Proving that your repetitive motion injury is disabling may hard

Whether you work in an administrative position, are a bartender or are an X-ray technician, you likely engage in repetitive motions each day on the job. Repeating the same tasks over and over again can cause tendons, bones or muscles to be overused, resulting in repetitive stress injuries such as bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis. These chronic conditions can make it difficult for you to continue working in the same capacity that you once did.

According to FindLaw, as many as 20 percent of all injuries that occur in the workplace are repetitive motion injuries. Fortunately, most states' workers' compensation programs provide coverage for these types of injuries. In order to qualify for workers' compensation benefits for a repetitive motion injury, you must be able to prove that the tasks that you're asked to perform at work have either brought about your condition or made it worse.

If your condition first came about while you were working for a former employer, yet you didn't apply for workers' compensation, then that generally means that you've lost your chance to have your medical bills covered. You may, however, qualify to receive workers' compensation if your condition had previously been treated or subsided and then reemerged at your new job.

It's important to remember that even if you don't qualify to receive workers' compensation coverage for your injury, you may instead qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments. A Dauphin workplace illness attorney reviewing your case will want to know more about the onset and progression of your condition, as well any prognoses that a doctor has given you before giving you sound advice on your disabling condition.
