Boston Tendonitis Lawyers

While any job can pose the risk of causing repetitive motion injuries, construction site jobs create an even higher risk for workers. One of the most painful of these repetitive motion injuries is tendonitis, a medical condition that causes painful inflammation of a tendon. When a tendon is moved in an unnatural way over a period of time, the inflammation can become severe and lead to tendonitis. Individuals who develop this condition while on the job can be left to deal with extensive medical bills and time away from work. In many cases, tendonitis can render an individual unable to do the job they may have performed for years.

At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our Boston legal team understands how devastating tendonitis injuries can be to an individual and is dedicated to helping victims receive the financial restitution they need to treat their injuries. While it may seem daunting to take on a large corporation, our attorneys have the experience and resources necessary to build an aggressive case for our clients.

Common Areas Affected by Tendonitis

While tendonitis can develop in any tendon throughout the body, there are a few areas where tendonitis is more likely to be found. The areas most affected by tendonitis include:

  • Elbows
  • Knees
  • Ankles
  • Shoulders
  • Wrists
  • Forearms
  • Feet
  • Hands/Thumbs

Since tendonitis can often be overlooked as a tired muscle, it is important for individuals who work on construction sites to be aware of the symptoms in order to prevent further injury. Some common signs of tendonitis include:

  • Pain or burning when the affected area or tendon is touched or used
  • Constant burning sensation in affected area
  • Swollen, red, or warm areas
  • Restricted motion

While tendonitis can occur naturally in some individuals, construction workers who develop this condition due to repetitive motion can often receive compensation for their suffering. However, some employers, who even have workers compensation programs set up for instances like these, often try to underpay these employees and give them the bare minimum amount for their injuries. At Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, our Boston attorneys are committed to fighting for the rights of victims who may have been wrongfully treated by their employers after suffering from tendonitis. However, in these cases, taking legal action as soon as possible is vital in ensuring you receive your benefits in a timely manner. With that said, don’t hesitate—call the lawyers at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP today.
