Regardless of your profession, there is always a chance that you could suffer an on-the-job injury. While some injuries are more serious than others, each and every type should be examined by a medical professional.
A knee or shoulder injury could require detailed and long-term medical care. Furthermore, this type of injury could keep you out of work for an extended period of time.
An example of a serious knee injury is a torn ACL. Not only does this require surgery, but it also means you won't be able to walk for quite some time.
Shoulder injuries are just as serious, such as those involving tears of the rotator cuff.
At our law firm, we understand the seriousness of shoulder and knee injuries. These can result in medical expenses, lost income and a variety of other damages. On top of all this, any injury can cause severe pain and discomfort.
It's our job to help you feel better about what the future will bring. This means many things, such as explaining your rights as an employee.
If you are concerned about what the future will bring, you need to learn more about your legal rights. This means many things, including the ability to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits.
If your employer's insurance company is delaying the payment of benefits for any reason, such as stating that you were not injured on the job, you need to take action. You have the right to compensation, and you should do whatever it takes to put yourself in position to receive this money as quickly as possible.
