Workers’ compensation often covers RSIs

| Feb 2, 2019 | workers' compensation

Repetitive motion injuries are a result of cumulative trauma caused by putting a repeated strain on certain tendons, muscles or bones. Arizona workers who suffer from this condition also called cumulative trauma disorders, regional musculoskeletal disorder and occupational overuse syndrome might be eligible for workers’ compensation if it occurs as a result of performing their duties at work.

Medical News Today reports that the first repetitive stress injury description was by an Italian physician in 1700. At the time, this type of condition primarily occurred in industrial workers. Today, everyone from video game enthusiasts to office and construction workers is susceptible to RSIs. Not only are there many kinds of RSI, but there are also many ways to treat it, as it can affect virtually every movable part of the body.

Awkward or sustained positions, vibrations and repetitive tasks cause injuries of this nature. There has been an increase of cases in recent years by individuals who work on computers, using the keyboards, mouse, or detail-oriented work that requires a steady hand. Physical stress and monotony can make existing symptoms worse.

According to FindLaw, repetitive motion injuries account for almost 20 percent of workplace injuries. This includes conditions from bursitis to carpal tunnel and tendonitis. To receive workers’ compensation, injured workers must prove the injury results from duties required at work. Even those injured at a previous job can get compensation if the necessary tasks for their current position aggravate a preexisting condition.

Repetitive stress injuries can affect not only job performance but other areas as well, affecting the overall quality of life. Correctly filing a claim can be challenging, and time-consuming. Working with a professional, experienced in the intricacies of workers’ compensation law, can help ensure the process goes as smoothly as possible.
