See Why "Barista Elbow" Is The New "Tennis Elbow"
Posted Scott B. Cooper on May 05, 2014 in Workers' Compensation
As reported in the May 4, 2014 edition of the New York Post, Alex Bernson, a barista advocate who writes for the site Sprudge, did a survey of 475 city baristas last year, and found that 47% of them suffered repetitive stress injuries they attributed to their jobs; 20% had heart palpitations or chest pains; and 62% thought their job/intake of coffee had caused emotional problems and depression. If you have developed "barista elbow" or "barista wrist" you may be entitled to a Pennsylvania workers compensation claim.
These types of injuries are very common among workers' compensation claims in Harrisburg, but they are also usually quite treatable and not too debilitating.
