Workers’ compensation and long-term illnesses

Your injury does not have to be caused by an accident to be covered by workers’ compensation. As an employee, you can receive compensation for repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome and back pain, that are caused by misuse over a long period of time. A worker who has sustained a documented repetitive motion injury is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits according to the benefit schedules in his or her state’s workers’ compensation statutes. You may also be rewarded for some illnesses and diseases that are the gradual result of work circumstances, as well as heart conditions, lung disease and stress-related digestive problems.
