It is common for workers' compensation insurance carriers to deny coverage for repetitive stress injuries (RSI) such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSDS) or tendonitis. Insurance companies rarely pay benefits for such injuries without a fight. The assistance of an experienced, dedicated lawyer is a valuable source of information, support and advocacy in the fight for workers' compensation benefits or other insurance-based compensation for medical expenses and lost wages.
Have you injured your back or a joint (shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle or wrist) because of repetitive actions on the job? Contact us at the law offices of The Bollinger Law Firm, P.C. to discuss factors that may apply in your repetitive motion injury or occupational disease case such as the following:
- The diagnosis: does your doctor understand your injury and agree that it was caused by repetitive motion on the job?
- Treatment plan: have you done all that you can to help yourself get better?
- Lost wages: have you lost out on earnings because you have had to take too much time off work, have had to downgrade your position to one that requires less repetitive motion or have had to stop working altogether because of your injuries?
If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, and you have a valid workplace injury or occupational disease case, we are prepared to fight for your rights to benefits. You may qualify for compensation for medical expenses and wage replacement when you lost time from work because of a repetitive stress injury that occurred within the scope of your employment.
