Repetitive Stress Injuries

After diligently performing your job duties for years, or even decades, you may experience pain or other injury symptoms as a result of a repetitive stress injury. These injuries occur when a particular part of the body is overused or subjected to repetitive movements.

Many workers believe that they must have suffered a single traumatic injury to pursue workers' compensation. However, employees affected by repetitive stress injuries are entitled to benefits under workers' compensation laws in Missouri and Kansas.

Attorney John A. Christiansen has represented workers suffering from a full range of repetitive stress injuries, including:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome, which is common among employees who perform repetitive tasks involving their hands and wrists
  • Back injury, shoulder injury or disc herniation caused by repetitive strain or lifting
  • Hearing disorders caused by excessive exposure to loud machinery
  • Arthritis and repetitive strain injuries (RSI) caused by joint stress
  • Allergies and lung problems from repeated exposure to toxic chemicals or other dangerous materials

Repetitive stress injuries affect all kinds of employees — not just office workers who use a computer every day. Our firm represents industrial workers, truckers, construction workers, health care professionals and other workers who perform repetitive physical tasks at work.
