How an Attorney Can Help That Has Experience with Knee Injury Cases

Experiencing a knee injury while on the job can have serious consequences. Such injuries not only impact the knee but can also have unfavorable effects on other parts of your body. In California, a knee injury sustained at work may qualify you for a substantial workers’ compensation settlement, given that the knee is a weight-bearing joint and any damage to it may worsen over time.

Seeking the assistance of a lawyer specialized in knee injuries is crucial if you suffer such an injury. Our workers’ compensation attorney is fully equipped to assess the treatment required for your knee immediately and in the future. Our lawyer will also guarantee that you receive the appropriate permanent impairment rating and future medical care for your lifetime to ensure your protection.

It’s worth emphasizing that knee injuries at work can occur in a variety of ways. Falling, tripping, or slipping could damage your knee. Alternatively, your knee might deteriorate over time, such as from lifting and carrying heavy objects over long distances for years. Such labor can have a significant adverse effect on your knee.

Your knee injury could lead to an altered gait or unbalanced walk, affecting other body parts like your back and other leg. A workers’ compensation attorney can review your medical records to include these treatments in your case, even if they arise years after the initial injury.

While some may downplay their knee injury, returning to work prematurely, it is imperative to seek proper care as soon as possible after the injury.

Our team handles all work-related knee injuries, including but not limited to torn meniscus, torn ACL, torn MCL, knee replacements, knee repair surgery, and more. If you suffer a work-related knee injury, you may be eligible for temporary disability, permanent impairment settlement, future medical care, free medical treatment, and more.

The knee is comprised of three bones – the patella (kneecap), the tibia (lower leg bone), and the femur (upper leg bone), all of which are covered with elastic cartilage to facilitate movement. Knee injuries could range from patella dislocation or fractures to meniscus tears, sometimes requiring surgery. Long-term injuries could result from repetitive movements like squatting or standing, leading to cartilage damage. In all these cases, a California workers compensation attorney from our firm can help you secure the necessary compensation.

The breakdown of knee cartilage or the development of arthritis can hinder your ability to perform work tasks and daily activities; such conditions can develop even without strenuous job requirements. Knee injuries will require disability evaluations, focusing on your walking ability, range of motion, and similar factors.
