Knee Injuries And Workers’ Comp Claims
Serious knee injuries can occur from an on-the-job accident or through the performance of repetitive, work-related duties. Regardless of how the chronic pain started, ignoring it will not make it go away. In fact, you could be facing a lifetime of medical problems.
At Rosado, Apat & Dudley, LLP, we fight to maximize workers’ compensation benefits for our hardworking clients left unable to work because of:
- Knee sprains, strains and swelling
- Repetitive motion injuries, including torn ligaments, tendons and cartilage
- Broken kneecaps
- Below-the-knee amputation
We offer a free initial consultation and serve people throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area from offices in Queens, Nassau County (Hicksville) and the Bronx. Call 800-708-8917 or contact us online for an appointment.
The Lifelong Challenges That Come With Knee Injuries
Do not presume that knee pain is a minor issue. Left untreated, you could be facing physical therapy and surgeries. Do not accept an initial rejection by your workers’ compensation insurance provider because your knee problems were a pre-existing condition. Turning down claims is a tactic meant to discourage otherwise legitimate claims.
At Rosado, Apat & Dudley, LLP, we remain at your side from the moment you retain us until your case is resolved. While we begin to assemble your case, you attend to the following:
- Notify your employer of the injury.
- Schedule an appointment with your doctor.
- Talk about a possible workers’ compensation claim.
- Attend all appointments, therapy sessions and surgeries.
