Repetitive Stress Injuries

Dealing With Work-Related Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are some of the most common work injuries. Unfortunately, these injuries often go untreated, leading to chronic pain that can affect your ability to work and earn a living.

It is important to take RSIs seriously, because you could be eligible to obtain workers’ compensation to cover your medical bills and any lost wages. Stapp Law, LLC, can help you recover your rightful compensation for a workplace injury. I am Greg Stapp, founding attorney of Stapp Law, LLC. I have protected the best interests and rights of injured workers in Williamsport and central Pennsylvania for over 20 years.

The workers’ compensation process is often complex, and your employer’s insurance company may try to deny you the full benefits you deserve. I will put my experience to work for you to guide you through the system. My goal is to make the process as smooth as possible for you, so you can focus on recovering and taking care of your injuries.

Common Symptoms Of A Repetitive Stress Injury

You could suffer persistent pain without obtaining the proper medical care for your RSI, including:

  • Stiffness or aching of joints
  • Tingling sensations or numbness
  • Severe muscle cramping

The wrists, rotator cuffs and neck are the most common parts of the body affected. This pain could limit your ability to work or prevent you from working altogether.

Obtaining Compensation For Any Workers Suffering RSIs

Workers can develop RSIs from a wide range of work-related activities. The most common example is an office worker who suffers carpal tunnel syndrome from extensive typing. However, many other employees are at risk for RSIs, including:

  • Cashiers or store clerks
  • Construction workers
  • Warehouse employees
  • Factory workers
  • Meat packing workers
  • Data entry employees

It is important to inform your employer of your injury and contact Stapp Law, LLC, as soon as possible. I will help you understand your options to obtain the full medical and financial compensation you deserve. Pre-existing conditions are covered if they are aggravated by your job activities.
