Steps To Take If You Are Suffering From Cumulative Trauma Disorder
Cumulative trauma disorder (CTD) is a condition that affects tendons, nerve tissue and muscles because of frequent and continuous use over an extended amount of time. CTD can also result from improper work habits or poor safety regulations.
If you believe you are suffering from CTD because of your work conditions, you might have grounds for compensation for your suffering. At Baehman Law, we can review your work injury and determine your best course of action.
Common Signs Of CTD
CTD comes in many forms and can result from many actions. It occurs most often on high-activity work sites. Common physical actions such as lifting, repetitive strain or frequent bending can cause CTD. Even constant typing on a keyboard can cause issues with CTD. These activities can result in serious traumas, including:
- Neck injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Back injuries
- Raynaud’s disease
These types of injuries can mean you deserve compensation for your lost wages and medical bills. If your injury claim has been denied, you have options. We fight to get you the best possible outcome.
Do Not Put Your Future At Risk
You may think you can manage your condition and keep working. What you have today can get much worse. When an insurance company offers you a settlement for your injuries, they might not be offering you everything you deserve. We know how to negotiate with big companies to ensure that they are compensating you for your current condition and for what you will need in years to come.
