Dispute Resolution For Job-Related Injuries Developed By Repetitive Motion
Although workplace injury claims often require dispute resolution, not every workers’ compensation claim relates to a specific devastating accident or fatality. When employees perform the same tasks all day, every day, the involved motions can cause cumulative trauma injuries.
If you have concerns about cumulative trauma, or repetitive motion, claims, the experienced attorney at Hipp Carlson Law PLLC can help you protect your interests. Based in Long Lake, Minnesota, our lawyer has handled workers’ compensation claims for more than 26 years. We stay current on changes in state and federal workplace requirements and available benefits so we can help you seek favorable results – when necessary, in court.
Common Repetitive Motion Injuries
Unnatural motions, continued repetition, incorrect posture and fatigue can increase the risk of muscle, nerve, joint and tendon injuries. Adequate breaks, stretching exercises and workstation modifications can help alleviate symptoms. However, in some cases, time away from work, physical therapy or surgery may be necessary.
Inflammation increasing pain and stiffness can prohibit work performance over time, affecting all involved. Cumulative injury claims we handle include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Herniated discs
- Lung disease
- Epicondylitis, commonly known as tennis elbow
Our firm also handles mental health challenges related to the stress of cumulative and specific injuries suffered on the job. We advocate cases among various industries throughout Hennepin County. In some circumstances, we can appeal unfavorable judgments.
