Did You Develop A Workplace Injury Slowly?
Not all work injuries are the result of an accident. Injuries can develop slowly, over a long period of time, simply from doing your job. These are known as occupational injuries.
Employees injured at work, whether in an accident or over time as a part of their jobs, are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can help you cover the cost of your medical expenses and treatment, as well as your lost wages if you are unable to work.
If you have suffered an injury as a result of your job, the attorneys at Rogan & Associates LLC can help you with your claim. We are skilled at handling workers’ comp claims in New Jersey and New York. Contact our firm to learn more about our services and how we can help you.
Examples Of Injuries From Repetitive Stress
The most common type of occupational injury is a repetitive stress injury (RSI). This could include:
- A typist or office worker developing carpal tunnel, wrist or hand injuries
- A warehouse employee developing a back injury from lifting
- Construction workers having elbow or wrist injuries from the use of tools
These are just a few examples of the multitude of professions and jobs that can result in an RSI or other occupational injury.
