We Capably Handle Challenging Workers’ Comp Claims

A work injury is often thought of as a workplace accident. Yet many work injuries are the result of repetitive motions or long periods of lifting or exposure to loud noises. Particularly if you went into the job with a pre-existing condition, the repeated stress placed on your joints, back and other vulnerable areas can result in an incapacitating injury.

Pre-Existing Conditions Are Often Made Worse Through Work

Common pre-existing conditions that may worsen on the job include:
