Question: My doctor told me my condition was caused by wear and tear from my work over the years. Is this still covered by workers' compensation?

You do not have to have a sudden, direct injury for it to qualify as a workers' compensation injury. Repetitive use syndromes, or "overuse" syndromes are also included in the Workers' Compensation Act, even if the injury develops over time. This is a very complex area, and again, quality advice is very important.
