Does Idaho Workers’ Comp Cover Overuse Syndrome Injuries?
http://www.MortonLawyers.com If you are constantly lifting, loading, or repeating the same movements at work, you may suffer from pain and soreness. If you have been diagnosed with overuse syndrome, you probably want to know if you can receive workers’ compensation benefits for your injuries.
In Idaho, the workers’ compensation laws do not recognize overuse syndrome. This means that even if a worker knows that he overused his muscles at work, workers’ compensation benefits are not available in this type of incident. The law only recognizes industrial accidents or the onset of an occupational disease. If the worker had been injured in an isolated incident, the results may have been different and he may have received workers’ compensation benefits for his work-related injury.
