In our experience, workers have more rights than they might realize. For example, here in California, we live in one of the states (and there aren’t many) that recognize what’s called a “Cumulative Trauma” Injury. Simply put, it’s an injury that occurs over a period of time, especially at work. You can probably think of many examples off the top of your head: CTE in the NFL, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for an administrative worker, and so forth. When these cumulative trauma injuries occur, you deserve to be compensated for them. That’s where we come in.
Attorneys for Cumulative Trauma Injuries
Many workers don’t realize that cumulative trauma injuries have occurred in their bodies. How many times have you heard someone say something like “that’s just my knees” or “it’s an old work injury?” Those are these injuries that come from cumulative trauma. If you’re working a job for years that makes you have to walk around and carry things, sometimes on uneven surfaces, that can hurt your knees. Should you be in the kind of job where you’re typing for hours and hours on end every day, eventually your fingers and wrists are going to hurt. These are the kinds of injuries that we can help you to get compensation for.
Orthopedic Injuries Over Time
It’s important to stress at this point that “cumulative trauma injuries” don’t have to be physical injuries. You don’t have to have hurt your back lifting crates for years for your injury to count as cumulative trauma. In fact, cumulative trauma can include mental injuries, too. If your job has constantly exposed you to ongoing, ceaseless stress that makes you unable to sleep, that could certainly qualify as well. You may not believe it, but you can be compensated for these.
Injuries Due to Repetitive Job Duties
As not many states recognize cumulative trauma injuries, you need to have attorneys on your side who are very familiar with the law. As you might imagine, not every law firm has attorneys that specialize in these kinds of cases. This is a particular kind of case that requires a highly specialized litigator. That’s where ODG Law Group can help.
