A shockingly high number of people suffer injuries due to repetitive job duties every year in the United States. Caused by making the same movement again and again without respite, many workers in America failed to have the injury properly assessed, and also don’t report cumulative trauma injuries. It is estimated that the accounts of repetitive strain injuries are underreported by around 60 percent, and in particular that workers compensation claims are not being sought as frequently as they could be. Workers may fail to report the injury for a number of reasons, not least because they are concerned about their continuing employment if they make a record of their injuries.
Struggling With Simple Movement?
Often, by the time the worker realizes that they need to receive medical treatment for their problem, the injury is too severe for them to carry on working in their previous occupation. This is because each small movement that they make during repetitive work duties exacerbates the tissue damage, and there are fact doing more harm to themselves by continuing to work. If you are in this situation, then you may need to get help for your problem in the form of medical treatment, as well as taking time off work in order to recover. In order to do this, it will most likely be necessary to make a compensation claim against your employer.
