Helping Workers With Repetitive Use And Continuous Trauma Injuries
Repetitive stress injuries can be just as serious as the more obvious and dramatic injuries that occur at work, like back injuries, lost limbs and head trauma. However, it is often more difficult to obtain workers’ compensation benefits for repetitive use and continuous trauma injuries than it is for the more obvious injuries. How bad is the injury, really?

Are Repetitive Stress Injuries Insignificant?
Repetitive stress injuries can seriously impact a person’s quality of life. In addition to the fact that most repetitive stress injuries cause significant pain, swelling and muscle weakness, most of these injuries are progressive and only continue to get worse over time and continued use. Further, there is often no way to cure this type of injury, so the symptoms could last a lifetime.
With the possibility of lifelong damage, discomfort and limited working capacity, it is critical to obtain the full measure of workers’ compensation possible. At Kiwan & Chambers, APC, we will fight to help you through the process, whether you are recently injured and initiating a claim, or your claim has been denied and you need to appeal.
Am I Eligible For Workers’ Compensation?
Without looking at the specifics of your case, it is impossible to tell. However, it is important to note that California, compared to most other states, has a very lenient standard when it comes to awarding workers’ compensation benefits to people for repetitive stress injuries. Workers suffering injuries that occur in white collar office jobs generally have a good chance of being awarded the benefits they need.
