Not every workplace accident happens in a single moment, like in a car accident or in a fall from scaffolding. Some happen over time because of repetitive motions people use at work.

Factory workers may consistently be reaching in the same direction hundreds, if not thousands, of times a day. Truck drivers may be lifting freight regularly, causing worn ligaments or tendons. Even office workers with relatively sedentary jobs can develop carpal tunnel syndrome or vision problems because of work on a computer.

Even if your injury happened over a long time, you may be able to recover workers' compensation to help you address the financial consequences of that injury. Connecting your injury to your activities at work, however, can be particularly challenging. Make sure you have an experienced lawyer who will fight aggressively on your behalf.
