Cumulative Trauma Injuries & Illnesses

What Is Cumulative Trauma & How Can a Sacramento Lawyer Help?

While many believe that injuries which can qualify them for workers' compensation benefits only involve one-time incidents, this is simply not the case. The fact of the matter is that many people suffer from cumulative trauma injuries as well. These types of injuries occur when certain physical motions, lifting, work, or even exposure to harmful substances produce wear and tear on the body over time, eventually leading to an injury or illness.

At Smolich and Smolich, we are here to tell you that your cumulative injury or illness claim is just as valid as any other. For more than 40 years, our lawyers have been helping clients in the Sacramento area get the full and fair workers' compensation benefits that they are entitled to. We are ready to start work on your case as soon as possible when you contact our firm online.

Some examples of situations that can lead to cumulative trauma injury or illness include:

  • Repeated motions, especially those related to high production requirements, such as typing
  • Frequent lifting of heavy materials
  • Exposure to toxic or harmful substances over a period of time
  • Insufficient amount of rest time between tasks
  • Frequent bending, twisting, reaching, or other forms of awkward movements

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”
