Cumulative injuries: The basics
Injuries at work are even more common than you would think. There are two types of injuries one may obtain at work: specific type injury and cumulative trauma injury. The first one is, as the name states, specific injuries such as falling down, injuring your head, while the latter represents the injury that is a result of a hard work and exhaustion, accumulated over time. Cumulative trauma injuries can lead to vision lost, hearing loss, carpal tunnel syndrome, stress injury, emotional injury, etc. These injuries require immediate medical treatment, and entitle the injured individual to financial benefits issued by the state’s workers compensation program.
If you or someone you know received a cumulative trauma injury, you may be eligible to receive financial benefits from the state-issued worker’s compensation program. Contact one of our knowledgeable attorneys from Atlanta Workers Compensation Attorneys group to learn more about eligibility, the program and other state programs which help injured individuals.
Once you give us a call, we will offer to schedule a free initial consultation for you, where you will be able to learn more about your options, programs and how to file for workers compensation claim. You won’t be obliged to hire our attorneys after the consultation, but if you choose to do so, you will receive an experienced attorney working on your case the very next day.
Another thing to keep in mind is that all of our attorneys work on contingency. Your money is safe in your pocket, as you won’t have to spend it on an attorney. You will only be charged once your case is settled in your favor and you receive your financial benefits. If your case is lost, you won’t be charged anything. Sounds tempting? It is because it is, as you have nothing to lose and everything to win by hiring an attorney. Think about it, and do the right thing.
Different Types of Cumulative Trauma Injuries
Cumulative trauma injuries appear every day, and are a result of a long exhaustion. These are the hardest types of injuries to prove, but if you have enough evidence to prove that you received an injury as a result of your work and stress from work, you will receive financial compensation.
Doing certain actions every day, such as typing on your keyboard, being exposed to the loud noise or bright light may lead to certain injuries which are more severe than you think, and which will change the rest of your life. These injuries will leave you without the ability to work, and you won’t be able to perform the regular work duties you are used to. No work means no income.
