Some work injuries can be traced to a specific event such as a broken arm caused by a fall from a ladder. Other “cumulative” injuries occur over time, such as back trouble caused by repetitive lifting or an occupational disease from repeated exposure to dangerous chemicals on the job. Both types of injuries can qualify an employee for workers’ compensation benefits. Cumulative injuries, however, present a number of complex legal issues that can make it challenging to obtain maximum workers’ compensation benefits.
