A Note on Repetitive Stress Injuries

Repetitive motion is one of the most common causes of workplace injury. The stress can accumulate over time, eventually leading to a debilitating injury that may become chronic. Repetitive stress injuries (RSI) take the form of carpal tunnel syndrome, edema, tendinitis, "tennis elbow," knees, backs and other ailments. These claims can be a challenge legally, but David Yokel embraces the opportunity to help people suffering from RSI.

In addition to physical ailments and injury, a workers' compensation claim also can be brought for a mental ailment, such as depression, that can develop as a result of the chronic pain endured or as a result of a mental injury without any physical injury under very specific circumstances. Under these situations, consultation with an attorney is very necessary and should be done immediately.
