WORKERS’ COMPENSATION INJURIES ARE NOT NECESSARILY ONE SPECIFIC EVENT, AND CAN GO UNNOTICED!
It is often the case that employees are unaware they are even injured and thus eligible for a workers’ compensation claim. Injuries stemming from some repetitive stress are known as cumulative trauma and can be every bit as debilitating as injuries resulting from an accident at work. If you have only recently become aware of your symptoms caused by your job, you need to speak with an Anaheim workers’ compensation lawyer from the Law Offices of Robert Willyard as soon as you can to begin working on your case.
Attorney Robert Willyard is exceptionally qualified to handle your injury claim: he is a Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation Law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, formerly one of nine Commissioners of the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Commission to the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization. We are so confident in our ability to recover the compensation you need that we will not accept payment until we do so.
WHAT QUALIFIES AS CUMULATIVE TRAUMA?
There are many different situations which apply to cumulative trauma statutes:
Tired or cramping hands from repetitive computer use
Decreasing gripping strength from years of filing documents each day
Back pain from routine heavy lifting
Back pain from prolonged periods of driving a truck
Difficulty breathing from toxic chemical exposure
Depression or anxiety sustained from years of pressure-filled work days
Difficulty sleeping or maintaining a normal eating schedule from working at night
Worsening prior conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes from work stress
These are only a few of injuries which are legally referred to in California as “cumulative trauma” injuries. If, due to the repetitive nature of your job duties, little by little—and even though you can still do your job—you develop symptoms such as pain, an increase in pre-existing symptoms, an increase in pre-existing pain, or simply become weaker, frustrated or tired, there’s a good chance you have a “cumulative trauma” injury that needs to be addressed.

At Willyard Law, clients are our priority. Listen to what some of our former clients are saying about the positive experience they had working with us.
After I fractured my arm working on a construction site I didn’t know what to do next. I happened to find out about Willyard Law through a co-worker so I gave them a call. He stood beside me the whole time and I got a great settlement; much more than I thought I would. Call him!
I was badly burned in a factory accident and I had no idea what to do. I’m glad my wife called Robert Willyard. He was so supportive and his whole staff treated me like family. Can’t recommend him enough!
Can’t say enough good things about Willyard Law! I fell while on the job and they move fast to pay my medical bills. I wouldn’t think twice about calling them in the future!
