Representing Victims Of Repetitive Stress Injuries
Repetitive stress injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow and other conditions that can make it impossible to do your job. Unfortunately, many employers deny that these injuries are work-related, making it difficult for you to get the rest and treatment you need.
At Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe, LLP, our familiarity with the full spectrum of legal, medical and practical problems associated with a repetitive stress injury can help you obtain a positive resolution of your workers’ compensation case. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and answer your questions. With offices in Harrisburg and Enola, we represent injured workers throughout central Pennsylvania.
How These Injuries Happen
In many types of jobs, workers tend to perform the same motions over and over. These repeated movements can lead to painful conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
In most cases, carpal tunnel syndrome responds well to rest and treatment. Once you have recovered, you may be able to avoid future injuries by performing stretching exercises, taking frequent rest breaks, and wearing splints to keep your wrists straight. Your employer can help by making ergonomic changes to your workstation. Our goal as your attorneys is to help you obtain all of the benefits and services you need to recover as fully as possible.
To ensure you receive the benefits and services you need, our lawyers will help your doctor obtain a clear understanding of the activities you perform at work that led to your injury. If your workers’ compensation benefits are denied, we will represent you in the appeals process.
