Workers Compensation Claims in Georgia Due to Overuse and Repetitive Work

An Overview of Workers' Compensation in Georgia

Work does not need to be strenuous to cause injury. The modern-day workplace often utilizes technology and machinery that requires a limited range of motion to operate.  As a result, many people spend their workday sitting at a computer desk, driving or pushing and pulling levers on machinery. 

Repetitive Tasks

Many jobs associated with conducting repetitive tasks for long periods of time can cause work-related injuries that need to be addressed.  Injuries due to overuse and repetitive motions are commonly found in the wrist, elbow, knee, shoulders, neck or back. 

Common Symptoms on Repetitive Tasks

Common symptoms of injuries due to overuse include pain, numbness, weakness, tingling and burning and may require surgery and time off of work to recover.

As an experienced workers compensation attorney located in Henry County, Georgia, my job is to help people navigate through the workers compensation process so they can get the medical attention and compensation they deserve.

Here’s what Georgia residents should do if they suspect injury due to overuse and repetitive work:

  • Carefully review your working conditions, and note what activities cause pain or soreness
  • Consult with your physician and explain your concerns.  Your doctor will probably conduct tests designed to assess any nerve damage that may have been caused by repetitive tasks.
  • Contact an experienced local workers compensation attorney who can advise of the validity of your claim.  Our firm offers free consultations with no obligation.  

For more information on worker's compensation, or for a free consultation regarding your workers compensation claim, contact attorney Casey Crumbley or call (770) 389-4864.
