Types of Wear and Tear Injuries that Tend to be Related to Work
There are several types of wear and tear injuries that tend to be related to repetitive work. In order to be compensable, you must demonstrate exactly when your injury was discovered. In addition, you must demonstrate that you suffered your injury while you were on the job and while you were acting within the scope of your employment.
Many types of wear and tear injuries are sustained while working at jobs that involve frequently using tools and computers. These injuries can also result from lifting, grabbing, reaching, and pulling items while on the job over a significant period of time.
Determining if a Wear and Tear Injury is Work-Related, as Opposed to Preexisting
A healthcare provider is oftentimes necessary to demonstrate that a particular wear and tear injury was sustained at work, as opposed to a pre-existing injury. In many instances, the employer’s insurance company will try and show that your injury did not result from your job duties and that consequently, it is not compensable through the state workers’ compensation system. Therefore, it is important that you have an experienced healthcare provider on your side who can assist you with proving the validity of your workers’ compensation claim for monetary benefits.
