It would be great if everyone had jobs that kept them interested, where every day involved something different. Yet the reality is that many jobs are rather dull. You end up doing the same thing day after day.
While your brain might suffer from the lack of stimulation, your body could suffer from the constant repetition of specific actions. While you can solve the brain situation by changing jobs, the physical injuries you pick up might stay with you for life.
You are not meant to do the same thing all day long
Humans did not evolve to spend all day sitting at a computer typing, standing at a checkout swiping items or bending over a workbench kneading pizza dough. Those are just three of the many ways modern people earn money that require a lot of repetition of the same few movements.
Even jobs that you might consider more exciting and varied, such as being a professional tennis player, fighting fires or nursing people, can involve considerable repetition that puts you at risk of repetitive strain injuries.
You do not need an accident to claim compensation
You might think that workers’ compensation only covers injuries resulting from an accident. Yet, it can also cover illness resulting from long-term exposure to certain workplace factors or substances and repetitive strain injuries that happen over time.
Claiming workers’ compensation can be challenging because insurers prefer not to pay out the full amount they should in order to maximize profits. Getting legal help to file your claim increases the chance you receive the total amount due.
