May I receive benefits if I suffer an injury from repetitive job activities?

Yes. It is generally accepted that repetitive motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, and other conditions are either caused, aggravated, or accelerated by repetitive job activities, and thus are compensable work injuries. However, employers generally do not accept these claims without litigation. In the litigation, the burden of proof will be on you, the injured worker, to prove through medical testimony that your problems originated from your repetitive job activities.
