What is a Repetitive Motion Injury?

The most common type of repetitive motion or repetitive stress injury is carpal tunnel syndrome. The ailments are most often suffered by people whose jobs require them to make the same motion over and over again. Employees who use computers, work in assembly lines, or use construction tools all day, can suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, which is felt in the wrist and hand.

The condition affects the median nerve of the wrist, causing pain, numbness, and weakness. Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause permanent nerve and muscle damage if it is left untreated. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common repetitive motion injury.

Who is Most at Risk for Repetitive Stress Injury?

If your job requires you to perform the same motion repeatedly throughout the day, such as typing or sewing, you may begin to experience numbness or tingling or severe pain in your hands, wrists, fingers and arms. The pain can shoot up into your shoulder, down your back. Stress injuries can be incredibly debilitating, preventing you from performing your daily work routine and seriously impacting your quality of life.

People who work in certain jobs are particularly susceptible to repetitive stress injuries, including:

  • Computer workers
  • Assembly line workers
  • Construction Workers
  • Welders
  • Manufacturing employees
  • Tailors
  • Meatpackers
  • Chicken pluckers

Many Other Injuries Can Sideline Workers, As Well

In addition to carpal tunnel syndrome, there are many other repetitive stress injuries that can occur at work and would qualify you for workers’ compensation benefits. These injuries include:

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • De Quervain’s syndrome
  • Ulnar nerve entrapment
  • Epicondylitis

My hero, my attorney who is always there for me!

Tom Shebell has represented me and my family members in several cases. Tom is the most prepared lawyer I have ever seen, and demands respect in and outside of the court room. His staff is amazing and never makes you feel as if you are bothering them. I always feel that I am his most important client, and he always takes my call. If he is busy, I am reassured that he will get right back to me and he does. His knowledge of the law and research on your case is impecable, and will never give up until he gets the results that he feels are the best for you. Although he is the most professional attorney I have ever worked with, he refers you call him Tom (not Mr. Shebell), and I am most comfortable calling him Tommy. His cell phone is on his answering service, to comfort you and assuring you that you can reach him if necessary, no matter what. I will never retain another lawyer, unless it is a case that he cannot handle. That has never happened to me. Unfortunately, Tommy is handling a very emotional case for my family, and whenever we discuss it our meet together he is very comforting to us. For a family man, and extremely busy attorney to handle matters like this, it truly takes a special type of person, and extraordiinary human being. If anyone take my advise, Tom Shebell, III is the only attorney that should be called first, and believe me you will not make another call. As I said in my title, he is my true "hero"!

I am Grateful I was able to have Thomas Shebell for my Lawyer

Thomas Shebell and his staff were very good to work with. They were always professional, but also very down to earth and real. I always felt that my best interest was their main concern. I was always able to call with questions and concerns and was never made to wait or to feel like I was inconveniencing anyone. I always felt that they knew instantly who I was and what was going on with my case. In the end, Thomas was able to get the best possible settlement for me. I am very grateful to have been treated like my case truly mattered to them.

Ferocious Fighter

Tom Shebell and his firm came highly recommended by several reputable people in the community. I come from a family deeply rooted in law enforcement, so I greatly appreciate that Tom grew up with the law as well, hailing from a family of highly respected attorneys. He easily grasped the complexity of my case and eased my concerns, while ferociously fighting for me. One of the moments that stands out to me the most was when I voiced a concern over possible retaliation and he said, "they're going to have come through me first." I wholeheartedly believed him then and now. There is no one else I'd want in my corner than Tom Shebell.

A League Of His Own

Mere words cannot express my gratitude to Thomas F Shebell III. He took on a case, that other attorneys would shy away from and fought vehemently for my husband, myself and our daughter. His tenacity is only surpassed by his kindness and compassion for his clients well-being. I would recommend Mr. Shebell III to anyone who may need an attorney to guide them through a difficult time and see them through to a successful end. Many thanks again to him and his staff!!
