All occupations hold the potential of risk to workers. When most people think of work-related injuries, however, the first thing that comes to mind are often single accidents that occur and cause obvious physical harm, such as a broken leg. While these types of injuries are concerning and create financial complications, there are some repetitive motion injuries suffered at work that may be more insidious. Though victims in California are likely entitled to workers’ compensation insurance benefits, many have difficulty getting their claim improved.
Repetitive motions injuries are caused by frequently performing the same motions. Though they may take time to develop, this type of injury is the most commonly reported injury related to work and can be both disabling and painful. Conditions include bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis.
