Injured employees also have the right to file a claim over injuries resulting from repetitive movement or exposure to environmental hazards such as excessive noise, in addition to those resulting from acute incidents such as falls.
Mental stress claims are scrutinized more closely than any other type of workers’ compensation claim. This is because these conditions often lack easily-visible symptoms and are primarily based on testimony from the employee.
If you are out of work due to a legitimate injury, it’s highly likely that you can’t afford to go without income for very long. The last thing you need is additional stress while you focus on your recovery. Delayed claims often force people to go back to work before they are physically ready, which can cause worsened medical conditions later.
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a serious and painful condition that affects the wrist and hand. Without proper rest and treatment, it can eventually necessitate surgery. Many medical experts believe that repetitive stress motions cause or exacerbate the syndrome, especially if you spend the majority of your day on these tasks.
