Is Your Job Causing Cumulative Trauma Injuries?
At Steppacher Law, we help injured workers from various industries and employment backgrounds seek compensation for any type of job-related injury. For over 40 years, our firm has fought for the interests of injured Pennsylvania workers, including those suffering from various types of cumulative trauma injuries.
Wear-and-tear injuries, sometimes called repetitive stress or cumulative trauma injuries, develop over time by performing the same tasks or repeating the same motions. Any type of worker can develop a wear-and-tear injury, and they may require medical care, time away from work and additional types of support. Regardless of the nature of your work injury, our attorneys will diligently pursue the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.
A Rightful Claim To Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Workers suffering from injuries that develop over time have the same right to seek workers’ compensation benefits as individuals injured in one-time incidents. Wear-and-tear injuries can be painful, debilitating and affect your ability to do your job. Our lawyers can help you complete your claim and seek compensation for any type of cumulative trauma injury, including the following:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Torn rotator cuffs
- Back, neck, and shoulder injuries
Various types of injuries can develop in the neck, back, shoulders, hands and in other parts of the body after months or years of performing the same job. Our goal is to help you get the money you need for treatment, therapy and other types of support you may require to get better and move forward.
With wear-and-tear injuries, aggravating the condition by returning to work too soon can lead to additional problems and more pain. If you are experiencing pressure from your doctors, employer or insurance companies to get back to work before you are ready, we will fight to ensure you have the appropriate amount of recovery time necessary for your particular injury.
