Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSI) like carpal tunnel are becoming increasingly common as more workers are chained to desks performing their job over a keyboard and mouse – although many types of repetitive jobs lead to the same injury, such as cashiers, assembly line workers, butchers, beauticians, healthcare workers, janitors, carpenters, long-haul truck drivers, landscapers, or any profession that requires frequent pushing, slicing, or pressing objects without sufficient breaks. Overuse of your hands can cause many problems and may eventually result in so much pain that you are unable to work or complete your daily tasks at home. Some of the most common repetitive motion injuries we see are Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Cubital Tunnel Syndrome, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), and Complex Residual Pain Syndrome (CRPS).
While most people think of workplace injuries as involving the consequences of a sudden mishap such as a motor vehicle collision, fall from a scaffolding, or malfunction of heavy equipment, many job-related injuries are not so immediate and clear. When an injured worker suffers an injury caused by a specific incident at work, on a specific date, the cause of injury is usually obvious. However, injuries that occur over a protracted period of time pose a more significant challenge when pursuing a workers’ compensation claim. While pursuing a workers’ compensation claim for injured workers that have sustained a repetitive stress injury might seem straightforward, there are many procedural, evidentiary, and substantive complications that can disrupt, compromise, or completely derail a claim. Do not worry, Bruce Edwards has over 31 years of experience handling these types of claims. Bruce has successfully represented many injured employees who have suffered RSIs. Bruce has been representing those who suffer serious injuries throughout Georgia for over thirty-one years.

Remember, it is a mistake to hire a far-away attorney who does not know, and is not familiar with the most important aspect of your case: who is your doctor? For 31 years, Bruce has worked with (and against, if necessary) virtually every orthopedic and neurosurgeon practicing from Macon to Valdosta, from Brunswick to Columbus. So you should not hire an attorney who is located far away, where they could not possibly have a relationship with your doctor. If you were hurt in South Georgia, you should retain a South Georgia attorney.
