Repetitive Trauma Claims


Repetitive Trauma Claims are compensable claims under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act where a worker’s condition of ill-being develops over time rather than at a specific moment. Probably the most common example of a repetitive trauma claim is a carpal tunnel situation, which almost always develops from repeated use over time. Common Workers’ Compensation carpal tunnel claimants include secretaries who type or do a lot of computer work and people who use a vibrating instrument including but not limited to drills or air hammers. Even smaller vibrating instruments can cause carpal tunnel if the exposure is over a period of time. Likewise, people who have hand intensive occupations, such as mechanics, often develop carpal tunnel from using a lot of hand tools and/or cubital tunnel affecting their elbows. Repetitive trauma claims can be much more difficult to prove than a claim arising from a single incident.
