Baltimore Repetitive Motion Injury Lawyers
Repetitive stress and cumulative trauma injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS), are very common in many occupations. People who work with computers, at cash registers, on assembly lines or in warehouses often suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome. CTS can lead to temporary or permanent disability. If you can no longer do your job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation.
Repetitive stress injuries may cause a lifetime of pain or disability. It is possible to collect workers’ compensation benefits for CTS, other repetitive stress injuries and occupational diseases; however, you may need a lawyer’s help. Your employer may contest the date of onset and/or disability.

The Debilitating Effects Of Repetitive Stress
Many workers suffer occupational injuries caused by repetitive motions and muscle overuse, affecting the nerves, muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints. Workplace repetitive motions and actions may include lifting, bending, pulling, working gears, typing and standing for long periods.
In addition to carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive stress injuries can include:
- Cubital tunnel syndrome
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Degenerative disk disease
- Neck and back strain
The effects of carpal tunnel and repetitive stress injuries can be long-term and debilitating. People may have symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, a cold sensation, and swelling in the fingers, wrist and forearm.
We have the workers’ comp experience to prove that your injury was caused by your working conditions. If your claim is denied, we will appeal and pursue it until we get results for you.
