Repetitive Stress Injuries and Social Security Disability Claims

While federal and state laws require employers to provide safe workplaces with reasonable accommodations, not all employers follow the law, and even when they do, this often is not enough to prevent employees from sustaining repetitive stress injuries (RSI) over extended periods of time. If you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or any other type of RSI, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Our lawyers throughout California, Nevada and the West are here to help you understand your rights.

Can a Repetitive Stress Injury be a Disability?

A long-term repetitive stress injury can qualify as a “total” disability entitling you to file an SSD claim. In fact, the Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes several common workplace injuries as potentially debilitating. Our Oakland attorneys regularly represent office workers, assembly line workers, warehouse employees, construction workers, and other individuals suffering from conditions such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)
  • Tendonitis in the knee, elbow, or rotator cuff
  • Other overuse and repetitive strain injuries
If you are considering submitting an SSD claim based on you repetitive stress injury, it is important to keep in mind that the Social Security Administration only pays benefits to individuals who are suffering from a “total” disability. This means that your injury must (i) be anticipated to prevent you from working at your job for at least one year, and (ii) prevent you from seeking alternate employment that utilizes your education, training, and experience. In other words, if you can return to work following rest or physical therapy, or if changing to ergonomic furniture or devices will alleviate your injuries, you are not going to receive any money from the SSA.

Many people are unsure – understandably so – whether their condition entitles them to obtain SSD benefits. At David Allen & Associates, our lawyers have decades of experience helping injured individuals understand their situations and make informed decisions about whether to submit an SSD application. We also work closely with top medical experts who can assess your condition, prescribe treatment, and prepare appropriate records to support your SSD claim.

In short, whether you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome or any other repetitive stress injury, you can count on our lawyers in Oakland, Sacramento, and throughout the Western United States to provide complete, personalized, and compassionate legal representation to help you win the compensation you deserve.
