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.

injury or illness claim is just as valid as any other. For more than 40
