Many times the answer is yes.
You do not have to have a specific accident date to have a workers’ compensation claim in Florida. Many of the work place injuries that I handle are suffered by workers who do not trip, fall, get hit or suffer a sudden blunt force trauma.
Many of my clients suffer from a repetitive trauma injury. Repetitive trauma injuries occur over a period of time and are typically suffered by workers who perform an activity numerous times in the course of their employment. Think of an assembly line worker who does nothing but little finite movements like twisting knobs or turning screws. Think of a dental hygienist who has to twist their wrists up and down and back and forth, hundreds of times a day, thousands of times a year and millions of times through their career. Think of a construction worker whose only job is to use a jackhammer, blasting into concrete all day, every day. Sometimes even sitting in a poor position or holding you head to listen to the phone can cause a repetitive trauma injury.
You don’t have to fall down the stairs or break your arm to have a work comp injury. The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at the Law Offices of Franks and Koenig have represented many employees who suffered repetitive trauma injuries and are ready and waiting to help you secure the benefits you may be entitled to under the law.
