Repetitive Strain Injury

Attorney Gilbert Fisher can help determine the causation of the injury so that you receive the benefits you are entitled to under the law.

The Damage Caused by a Repetitive Strain Injury

If you perform the same task every day, all day long, you could be at risk of suffering a repetitive strain injury. For instance, workers who type for the majority of their work day use certain tools and equipment over and over. Workers who engage in the same action for a prolonged time as part of their job are more likely than other workers not engaged in repetitive motions to suffer this type of injury. The damage can be severe, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, or tennis elbow. These conditions may prevent you from doing your job properly, or doing your job at all.

Symptoms and Body Parts Affected by Repetitive Strain Injuries

If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms you may have a repetitive strain injury:

  • Swollen wrists or hands
  • Tingling along your arms, neck, or shoulders
  • Throbbing in your arms 
  • Stiffness in joints such as knees and elbows
  • Tender muscles and ligaments
  • Sensitivity to temperature (extreme cold or heat)

Many people immediately think of office and desk work as the type of jobs where repetitive strain injuries occur. However, there are many other professions where it is likely a worker can experience an RSI. Cleaning service staff, chefs and other kitchen staff, construction workers and other labor intensive jobs, and commercial truck drivers are just a few of the types of jobs where an RSI is common.
