Repetitive motion work injuries are commonly claimed within the California Workers’ Compensation system, and our attorneys take pride in helping these long-suffering individuals seek recovery options that will allow them to successfully treat their injuries without paying out of pocket.
What Is a Repetitive Motion Work Injury?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration states that repetitive motion work injuries are the most common occupational health problems in the United States. These injuries are sustained over time by workers who repeat the same movements several times a day for an extended period. For some, these injuries may take years to conclusively tie to employment.
Examples of repetitive motion work injuries can include:
- Hearing loss and/or vision loss
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Neck pain
Employees who suffer from repetitive motion work injuries may discount their painful symptoms as typical wear and tear on the body that is related to age, exhaustion or simply having a rough day. This is especially true when the job itself may not be physically challenging, difficult, or harmful. However, when movements are repeated for months or even years, the injuries can become significant and require medical treatment and time off work.
At Joe, Southard & Yeoh LLP, we can help you turn your repetitive motion work injuries into a workers’ compensation claim in Los Angeles, CA and get the help you need to heal.
Are Repetitive Motion Work Injuries Covered by Workers’ Compensation in Los Angeles?
Yes. Workers who suffer from repetitive motion work injuries can experience serious, life altering pain that worsens over time. What one may consider a sore back can be the result of bending over repeatedly at work over time.
Our veteran workers’ compensation attorneys can file a claim on an employee’s behalf even if it has taken a considerable amount of time to connect the injury to work. If an employee’s injury has gone unreported to date, that does not mean that it isn’t a valid claim. We will handle the details of your case with precision and provide the legal guidance you need to take your first step in healing.
At Joe, Southard & Yeoh LLP, our attorneys focus on workers’ compensation law, and we do so attentively and successfully for each client we represent. We can do the same for you.
When Should Employees Make a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
If an employee believes he or she is suffering from a repetitive motion work injury, there will be signs that it is time to do something about the pain and discomfort. The moment an employee experiences measurable job-related pain, no matter how insignificant he or she believes it might be, it is time to seek medical care to understand what it will take to become physically whole again.
In addition to pain and discomfort, these signs can include:
- Loss of flexibility
- Loss of strength
- Loss of motion
- Tingling or numbness
- Discomfort in a concentrated area of movement
- Increased difficulty in performing customary work tasks and duties

Our attorneys work diligently to help you obtain all the benefits you are entitled to, which allows you to successfully begin the healing process without delay and added stress of having to navigate the workers’ compensation system alone.
