What is a Repetitive Stress Injury?

Workers’ compensation claims are usually filed after a violent accident causes a worker to suffer a serious injury. Yet this is not the only scenario after which workers’ comp benefits become necessary. Repetitive stress injuries (RSI) can also warrant workers’ compensation benefits as time goes by and the injury gradually worsens.

A repetitive stress injury is the result of gradual damage to muscles, joints, tendons, and nerves caused by repeating the same motion again and again across an extended period. For example, carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common RSIs, which is usually caused by long hours of typing on a keyboard for months or years. Although typing on a keyboard for a day is not likely to be harmful, the continued repetition of that simple and small motion can be.

Does Workers’ Comp Cover Repetitive Stress Injuries?

Repetitive stress injuries are tricky when it comes to workers’ compensation claims because they are covered but getting that coverage is not necessarily easy. Insurance companies like to try to avoid paying workers’ comp benefits by saying that the worker’s injury was suffered outside of work or is unrelated to job duties. Because an RSI forms gradually, it is easier for an insurer to point at other activities as the source of the injury. For example, an insurance company might argue that an office worker’s carpal tunnel syndrome has not been caused by years at a keyboard but instead by the worker’s baking habits, which requires him to roll, stretch, and knead dough by using his wrists and forearms.

Evidence that can help prove the source of an RSI could be:

  • Medical notes from your doctor throughout the years
  • Testimonies from other workers suffering from the same RSI
  • Employer’s failure to address your RSI, such as failing to provide ergonomic equipment
