Repetitive Stress Injury Lawyers in Costa Mesa to Help You. Servicing all of Orange County
Obtaining workers’ compensation benefits for your workplace injury
If your job requires you to perform the same movements over and over, you are susceptible to a repetitive stress injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome, which occurs over time and causes damage to the median nerve of the wrist. While it may not be a dramatic type of injury, it is painful and can cause you significant hardship. The attorneys at Tous Law Group have handled hundreds of workplace personal injury cases and we are fully equipped to help you with your case.
Types of repetitive stress injuries
There are several types of repetitive stress injuries. Some of the types of injuries we can help you with include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome. The first symptoms of carpel tunnel are often numbness in the hand that wakes you during the night. The tingling and numbness begin to occur more frequently in the wrist, thumb and hand, with the pain sometimes radiating down the arm.
- Tendinitis. Tendinitis is pain or a dull ache that occurs when you move the affected limb. The area where the damaged tendon attaches to the bone is often tender, and mild swelling may occur.
- Cubital tunnel syndrome. Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs when there is increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. The result is numbness, tingling and pain felt in the elbow, forearm, hand and fingers.
- Tennis elbow. This injury often has very little to do with playing tennis, since it can occur with any activity that requires repetitive gripping. Tennis elbow is pain in the elbow and arm that is caused by swollen tendons.
Let our repetitive stress injury attorneys help you recover the compensation you deserve for your workplace injury.
