One of the most common forms of repetitive stress injuries is carpal tunnel syndrome. This is often found in those working in administrative roles, such as secretaries or administrative assistants. Years of typing and working on a keyboard can cause chronic pain. Your employer is responsible for providing treatment and rehabilitation options, as well as options to allow you to continue to work.

Pulmonary issues are also very common in public works employees and construction workers. Breathing in chemicals and airborne substances for a significant period of time can trigger respiratory or circulatory issues.

It is not uncommon for police officers to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, as a result of traumatic and high-stress situations. If you are suffering from this condition, there are steps you can take to recover compensation that will pay for treatment and rehabilitation needed to return life to normal.
