Schaumburg Repetitive Injuries Attorneys

Schaumburg IL repetitive injury attorney

Workers' Compensation Injury Lawyers in Cook County and Surrounding Collar Counties

Many workplace injuries occur from a single accident or event - but not all of them. Sometimes, workers can be injured from performing similar activities over and over again. Repetitive injuries occur gradually over time, and they can have a serious impact on your ability to do your job, as well as other daily activities. Such injuries entitle the worker to worker's compensation benefits.

At the workers' compensation law firm of Grauer & Kriegel, LLC, we can help you obtain the benefits you deserve. We have represented injured workers for over 40 years, and we have the skill and experience to effectively guide you through the workers' compensation process.

Workers' Comp for Repetitive Injuries in Illinois

In order for a repetitive injury to qualify for workers' compensation benefits, it must be sustained during the course of employment. The repetitive action that led to the injury must also be job-related. There are numerous professions that are prone to repetitive injuries, including:

  • Office Workers – The repetitive strain of using a keyboard or computer mouse is a common cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which affects the wrists and hands.
  • Construction Workers – Workers who use jackhammers and other vibrating tools are at risk for repetitive injuries.
  • Forklift Operators – Repetitive neck rotations when driving forklifts can cause injuries.
  • Meatpackers and Butchers – Constantly cutting and slicing meat in a repetitive fashion can cause injury.
