Helping injured workers navigate the complex process of workers’ compensation claims

Helping You Build A Case For Your Cumulative Injury

Cumulative Injuries: What To Know

The medical field has a newfound understanding of just how damaging cumulative trauma can be. As recently as 15 years ago, medical professionals often dismissed cumulative injuries as insignificant. Now, many doctors as well as insurers and employers understand the life-altering consequences of cumulative injuries. As a result, most forms of cumulative trauma qualify for workers’ compensation benefits.

Cumulative injuries develop from a repetitive work activity or from gradual exposure to a hazardous environment. For example, hammering nails or typing at a keyboard can cause muscle strain over the course of several years. Long-term exposure to toxic fumes or loud noises can damage the lungs or eardrums. If you had a preexisting injury that your job duties exacerbated, you may still qualify for workers’ compensation.
