Tennessee workers do a lot for the companies that employ them, and many even put their health on the line. Indeed, an employee can get hurt at work even when the job duties are considered relatively safe. Sitting at a desk in front of a computer for hours on end takes its toll on the body, and it is not uncommon for so-called desk jockeys to develop neck and back problems in addition to carpel tunnel syndrome.
This is where a qualified workers' compensation attorney can help. At Logan-Thompson, we are devoted to the health and well-being of our clients. Over the years, we have represented numerous individuals in their workers' compensation claims, both to get them the money they need to pay for their medical care and to get them financial assistance to supplement income that is lost during the time frame they are unable to work due to injuries.
Scientific studies and medical research have shown how dangerous for the body it is to simply sit in front of a desk and type at a computer without getting up to stretch and move around. We encourage that all workers do whatever they can to stay active, stretch, move and take a break from their desks as much as possible during the day. Still, it is not always possible to prevent desk job related injuries no matter what one does in terms of preventative measures.
