Cumulative Trauma Injury from Over Use

Hello, I’m Ched Jennings, Founder of the Jennings Law Offices in Louisville. Did you know injuries occurring over a period of time are eligible for Kentucky workers’ compensation benefits?  This type of injury is called an overuse or cumulative trauma injury, often due to repetitive work duties.

Repetitive motions could affect your neck, back, shoulders, wrists, hands, knees and even includes hearing loss. Some common examples are:
– Carpal Tunnel
– Cubital Tunnel, and
– Torn Rotator Cuffs

The insurance companies and their doctors might tell you your pain is simply part of the aging process. They may tell you it’s arthritis or a pre-existing, degenerative condition.  They don’t want you to think you have a work-related injury.  It’s because they know they’d have to pay for it.

I’m going to tell you your repetitive or overuse job duties, performed over time, are actually work injuries, which entitle you to Kentucky workers’ comp benefits.  These benefits cover medical expenses including visits to the doctor, surgery, medication, rehabilitation and medication.  You shouldn’t have to pay for these just because of the type of work you do.  You have rights under Kentucky law.  As your workers’ comp lawyer, I’ll do my best to make sure you get the benefits and treatment you deserve and need.

Don’t assume your pain and symptoms are happening just because you’re getting older. Understand your repetitive job duties played a role in your cumulative trauma injury.  Once we prove the pain and other symptoms are related to your work, we can file for workers’ compensation.

We can tale about this and more, during our initial interview.  There is no charge for your initial interview.  Contact our office to schedule time to discuss your situation.  Our office phone number is (502) 583-3882.

Again, I’m Ched Jennings. Thanks for Listening.
