Workplace injuries don't always occur suddenly or traumatically. Injuries can happen gradually, often with little notice paid by the worker in the months or years leading up to the realization that something is wrong.
Still, the impact of these types of injuries is often no less debilitating, as the recent case of Evans v. Fidelity & Guar. Ins. Co. reveals.
Workers' compensation attorneys in Concord recognize that in order to secure benefits for clients in these situations, it often takes more time and work on behalf of the claimant. It's critical to establish that the origin of the injury - or its worsening condition - is the result of work duties.
