Obtaining Compensation for Repetitive Motion Injuries

Colorado work injury attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm help you obtain treatment and wage loss benefits for pain caused by repetitive motions at work

Sometimes workplace injuries do not occur from just one event but from a series of events over time. These injuries are many times caused by repetitive motions that are the norm for so many occupations. Injuries stemming from repetitive motions account for just under 4% of workplace injuries according to Liberty Mutual's Injury Index.

Repetitive motion injuries can occur in a wide variety of cases, including:

•  Constant bending and lifting in a warehouse, factory or delivery job

•  Repetitive hand motions from working on an assembly line

•  Continuous typing on a computer keyboard in an office environment (carpal tunnel syndrome)

•  Constant bending and lifting common to many construction trades

Whatever the cause of an on-the-job repetitive motion injury, enlist the help of a Colorado work injury attorney to ensure you receive the necessary treatment and compensation for your injury.

Many employers will contest injuries that can't be attributed to a specific event. This can leave you in permanent pain with no recourse

Unfortunately, some employers and their insurers try and reject claims like this. Pain in your arms, neck and back though will only continue to get worse if you somehow manage to continue doing the motions that got you hurt.

And not only is the pain unpleasant, it can eventually cause permanent disabilities if you don't have it treated.

Hiring an experienced work injury attorney helps you cut through the red tape and get the help you need. Repetitive motion injuries like the ones outlined above are covered under workers' compensation in Colorado.

So if you think repetitive motions at your job are causing you pain, contact Denver work injury attorneys at the Babcock Law Firm today to discuss your case.
