Do You Feel Your Boss Won't Believe You?

From Cynthia in Waukee...

"I don't know if this is a silly question or not. I work in an office...and every day when I go home, my back really seems to hurt a lot...and my wrist feels really sore. At first I thought it was just in my head, but it seems to be getting worse week by week. I don't want to complain to my boss. First off, I don't think he'd care, but second, I don't think he'd believe me. I'm not kidding though, it hurts".

Cynthia, what you're experiencing is a called a repetitive trauma injury...and they're absolutely real. 

Cumulative or repetitive trauma injuries develop over time, and their origin may not be immediately recognizable or provable.

Manufacturing, service industry, trucking, health care and office workers can all suffer from repetitive stress or trauma injuries caused by some function in the workplace. Many people do not notice their injury until years after leaving the job that caused the injury. Regardless of the time that has passed, you still have options with a devoted and experienced workers' compensation lawyer.

Eric, Randy, and Sarah work tirelessly on behalf of our clients and guide them through the claims process in relation to:

  • Knee injuries: torn ACL or MCL tendon, dislocated joint
  • Back injuries: herniated disk, bulging disk, lumbar strain, other muscle and tendon strains
  • Shoulder and elbow injuries: torn rotator cuff, torn bicep, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, joint instability or muscle impingement
  • Hand and wrist injuries: carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, hand-arm vibration syndrome

Naturally, employers and their insurance companies deny claims for repetitive stress injuries regularly. Such claims are difficult to prove, and they think that denying your claim will quiet you.

If this sounds familiar to you, let us fight for you to receive the compensation you rightfull deserve. Call Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485.
