Cumulative Trauma Injuries
To perform at your job, you need to be ready and able to work every day. Seemingly minimal injuries can, over time, jeopardize your future in that area of work. Many employers try to deny repetitive stress or cumulative trauma injury claims, asserting that they cannot be linked to job-related activities.
In the past, the type of work you were engaged in played a substantial factor, but the decision was also influenced by age, genetics and various other circumstances. Now the type of work is the primary factor. Some injuries, including rotator cuff tears, used to be approved easily under workers’ compensation. Now, it is common for employers to point at arthritis, age and other non-work-related factors.
