Types of Injuries to Federal Workers
These are some examples of injuries that federal workers’ compensation can cover. Our experienced team of federal workers’ lawyers will discuss your case in detail with you.
Neck Injuries – Neck injuries can linger, and if not properly treated, can lead to extensive surgery.
Back Injuries – Back injuries can include anything from the spine, vertebrae, discs, or muscles and can be debilitating, making even a simple movement like sitting down unmanageable.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Epicondylitis – Injuries like these can be brought on by repetitive tasks such as typing. They can severely limit an employee’s production.
Shoulder Injuries – From lifting objects to carrying a briefcase or laptop bag, shoulders undergo a great deal of strain from repetitive use.
Brain or Head Injuries – Injuries to the brain or head may not show right away and can worsen over time. These types of injuries can cause long-lasting physical and mental effects.
Lower Extremity Injuries – Injuries to the lower extremities for federal employees can make it hard to get around and perform their duties.
Repetitive Motion Injuries – Carpal Tunnel isn’t the only kind of repetitive motion injury federal workers can suffer. Injuries such as chronic back pain and tendonitis can also limit one’s ability to work.
Preexisting Injuries – An injury to an employee does not have to be a new one to be eligible for federal workers’ compensation benefits. If you aggravated an old injury while at work, our federal worker compensation firm can help.
Nerve Injuries – We have experience representing clients who have suffered nervous disorder conditions, which can be hard to diagnose.
Psychological Injuries – Mental health is equally as important as physical health. Federal workers’ compensation laws cover psychological injuries such as PTSD.
