Are repetitive motion injuries covered under workers’ compensation in California?
I recently had a conversation with a long-term employee who, over time,vhad injured themselves by the repetitive motion within her job. Day in and day out, she did the same type of work. Over the years, she noticed that her pain related to her arms, including her wrist, kept getting worse and worse. She said there wasn’t one specific day that she actually got injured; that she just noticed that her condition got worse and worse over time and that she was having a difficult time sleeping at night, holding things, and could really feel that after numerous years working at the employer that her condition was getting worse.
She asked me whether or not that type of claim was covered. I told her 100%. That’s what we call an accumulative trauma claim or repetitive motion claim. If you have an injury that you believe that you’ve sustained over an extended period of time, it’s important for you to reach out to an attorney that can assist you. If I can help you with that process, feel free to give me a call. I’d love to answer those questions for you.
