Repetitive stress injuries from work can leave you without income

When people think about workers' compensation, what comes to mind often is a worker getting hurt in an unexpected accident at work. Whether there's a machine malfunction, a fall or a chemical spill, these kinds of accidents frequently lead to quick and simple claims. The result can be workers' compensation benefits in the wake of work-related injuries or ailments.

Injuries that develop over time can prove more complex when it comes to seeking the compensation and benefits you deserve. It can take some time to gather the necessary information to document the injury. Your employer could attempt to argue that your condition isn't related to your job, and it could take some time and effort to successfully resolve a claim. However, don't let that deter you. Repetitive stress injuries from work can and should qualify you for workers' compensation, just like a sudden traumatic accident will.
