Repetitive Trauma Injuries

South Carolina Workers' Compensation Defense Attorneys

Repetitive trauma is defined as injuries that are "gradual in onset and caused by the cumulative effects of repetitive traumatic events." An employee must prove by a preponderance of the evidence that there is a "causal connection between the repetitive activities that occurred while the employee was engaged in the regular duties of his employment and the injury." Such claims must be filed within two years after the employee knew or should have known that his or her injury was compensable, but no more than seven years after the last date of injurious exposure. At Trask & Howell, L.L.C., our workers' compensation defense attorneys have extensive experience in claims involving carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back injuries, and other repetitive stress ailments. We want the best results for our clients at the lowest cost. When claims are contested, we work with our clients to defend our clients' positions and limit their exposure.
