Not all work-related injuries are violent or accident-related; some develop over a long time. While many people think of repetitive motion injuries like carpal tunnel as a side effect of doing specific jobs, these injuries can significantly impact your ability to do your job and handle everyday tasks. Suppose you are suffering from a repetitive stress injury. In that case, you can rely on The Law Offices of John M. McCabe, P.A., in Cary, North Carolina, to represent your interests in a workers’ compensation case. We treat our clients like family and fight to make sure their employers and insurance companies treat their cases with the respect they deserve.
Personal injury lawyers help individuals with issues arising from accidents, medical malpractice, and other situations.
If you have been injured in an accident, a personal injury lawyer can help you get compensation for your injuries. They will negotiate with the insurance companies on your behalf, and they may also take legal action against the person or entity responsible for causing your injuries.
We work on a contingency basis for personal injury claims. A contingency fee basis means we do not charge you anything unless we win a settlement in or out of court. This fee structure ensures we work hard for your case and that you don't have even more out-of-pocket expenses during a stressful time. We also offer contingency fee schedules for other practice areas, such as:
Repetitive stress injuries are injuries caused by performing the same motion repeatedly or a combination of motions that cause strain on the body. These types of injuries can be excruciating and debilitating and can even result in permanent disability if they're not treated properly.
The most common repetitive stress injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and bursitis. Carpal tunnel syndrome is characterized by pain and tingling in the hand that occurs when your median nerve gets compressed as it passes through your wrist. Tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons in your wrists, hands, elbows, shoulders, knees, feet, or ankles. Bursitis is inflammation of one or more bursae—tiny fluid-filled sacs between bones and tendons throughout your body. Bursae cushion internal organs from bones and tendons and provide lubrication to ease joint movement.
Repetitive stress injuries often cause damage to soft tissues in the back, wrists, hands, and other body parts. In extreme cases, these injuries can lead to permanent damage. We have extensive experience handling cases involving a variety of injuries, such as:
Because these injuries are not attributable to a specific accident or incident and often take years to develop, employers and insurance companies often try to deny these claims. We understand what it takes to navigate the workers’ compensation system successfully and will stand with you at every stage of the workers’ compensation process.
