Injuries Many People Overlook

Posted on: April 9th, 2013 by admin

It is difficult to overlook sudden injuries, such as a broken arm or a deep cut, but many work-related injuries develop more slowly and creep up so gradually that many people fail to recognize them as work related conditions. Workers’ compensation isn’t just for the more obvious injuries though; it also covers less dramatic but equally vexing injuries and illnesses.

Conditions that are often overlooked include, but are not limited to

  • asthma
  • trouble breathing
  • carpel tunnel syndrome
  • back pain
  • high blood pressure
  • heart disease
  • emphysema

Whether you know what you have or you are simply experiencing reoccurring symptoms that you think may have arisen due to activities at work, visit your doctor and notify them that you think the condition may be related to work. Once you have a diagnosis, hire a Los Angeles workers’ compensation lawyer for further consultation on your condition or injury. Your lawyer can help determine if you should file a claim or not and advise you as to what your next step should be.
