Knee Injury Settlement Claims
Knee injury is brutal to recover from without sufficient rest and treatment because it is one of our most frequently utilised joints. If a knee condition is not addressed as soon as symptoms develop, the damage may progress, necessitating surgery. If you have work-related knee discomfort or have been injured at work, RP Law Group can help you submit and defend a workers’ compensation claim to get the money you need to get back on your feet.
KNEE INJURIES IN THE WORKPLACE
Most of our clients who require assistance with a knee-related workers’ compensation claim work in jobs that require a lot of mobility, like kneeling and lifting, squatting, and crawling. People who install flooring, for example, are likely to spend a significant amount of time on their knee injuries, which can result in sprains, strains, rips, and other bodily harm.
Knee injury can occur in many circumstances. A fall or equipment failure often results in a sudden, debilitating knee tear or fracture. This is an acute injury that requires immediate medical attention and likely surgery.
Repetitive Stress Trauma (RST)
Repetitive stress trauma (RST), on the other hand, is a gradual deterioration of the muscles or ligaments surrounding the knee. Chronic inflammation caused by overexertion is the most common cause of these occupational disorders.
GETTING BENEFITS FROM WORKERS' COMPENSATION
As with any other occupational injury accident, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible. A physician’s diagnosis and documents must submit a knee injury workers’ compensation claim. You should also disclose the injury to your supervisor as soon as possible so that they can contact their insurance provider. If your employer is preventing you from receiving the benefits to which you are entitled, we can assist you in stating and defending your case.
