Attorneys Representing Railroad Workers With Cumulative Trauma Injuries
In general, workers’ compensation claims are available for two types of injuries. A specific injury refers to an injury that occurred because of one accident, such as falling and breaking a bone or losing a limb in an accident.
For railroad workers, however, cumulative trauma injuries often cause the worst damage. A cumulative trauma injury (also known as a repetitive stress injury) occurs as a result of months or years of working in an unsafe environment. When workers are continually and repetitively exposed to negative working conditions, their bodies wear down. After time, continued toxic exposure, whole body vibration or loud noise can cause permanent injuries.
