Office workers face hidden dangers in the form of repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) involving typing and other everyday work activities. If your job entails typing for long periods of time, you may develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other serious conditions.
At the Law Offices of Dennis Kenny, P.C., we understand the impact a typing-related injury can have on your life. We will help you seek the relief you need to help you overcome the short-term and long-term consequences of your workplace injury.
Typing And Repetitive Stress-Type Injuries
In today's economy, more and more people are working in jobs that often require a lot of time on the keyboard. Common repetitive stress injuries suffered by people who type a lot include carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis. These conditions are characterized by tingling, numbness and — in some cases — swelling of the wrists and lower arms.
If you have suffered a typing injury and it is keeping you from performing your job duties, it is important to protect your legal rights. Our attorneys can advise you of your rights in terms of workers' compensation to help you cover your medical bills and up to two-thirds of your lost wages.
If your typing injury leaves you disabled, you may pursue additional compensation by filing for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. We can help you explore all of the legal options available to you, as you and your family seek the financial relief you need to compensate for your losses.
