Repetitive Stress Injuries Can Stop You From Working

You may be like many people here in New York who think of serious falls, head injuries and amputations when it comes to work-related injuries that qualify for workers' compensation benefits. For this reason, you may discount your aches and pains as just "part of the job," and you may not realize that you may receive workers' compensation benefits for these types of injuries.

Repetitive stress injuries don't occur overnight. Instead, they sneak up on you after performing the same duties for a significant amount of time. These types of injuries include but are not limited to the following:

  • Muscle strain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Bursitis or tendonitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tennis elbow
  • Back or neck injuries

This list does not include all of the debilitating aches and pains you may suffer due to your work duties. Jonathan H. Poznansky, Attorney at Law, will help identify any evidence that points to your job duties as the source of your injuries. We serve clients from New York and New Jersey who work in Staten Island and Brooklyn.

Don't Give Up So Easily

Your injuries may make it difficult for you to continue doing your job, and the stress of wondering how you will support your family during your recovery and beyond may quickly become overwhelming. Your employer or the insurance carrier may attempt to deny your claim. If you do receive a denial, don't give up. Those decisions can be appealed to court if necessary.

You may find that the claims process can be complicated and frustrating, but it doesn't have to be. With the right advice and assistance, you could avoid a delay or denial of benefits. In addition, without the proper knowledge of the procedures and laws governing workers' compensation, you may miss valuable benefits to which you didn't even know you were entitled to.

Our lawyers can help you obtain the benefits you deserve, even if it means going to court. You would have our combined experience of more than three decades at your disposal. We understand the impact that your injuries may have on your life and work diligently on your behalf.
