Workers’ Comp Covers Repetitive Stress Injuries

Some Work-Related Injuries Happen Over Time
One of the most common long-term work injuries is a repetitive stress injury, particularly carpal tunnel syndrome and back injuries. These are injuries that develop as a result of repeating the same tasks over and over at work.
At The Paris Law Group, PC, our attorneys have extensive experience helping workers with these types of claims. We can help you understand your rights to compensation and guide you through the process of bringing a claim.
Is Your Employer Denying You Coverage?
After a work injury, you can file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, including a repetitive stress injury. If your employer or their workers’ compensation insurer denies your benefits, you can still take action. It is possible to appeal a denied claim and get the benefits you deserve.

- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Spinal cord injuries and other back injuries
- Injuries to joints, such as elbows, shoulders, and knees
