Cumulative Injuries and Workers’ Compensation Cases

Cumulative injury claims come into play in workers’ compensation cases and settlements. While many work injuries happen as a result of a single accident, cumulative injuries happen as a result of repeated events and exposure over a long period of time.

Because cumulative injuries such as hearing loss, carpal tunnel, and back trauma happen over an extended period of time, proving that they were caused on the job can require medical records and even expert witnesses. 

If you suffered a cumulative injury on the job and are filing an initial work comp claim, have been denied work comp, or are seeing a settlement, don’t go it alone – call an experience workers’ compensation attorney to help you navigate the system.
