Re: [Histonet] Repetitive motion Syndrome in particular use of shoulders.


My Dad was an expert in the field of personal injury, particulary 
workman's compensation. Sounds like your workplace is jerking you around. 
I know nothing about how the laws work down under, but if you were here, 
you should immediately contact a reputable personal injury attorney, (aka 
ambulance chaser), who specializes in these kinds of cases.  Any good 
attorney will take your case for no money up front, but will charge you 
about 30% of whatever monies you recover.  You were hurt at work, you 
cannot perform your work due to your injury - their fault, their 
liability.    Not all lawyers are evil-doers.  Good luck.

I sustained an injury to my left shoulder while at
work in the lab when I fell off a defective stool and
landed on the floor hitting my shoulder. The insurance
company is refusing to pay for my treatment as their
Occupational Specialist has stated that histology work
is not repetitive and in particular the shoulder is
not affected.They have requested that I provide
information to the contrary if I wish to have my case
reviewed.We were using an older model Microm where the
left handle came 4/5ths of the way to the top of the
microtome which required my arm to be in a slightly
raised position causing me considerable discomfort.The
lab is a research lab at a medical school and all our
staining and coverslipping were done manually in a
large fume hood that had a lowered glass door.
I am hoping that some-one knows or has on file any
documented information that they can send to me
relating to RMS in particular mentioning the shoulder
that I can present it to the insurer.
Thanks !
