Oakland Cumulative Injury Lawyers
Some work injuries can be traced to a specific event such as a broken arm caused by a fall from a ladder. Other injuries (referred to as cumulative injuries) occur over time, such as back trouble caused by repetitive lifting or occupational disease from repeated exposure to dangerous chemicals on the job. Both type of injuries can qualify an employee for workers' compensation benefits. Cumulative injuries however, present a number of complex legal issues when it comes to obtaining maximum workers' compensation benefits.
