Are Repetitive Stress Injuries Eligible For Workers' Comp?

Repetitive StressPeople working in a wide range of industries suffer repetitive stress injuries. From office workers who use computers all day long to cooks who use their hands constantly, workers across all industries are vulnerable to such injuries.

Damage from repetitive stress can prevent individuals can require extensive medical treatment. It can, moreover, prevent individuals from working. As such, Workers' Compensation benefits are available to injured employees to cover the costs of medical services and loss of income.

Unfortunately, recent changes to New York's Workers' Compensation system have made it challenging to secure the benefits injured workers need. A skilled lawyer may be necessary to help you navigate through the legal process and obtain the benefits to which you are entitled.
