Attorney Ross J. Peters is knowledgeable about repetitive stress injuries and can help you get the compensation you need. In Illinois, The Workers’ Compensation Act has provisions for employees with job-related injuries. The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA) governs employee claims for federal workers.

You should be able to work without stress or strain. Involve Mr. Peters immediately, as you may be entitled to benefits that will help you treat the illness. To achieve successful results for carpal tunnel syndrome claims, there are several points to remember:
- Report your injury immediately – It is extremely important to report your injury when it occurs or when you first notice signs that you may be injured.
- Seek a medical professional – Get the proper treatment. Do not wait or try to administer a self-directed remedy. A medical professional can examine you and give you a proper diagnosis.
- Keep detailed notes – Be thorough and be clear. Details matter. Inconsistency hurts your claim. Take the time to write down the circumstances surrounding your injury, who you reported the injury to and when you made the report.
- Hire an attorney – This point cannot be stressed enough. Workers’ compensation laws are lengthy and complex. There are even additional provisions depending on your line of work.
