Connecticut Knee Injury Lawyer

Leg Injury Attorney

At first, a work-related knee injury may seem to be a minor inconvenience. You may be tempted to push through the pain and continue with your job duties. This can be a dangerous mistake. Sudden lower extremity pain, or pain that has developed over time, can be an indication of something very serious.

Whether you have been diagnosed with a work-related knee or leg injury or think you may have an injury caused by years of climbing ladders and stairs, you need to make certain your rights are protected. Speaking with a knowledgeable workers' compensation attorney may be your best option for ensuring you get the benefits you deserve.

Understanding the Anatomy of the Knee

The knee is one of the most fragile areas of the human body. Every year thousands of workers' compensation claims are filed involving dislocations and torn ligaments, tendons or muscles. As serious as a knee injury can be — these claims are the ones that are most often denied within the workers' compensation system.

The knee joint is formed where the femur and patella meet in the leg. The end of each bone is coated with cartilage. The material located between the cartilage surfaces of the femur and patella is called the meniscus. A variety of ligaments including anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate, and medial collateral hold the knee joint together. When a worker suffers trauma to the knee, the meniscus can be damaged or a ligament can be torn.

The attorneys at our firm understand the anatomy of the knee and how damage may have occurred by sudden injury, such as a fall from a ladder, or developed over time through the stress of repetitive lifting and standing. They take the time to explain both your medical and legal options, working with you toward the best possible outcome.
