New Jersey Repetitive Motion Injuries Attorney
When you think of jobs that are likely to cause repetitive injuries, many people think of factory workers. But drivers who are in their truck and out making hundreds of deliveries each week are also at risk. The repeated motions of getting into the truck, shifting the vehicle in and out of gear, and getting into and out of the truck can put added strain on the body. Over time, these daily movements can result in a repetitive work-related injury.
Individuals who perform repetitive actions at work are at risk for a number of repetitive stress injuries. Some of these include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Rotator cuff injuries
- De Quervain’s syndrome
- Ulnar nerve entrapment
- Other injuries caused by repetitive motion
At The Epstein Law Firm, our New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers understand workers’ compensation law and know how to seek maximum compensation for clients who have suffered all types of on-the-job injuries and workplace accidents. We take the time to understand your case, and help you seek the resources needed to make a recovery from your injuries.
Delivery drivers working in the Tri-state area spend a considerable amount of their work on the roadways. The additional time means that they are at an increased risk of being involved in a motor vehicle accident. If you have been injured in a truck accident while working, you can likely seek compensation not only from the workers’ compensation system, but may also have a claim against the drivers of the other vehicles involved in the crash.
In addition, third-party liability claims can arise if you were injured because of the property conditions at a home or business. If you were injured as the result of a slip and fall accident or because you have been attacked by a dog, our office can help you determine if additional sources of recovery exist.
