Did you know that factory workers can receive Workers’ Compensation benefits for injuries that develop over a period of time? This type of injury is called a cumulative trauma injury and results from repetitive use of the same body part or parts. Factory workers often suffer from cumulative trauma injuries to their ankle(s), feet, knee(s), back, neck, shoulder(s) and hand(s) just to name a few. For example, employees may develop carpal tunnel syndrome in the hands or lower back pain from sitting for long periods of time.
If you or someone you know is a laborer and believes they have sustained a cumulative trauma injury as a result of their job, please call our office at (818) 975-3080. Regardless of your profession or immigration status, you may be eligible to receive benefits under the Workers’ Compensation system.
