When can we talk about repetitive work injuries?
Repetitive work injuries can happen in almost any type of occupation, especially in those where working conditions lend themselves to the development of injuries caused by the lifting of heavy loads, and repetitive use of some type of machinery or industrial equipment, among others.
Each of the injuries that arise from these types of cases, which usually generate intense pain in specific parts of the body, can be considered repetitive work injuries and require specialized medical treatment to prevent damage that may prevent the worker from suffering injuries that can be permanent.
What kind of injuries can arise from repetitive work?
There are many injuries that can arise from repetitive work. Most of them may start as minor and passing injuries, so it is important to pay close attention to them to avoid complications that may worsen the victim’s health.
Some of the most common repetitive work injuries are as follows:
- Fractures due to weight lifting or stress.
- Carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Cubital tunnel syndrome.
- Trigger finger.
When developing symptoms that indicate possible repetitive work injuries, such as any of the above, it is important to seek medical attention and report the injury to the employer or work supervisor, so that the process can be initiated to allow the victim to receive the compensation he or she deserves.
Why should you have the support of employment lawyers?
