There are two types of injuries which are compensable under the workers’ compensation system in California. The first type of injury is called a “specific injury” and is the result of a particular incident such as a slip and fall, auto accident, machine amputation, or forklift crash.
The second type of compensable injury is called a “continuous trauma” and is the result of injury from repetitive motion. Repetitive motion injuries include back injuries from constant heavy lifting. They can also include carpal tunnel from repetitive data entry or injury from repeated assembly line work.
