Common Knee Or Leg Injuries
There are many different kinds of workplace leg or knee injuries. Some of the most common – and most serious – injuries include:
Tendinitis, particularly in the knee
Burn injuries to the leg
Loss of limb
Severe leg pain
Persistent knee pain
Sometimes, these injuries occur due to performing the same physical task at work for months or years in a row. But in many cases, many leg or knee injuries at work occur due to a single, sudden injury. Either way, we can help you explore all your legal options.
We Work For You
The most important thing if you sustain an injury to your leg or knee is to make sure you receive the medical treatment you need so you can fully recover. This means making sure your injury is properly diagnosed and that you receive the time you deserve to fully recover.
Some employers can be difficult about leg injuries. They might try to claim that you hurt yourself outside of work. Or they might try to downplay the severity of your injury and push you to return to work before your injured leg or knee has fully healed.
That’s not right. That’s why we take such cases so seriously. We believe you should have the time and support you need to get better after your workplace injury. Find out how we can help you. Contact us and schedule your free case consultation.
