Repetitive Stress Injuries and Degenerative Injuries
In order to stay healthy, our bodies need a certain amount of movement each day. However, like a machine part that wears down over time, our bones and nerves suffer when they must do the same things every day. Almost any type of activity can lead to an injury. Secretaries who type all day may suffer from carpel tunnel syndrome, while people who operate presses or other machinery may suffer from epicondylitis or ulnar nerve entrapment.
In Illinois, you may be able to receive compensation for a repetitive stress injury if the doctor says your job caused the injury or if it could have been a factor in your injury. If you think that sounds like your situation, it is important to contact experienced Chicago repetitive work injury attorneys who can protect your rights throughout the process.

Compensation for Degenerative Injuries
As we get older, our bodies age and deteriorate. Joints and bones that are routinely under pressure may degenerate. Although that is a natural part of the body, if you are in a profession that regularly puts pressure on certain body parts, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
For example, a tradesman who regularly crouches or crawls to perform his or her work may suffer injuries to his knees. Working with an experienced lawyer may enable him or her to pin the injury on the employer. We work with individuals to help them receive compensation for degenerative injuries, including:
- Herniated discs
- Bulging discs
- Knee injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Rotator cuff tears
- Back injuries
