NJ Repetitive Stress Injury Lawyers
Work injuries do not always occur from a specific traumatic event. Sometimes they develop over time from the wear and tear of the body due to routine repetitive motions. New Jersey workers’ compensation law recognizes repetitive stress injuries, but employers and insurers may deny these claims, and that’s when you need the Eder Law Firm to step in.
The Eder Law Firm in East Brunswick, NJ will fight to prove that your repetitive stress injury is work-related and that you are suffering from a permanent disability. We handle all workers’ compensation claims, representing employees in Union, Hudson, Mercer, Essex, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, Somerset, and other counties throughout New Jersey.

Repetitive Stress Injury Claims
A repetitive stress injury (also called “repetitive movement injury”) is an injury caused by repeated motions that degrade tendons, ligaments, muscles or nerves in the joints. It can be characterized by pain, swelling, weakness, numbness, tingling or twitching in that part of the body. We have helped clients secure benefits for:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (wrists)
- Torn Rotator Cuff or Labrum (shoulder)
- Knee and Elbow Injuries
- Back Injuries
Proving the Connection to Your Job
You should report any pain or symptoms to your employer at the earliest opportunity, even if you do not seek medical treatment right away. We can step in if an employer or its workers’ compensation insurance carrier rejects your claim or demands more proof, or you need medical treatment. It is important to note that any treatment for a work-related injury must be requested by you and be pre-authorized by your employer or the workers’ compensation insurance company through their medical providers at their sole cost; otherwise, beware, the payment for any unauthorized medical bill may come out of your pocket!
The Eder Law Firm has over 50 years of experience representing the injured, and has handled many repetitive stress cases. We will forcefully advocate for your temporary wage loss benefits, your right to see specialists, coverage of necessary surgery or accommodations when you return to work and the maximum permanent disability award allowable.
