While many workers’ compensation injuries are the result of serious accidents, other injuries build up over time and are caused by repetitive stress. This is true of factory workers who may perform the same tasks day after day, and it’s also true for office personnel and other employees who spend their days doing things that take a toll on their wrists, arms, fingers, legs and other parts of the body.
The attorneys at Galanti, Patti, & Winterscheidt, P.C., truly believe that injuries related to stress and trauma are no less important than injuries caused in accidents and deserve the same level of medical care and attention. Contact our office to learn more information about workers’ compensation benefits for repetitive trauma injuries.
Understanding Common Occurrences

Use of a computer keyboard
Vibrating hand tools
