  Leg, Knee & Ankle Injuries
   

Workplace accidents that involve injuries to the legs, knees, ankles and other joints are very common and affect thousands of people around the United States every year. These accidents can be as simple as a sprain or strain but they may also involve more serious injuries that require expensive medical treatment and a long period of rehabilitation. Workers’ compensation is designed to provide benefits to injured workers while they recover from these on-the-job injuries. Attorney Hank Barnett has more than two decades of experience assisting employees through the workers’ compensation claims process and in hearings when any part of their claims have been denied. If you have suffered a leg, knee or ankle injury at work, you need an experienced advocate by your side to get the benefits that you deserve.

If you had a pre-existing condition that was aggravated in an accident at work, workers’ compensation will still cover your leg, knee or ankle injuries. If the accident caused a new injury, workers’ comp benefits will likely cover that, too.

Types of Leg and Knee Injuries

The joints of the body, especially the lower half of the body, are more susceptible to injury as they get older and a lifetime of constant movement has worn them down. In physically demanding jobs, such as industrial and manufacturing positions, additional wear and tear may be placed upon the joints, causing more severe injuries that may prevent workers from returning to their positions.

Common injuries to legs, knees and joints include:

  • Sprained and strained ankles

  • Dislocation or rupture of tendons in the ankle or knee

  • Meniscus and ACL tears

  • Rupture of the Achilles tendon

  • Calf strains and sprains

  • Shin splints

  • Stress fractures

  • plantar fasciitis

These injuries may also come from accidents on the job, including workplace falls, forklift and other heavy loader accidents, falling debris, stairway falls and many others. In more severe cases, the injuries may cause permanent conditions that will require ongoing treatment.
