Repetitive Use Injuries
Repetitive Use Injury Lawyers Of Duval, Clay, St. Johns, Flagler, And Nassau Counties
The personal injury lawyers of the Jacksonville, FL Law Office of Craig Gibbs represent individuals who have suffered from repetitive use injuries occurring in the workplace. Unlike accidents that cause sudden, unexpected damage, such as a slip and fall or a car crash, repetitive use injuries occur over time—often due to some deficiency at a workstation. Activities such as improperly typing on a keyboard or using a computer mouse, or constantly bending over to access a cash register or filing drawer can lead to muscular skeletal disorders that affect the muscles, spine, bones, tendons, and ligaments. With thirty-three years of personal injury experience in North Florida, our attorneys have the legal experience necessary for this new and growing field of civil litigation.

Repetitive Use Injury and MSD Cases in Florida
Unfortunately, most employers in areas like Jacksonville and St. Augustine do not go to the time and expense to hire ergonomists and office design experts to try to reduce chronic injuries that are created over time. Even when employees mention a sore back, wrist pain, or a stiff neck, office managers are quick to dismiss the complaints because they were not caused by an accident or single harmful event. That does not, however, mean that these common injuries were not caused by work conditions. Nor does it mean that they aren’t covered under workers compensation insurance. The personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Craig Gibbs are familiar with the signs of repetitive use injuries, and can recommend expert doctors who can diagnose repetitive motion injuries. Once your injury is diagnosed, while you begin your medical recovery, our personal injury lawyers will go to work at making a claim with your employer’s workers compensation insurer.
