An Aggressive Repetitive Stress Injuries Lawyer in Kingsport, Tennessee Can Help

Injuries that build up over time can be painful and debilitating

People who sustain injuries gradually over time are inclined to think that their injuries don’t count, so they hesitate to report them. But given that repetitive stress injury (RSI) is now considered an actual category of injury, you do not need to continue suffering in silence. If your injury is the result of a repetitive work-related activity, it makes sense to talk to Stephen L. Gilly, a repetitive stress injury attorney in Tennessee, about filing a workers' compensation claim. You are sure to feel relieved once you do.

Repetitive stress injuries are a present-day work hazard

Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) — also known as repetitive strain injuries — are injuries of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems caused by repetitive tasks. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most widely known example of this type of injury. As a rule, repetitive stress injuries restrict movement and cause pain. They make simple daily tasks like grocery shopping, driving a car and even folding laundry difficult and laborious.

Many people fear that they will put their jobs at risk if they acknowledge their repetitive stress injuries. They should not have to fear this outcome. RSI is considered a bona fide workplace injury, and as such, it is compensable by workers' compensation insurance. Moreover, employers are not allowed to penalize workers for reporting such injuries.

RSIs in the workplace can be caused by several things:

  • Sustained computer keyboard activity
  • Heavy lifting
  • Use of power tools
  • Operation of heavy machinery
  • Packing, moving or stacking of boxes
