Repetitive stress injuries at work are caused by repetitive motion or repetitive strain. These injuries result from overuse of certain body parts including the arms, neck, and hands. These injuries can cause damage to tendons, nerves, and muscles from both overuse or misuse. An employer can suffer trauma from this repetitive task over a long period of time, leading to a workplace injury. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a work-related repetitive stress injury, our workers’ compensation attorney at Kantrovitz & Associates, P.C. can discuss the benefits you’re entitled to in Massachusetts.
