The lawyers at Meyer Thorp Attorneys at Law, PLLC represent employees in the Spokane area and throughout Washington who develop repetitive stress injuries on the job over the course of months or years of work. Workers’ compensation doesn’t just apply to those who suffer single accidents on the job: it also provides benefits for employees who become injured due to repetitive motions caused by repeated tasks or extended exposure. With these types of injuries, workers may sustain damage to their wrists, their backs, their knees, and other body systems over the course of their employment. If you have suffered a work-related injury due to repetitive motion or long-term exposure, our knowledgeable and trustworthy attorneys can help you pursue the benefits you deserve.
Our bodies aren’t designed for factory work or office jobs where we must repeat the same motions over and over again. Those actions can strain muscles and tendons, even when there is no heavy lifting involved. In fact, an activity as basic as typing can cause a debilitating condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. This injury affects the median nerve, which runs the length of the arm, passes through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, and ends in the hand. Carpal tunnel symptoms such as tingling and numbness in the fingers and pain in the wrist and hand are common reasons for extended absences from work.
We have successfully helped injured workers get workers’ comp benefits from their employers for these and other types of repetitive motion injuries:
If you’ve suffered one of these injuries or another condition related to your work activity, we will seek the compensation you deserve for medical costs, lost wages, and other losses covered by workers’ compensation.
In addition to handling claims for clients who’ve suffered repetitive stress injuries, our firm represents workers whose long-term exposure to environmental conditions on their jobs have injured or sickened them. We are advocates for employees such as factory workers who’ve suffered hearing loss due to sustained loud noises or have been injured from repeated exposure to machinery vibrations. We also handle claims for workers whose jobs require them to handle chemicals when they’ve suffered toxic exposure over time. In these and other situations, our experienced attorneys will help you through the process of applying for workers’ compensation benefits and appealing a claim denial.
At Meyer Thorp Attorneys at Law, PLLC, in Spokane, we provide skilled representation to workers throughout Washington who’ve suffered repetitive stress injuries or illnesses on the job. We will seek the workers’ comp benefits you’re entitled to and vigorously appeal denials of your claim. Call us at 509-533-1511 or
