal tunnel syndrome or another wrist or arm problem that develops on an assembly line or on other equipment
- A knee injury
- Elbow damage
If your workers’ comp claim involves a repetitive motion injury, make sure you have proper legal advice before proceeding. Call our experienced workers’ comp attorneys before filing a repetitive-motion claim. Do not let your employer talk you into filing a short-term disability (STD) claim instead. It could hurt your case.
