Harmful Motion Injuries
If you suffered a serious injury that was caused by a condition of your work that is characteristic of and particular to your employment, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Harmful motion injuries (also called repetitive stress injuries) occur when the routine parts of a person’s job lead to injuries or illnesses.
If you are suffering from a serious injury that was caused by the harmful motions you do all day at work, it’s important to work with an experienced lawyer who can help you receive the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve. At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we have more than 30 years of experience guiding hurt people and their families through the workers’ compensation process and providing the personalized counsel they need at every step of the way. We represent people in Greensboro and throughout North Carolina in harmful motion cases, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome caused by working in a textile mill and squeezing scissors thousands of times daily
- Brown lung disease caused by working in a cotton mill
- Torn rotator cuff caused by lifting boxes onto a conveyor belt
- Tendon or ligament issues, herniated disks and other orthopedic injuries caused by repetitive or unusual motion
Proving Harmful Motion Injuries
Harmful motion or repetitive stress injuries are caused by repeating the same motions throughout the day. However, in order to prove that the injury was caused by the work environment, individuals must show that the motions they performed daily put them more at risk for the injury than an individual of the general population. They must also prove that their required movements at work caused the injury.
