Aside from back injuries, hand, wrist and arm injuries are the most common work-related injuries among U.S. workers. These injuries account for millions of dollars in workers' compensation claims each year. Many are the result of repetitive motions that cause nerve damage.
A wide variety of workers are afflicted with repetitive stress injuries, including clerical workers, heavy users of computer keyboards, construction workers, nursing home employees and assembly line workers.
Delaware workers who suffer repetitive trauma injuries on the job are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Because this type of injury accumulates over time rather than from a single, identifiable accident, one challenge for obtaining workers' compensation benefits is proving that a repetitive stress injury is work-related.
