Workers’ Compensation Claims For Specific And Cumulative Injuries
Some workplace injuries are the result of a specific incident while others occur over time and may result from repeated work activity. A broken leg, for example, typically results from a specific accident, while chronic back pain and repetitive stress injuries are common cumulative workplace injuries.
An injured worker may qualify for workers’ compensation with either type of injury. It is generally more difficult to collect benefits for a cumulative injury, but an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help.
