Compensation For Injuries That Develop Over Time

Many workplace injuries occur as a result of an accident on the job. But, many are surprised to learn that a significant number of injuries covered by workers' comp are those that develop over time.

What Kinds Of Injuries Develop Over Time?

Known as repetitive stress injuries, these injuries often affect joints, muscles and tendons that are used for a particular task again and again throughout your job. Such injuries include:

  • Carpal tunnel
  • Tendinitis in the shoulder, elbow, or knee
  • Bursitis
  • Stress fractures
  • Lumbar injuries

These injuries occur in nearly every industry. Landscapers and agricultural workers might experience a repetitive stress injury from heavy lifting. Office workers whose jobs involve a lot of typing or answering phones can experience carpal tunnel and other injuries. Someone operating a machine or press in an industrial occupation can develop injuries to tendons or muscles.
