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

  • I am so happy to have such knowledgeable and helpful people to help during this difficult time. Sam was super responsive and always willing to answer questions, regardless how big or small.

    “My circumstances were a bit unusual - my husband applied for Social Security Disability, but unfortunately passed away during the review process. Sam and Sarah worked diligently to see the case through to the end, and provide our family the benefits we were owed. A special thank you to Sam, he was always very responsive, willing to go above and beyond, and willing to answer questions whether big or small. Thank you, Smolich and Smolich!”

    Smolich and Smolich is so helpful!

  • Thank you Sarah and team!

    “I needed to apply for disability and knew nothing about how to go about it. Sarah called me and explained the process and assured me everything would be okay. Her staff went online to fill out my application. She and Marlena kept me updated every step of the way. Within a short time a decision was made in my favor. I cannot tell you how many sleepless nights I had prior to meeting with the team. I would recommend them to anyone who needs help in this area. Thank you so much for all your hard work. Without you I could have never done this.”


  • 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!”

  • very empathic

    “I would totally still be lost in the red tape of the social security system without the help of my attorney Sarah Greer and my case manager Sarah Cummings. You ladies rock!! Thank you so much for all your help getting my award. I would personally recommend this law firm to anyone needing help with their claim.”

  • 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!!!!”
