When we think of work-related injuries, Repetitive Stress Injury isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind, but it is a workplace injury regardless. If left to develop and persist without treatment, RSI can have lasting effects like chronic pain, limited mobility, muscle loss, and the inability to perform your work duties. Florida law requires employers to purchase workers’ compensation insurance to cover work related injuries, including RSI.
If you think that you may be suffering from an RSI, it’s important to act immediately. First, report the injury and your symptoms to your employer, creating a paper trail. It’s also vital to have documentation of the injury, so you need to see a doctor for medical treatment as well. The longer you wait, the worse your injury can become, and it may be harder to file a claim.
Our experienced Work Injury Lawyers can help ensure you get fair treatment and receive the compensation that you deserve for your injury. Because RSIs develop over time, they can be tough to document and prove. However, with over 45 years of legal experience, our Florida Work Injury lawyers will fight for you and ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Are you suffering with an RSI from a work-related incident? If so, you may be entitled to compensation benefits from workers’ compensation insurance.
