Repetitive Stress Injuries

Charlotte, North Carolina, Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Repetitive stress injuries are one of the most common types of workers' compensation claims. These injuries affect not only your ability to earn a living, but also your ability to do the things you enjoy outside of work. If you have suffered a repetitive stress injury at work, you should seek legal advice.

I'm lawyer Jeffrey Scott and I represent working people in North Carolina who have been injured on the job. I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your repetitive stress injury case.

Repetitive strain or stress injury (RSI) is the single largest cause of occupational health problems, affecting nearly a quarter of U.S. workers. RSI frequently affects people in manufacturing jobs who sit or stand at a station and do the same task over and over again. They can also affect people who work on keyboards. Examples of RSI include:

  • Carpal tunnel injuries affecting the wrist
  • Cubital tunnel injuries affecting the elbow
  • Shoulder and neck injuries
  • Knee and ankle injuries

If not properly diagnosed and treated, repetitive stress can cause permanent damage to your muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. While the workers' compensation carrier has the right to direct your medical treatment, a lawyer can make sure you are getting the most competent medical treatment available.
