Tennis Elbow Claims
Hurt at Work? Contact an Orange County Workers’ Comp Attorney
Tennis elbow is a type of stress-related injury in which a person suffers damage to the muscle and tendon area of the elbow from repetitive use of the forearm and hands.
While this condition commonly occurs in tennis players, tennis elbow can also develop in people who are forced to continuously make arm movements through the course of their work, resulting in chronic pain and requiring expensive corrective surgeries. If you believe you have developed tennis elbow due to your job, you may be entitled to recover monetary benefits by filing a workers’ compensation claim with the help of a knowledgeable Orange County workers’ compensation lawyer from Alvandi Law Group, P.C.

Symptoms of Tennis Elbow
Tennis elbow occurs in approximately three percent of the population and is most common in men between the ages of 30 and 50. Professions that require the constant use of the arms such as auto mechanics, painters, and plasterers are particularly susceptible to developing this condition.
In many cases, these symptoms can be so severe that they prevent a person from being able to perform their daily duties, forcing them to take lengthy leaves of absence to seek treatment and recovery.
- The symptoms can all be indicators of tennis elbow:
- Slowly emerging or sudden pain on the outside of the elbow
- Pain shaking hands or squeezing objects with normal pressure
- Pain lifting objects, using tools, or performing simple tasks
Treatment usually includes physical therapy, cortisone injections, and the use of an elbow brace to rest the tendons. Surgery may be required in particularly serious cases where extensive damage to the area has occurred.
What Compensation Can I Recover?
If you suffer from tennis elbow as a result of your occupation, can file a claim with their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance in pursuit of reimbursement for their medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and possible permanent disability benefits.
