Not all work injuries result from significant falls, toxic exposure and other dramatic accidents. In fact, most work-related injuries result simply from performing the same tasks repeatedly with improper form or without the assistance of certain injury prevention aids. Workers in offices, factories, stores and various other locations suffer repetitive stress injury at startling rates. One of the most common repetitive stress injuries suffered by Americans everywhere is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).
When you are injured on the job or become debilitated by occupational illness, you will likely become eligible for a beneficial form of financial assistance until you can get back on your feet. However, the workers’ compensation benefits you may become eligible for come with certain conditions. For example, if you insist that you cannot walk because of your condition and then someone discovers you walking down the street, you could be accused of workers’ compensation fraud.
