You should consult with a local attorney to discuss your options of requesting reasonable accommodations at work as you may be entitled under ADA or FEHA, including medical/disability leave and possibly modified schedule or duties, to the extent possible and feasable.

Your injuries are covered under worker's compensation laws for cumulative injuries like yours.: You need to immediately report your injury to your employer and file a claim for benefits such as temporary disability benefits. Feel free to call me at 213-388-7070 for a free consultation.
