Legal Help For Injured Workers From All Industries
The activities you perform on a daily basis at work such as keyboard and mouse use or working with tools can lead to serious, debilitating injuries to your hands, wrists, shoulders, elbows and knees. If you have suffered carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis or another repetitive use injury in the workplace, Connell & Foresta will help you pursue a workers’ compensation claim.

Our experienced lawyer will guide you through the process of filing your claim and support you if it is denied or your benefits are terminated. Representing clients in a range of worker-related injury claims, attorney Michael Foresta has more than 20 years of legal experience. From our North Andover office, our entire team will work to help you obtain the benefits and compensation you need.
Pursuing Compensation For Injured Workers
Many people mistakenly believe that in order to file a workers’ compensation claim, an injury must be sudden and traumatic. However, you can also file a claim if your injury developed over time due to repetitive use of your hands, arms, shoulders or legs. Some examples of repetitive use injuries include:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Tennis elbow
These types of injuries can make it hard to perform tasks, and result in excruciating pain and the need for costly surgical procedures and extensive physical therapy. Our lawyers are committed to helping you get the compensation you need to heal from your injuries. We will help you understand your rights regarding the workers’ compensation system and handle any denials or terminations that arise. Additionally, if a third party was responsible for your injuries, we will pursue compensation from all available sources.
