Can I collect Workers Compensation for a condition that resulted from repetitive use or overuse?

0

Yes, most states allow for such type of recovery. Carpal tunnel syndrome and tennis elbow are some of the more common examples of a repetitive use or overuse injury. Knee, leg and hip injuries resulting from repetitive use or overuse may also be payable under Workers Compensation. Back injuries as well may be covered. There are also some diseases that are associated with repetitive use of the legs and feet that can be found compensable occupational illnesses. As true with other aspects of Workers Compensation law, the coverage rules vary greatly from state to state and a careful study must be made to determine which state laws provide the best benefits for any particular case.
