Illinois Attorneys Fight for Victims of Repetitive Stress Injuries
Workers’ compensation lawyers assert the rights of clients injured on the job in the Chicago area
At The Law Office of Raymond L. Asher, Ltd., our tenacious attorneys represent employees in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois who develop repetitive stress injuries on the job over the course of months or years of work. Workers’ compensation doesn’t just apply to those who suffer single accidents on the job: it also provides benefits for employees who become injured due to repetitive motions caused by repeated tasks or extended exposure. With these types of injuries, workers may sustain damage to their wrists, their backs, their knees, and other body systems over the course of their employment. If you have suffered a work-related injury due to repetitive motion or long-term exposure, our firm provides tireless advocacy, pressing for the benefits you deserve.
Assertive Illinois advocates handle a range of repetitive motion claims
Our bodies aren’t designed for factory work or office jobs where we must repeat the same motions over and over again. Those actions can strain muscles and tendons, even when there is no heavy lifting involved. In fact, an activity as basic as typing can cause a debilitating condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. This injury affects the median nerve, which runs the length of the arm, passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, and ends in the hand. Carpal tunnel symptoms such as tingling and numbness in the fingers and pain in the wrist and hand are common reasons for extended absences from work.
At The Law Office of Raymond L. Asher, Ltd., we have fought for injured workers to get workers' comp benefits from their employers for these and other types of repetitive motion injuries:
- Tendonitis and tendinosis
- Back strain and disc injury
- Knee and ankle injury
- De Quervain syndrome (inflammation of the tendons that control thumb movement)
- Epicondylitis (tennis elbow)
If you've suffered one of these injuries or another condition related to your work activity, you can count on us to pursue the compensation you deserve for medical costs, lost wages, and other losses covered by workers' compensation.
Proven litigators handle claims involving long-term exposure
In addition to handling claims for clients who've suffered repetitive stress injuries, our firm represents workers whose long-term exposure to environmental conditions on their jobs have injured or sickened them. We advocate for employees such as factory workers who've suffered hearing loss due to sustained loud noises or have been injured from repeated exposure to machinery vibrations. We also file claims for workers whose jobs require them to handle chemicals when they've suffered toxic exposure over time. In these and other situations, our experienced attorneys will work to get you the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve and vigorously appeal a claim denial.
