Repetitive Strain Injuries

Seeking Compensation for Gradual Work Injuries

Not every work injury happens in a specific accident or occurs suddenly. Some work injuries are gradual. You may feel pain some days and just think you are working too hard. Later, the pain may become constant, even when you are not at work.

At the Law Offices of Ralph A. Russo, just outside Hartford, Connecticut, our attorneys help clients seek workers' compensation for repetitive strain injuries caused by their work activities. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation with an experienced workers' comp lawyer.

Understanding Repetitive Strain Injuries

If you think of the human body is a machine made up of an enormous number of parts, many of those parts can wear out when they are heavily and repetitively used. Many types of work can contribute to repetitive strain injuries, including the following:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Trigger thumb
  • Tennis elbow
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Herniated discs

Employers in Connecticut are legally responsible for taking appropriate steps to avoid repetitive strain injuries and compensating employees when they suffer those injuries.

Under workers' compensation law, if you have suffered a repetitive strain injury as a result of your work duties, you may be entitled to medical treatment, wage replacement benefits and a lump sum settlement.

Seeking a Diagnosis of the Causes of Your Injury

Not every repetitive strain injury is work-related. Some repetitive strain injuries have other causes, such as playing sports or a musical instrument. In order to get fair compensation, you will need to consult a doctor who is experienced at diagnosing the causes of repetitive strain injuries.

Our lead attorney, Ralph A. Russo, is a Board Certified Connecticut Workers' Compensation Specialist. He has the experience to help you through the process of obtaining a diagnosis and getting the compensation you deserve.

If you are suffering chronic pain or any other symptom of a repetitive strain injury, don't hesitate to contact us. We do not charge attorney's fees unless we help you earn compensation.
