Workers’ Compensation for Repetitive Motion Injuries

What Is a Repetitive Motion Injury?

A repetitive motion injury, sometimes referred to as a repetitive stress injury, is a type of injury caused by consistent, repeated motions. These injuries typically develop over time, rather than resulting from isolated events, and can lead to a range of symptoms.

Some of the most common symptoms of repetitive motion injuries include:

  • Pain
  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Tenderness

Severe repetitive motion injuries can cause significant pain and may disrupt the affected individual’s ability to carry on normal, everyday activities, such as walking, standing, sitting, taking a shower, brushing one’s teeth, or sleeping.

Examples of Common Repetitive Motion Injuries

Some of the most common repetitive motion injuries include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition caused by pressure on the median nerve, or the nerve that runs from the palm of the hand to the forearm, at the wrist. The median nerve controls sensation in the index and middle fingers, as well as parts of the thumb and ring finger. Carpal tunnel syndrome, therefore, often results in numbness and/or tingling in the palm and these fingers. Over time, an individual may experience weakness and find it difficult to hold or grasp items in the affected hand, as well as perform manual tasks.
  • Tendonitis: Tendonitis (also spelled “tendinitis”) is a condition in which the tendon, or the connective tissue between muscle and bone, becomes inflamed. Tendonitis can appear in the elbow, biceps, shoulder, and other areas of the body. Symptoms include localized pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness. Some severe cases of tendonitis may also result in swelling, redness, and/or tenderness at the site.
  • Bursitis: Bursitis refers to inflammation of the bursa sac, or the cushion between tendons and bones. There are several different types of bursitis, including traumatic and infectious bursitis, as well as gout-related bursitis. Traumatic bursitis is considered a repetitive motion injury, as it results from repetitive motion in the affected area. Bursitis may affect the knee, hip, elbow, or anywhere in the body where bursae are present.

While these represent three of the most common types of repetitive motion injuries, they are not the only ones. Other examples include epicondylitis (“tennis elbow”), stenosing tenosynovitis (“trigger finger”), ganglion cysts, overuse injuries, and cumulative trauma disorders.

Who Is Most at Risk?

While any employee who carries out repetitive tasks is at risk of developing a repetitive motion injury, some workers are more likely to be diagnosed with these medical conditions than others. Those who are required to spend long hours typing or using computers, performing assembly line work, carrying out demolition projects, or conducting similar work tend to have the highest rates of occupational repetitive motion injuries.

Some of the most at-risk workers include:

  • Office workers
  • Data entry workers
  • Administrative employees
  • Computer programmers
  • Developers
  • Writers
  • Healthcare workers, including nurses
  • Grocery store employees
  • Chefs, cooks, bakers, and restaurant workers
  • Agricultural workers
  • Construction workers
  • Electricians
  • Welders
  • Plumbers
  • Installation technicians
  • Maintenance and repair workers
  • Machinists
  • Hairdressers
  • Tattoo artists

If you have been diagnosed with a repetitive motion injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis, and you believe your condition is related to your work, reach out to our team at ‘MAGGIO LAW right away. We can help you understand your legal rights and options when it comes to filing a workers’ compensation claim and collecting compensation for your related expenses and losses.

Compensation for Injured Workers

Covered employees who develop repetitive motion injuries are typically entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, as long as they can prove that their condition resulted from or developed in relation to their employment. If you are eligible for workers’ compensation under Mississippi law, you could be entitled to receive monetary benefits to assist with your medical expenses, lost wages, and other specified covered losses.

At ‘MAGGIO LAW, our Jackson repetitive motion injury attorneys understand the unique challenges injured workers face when filing claims for these types of health conditions. Often, insurance companies dispute the validity of claims, particularly when the employee has a preexisting condition. However, if you can prove that your preexisting condition was exacerbated by your work, you could still be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Why Choose ‘MAGGIO LAW?

We know how to navigate the system on your behalf. Our attorneys are dedicated to recovering the maximum compensation you are entitled to receive under workers’ compensation law. We offer free initial consultations and contingency fees, meaning you do not owe anything unless we recover compensation for you.
