A serious knee or ankle injury can make it hard for you to find sustainable employment and can interfere with your quality of life. At The Previant Law Firm, S.C., our Milwaukee work injury attorneys have helped people with knee and ankle injuries get compensation from all liable parties. If your injury occurred as a result of your job, your employer may be responsible for paying your medical bills, lost wages, and any financial damages to cover your mental and emotional pain and suffering. In addition, if your injury makes it impossible for you to secure work, your former employer may also be obligated to compensate you for the potential earnings you could have enjoyed if not for your injury.
For more information on your right to compensation after a knee or ankle injury, call (414) 240-1185.
Repetitive Motion Ankle & Knee Injuries
Repetitive motion injuries are quite common in the workplace because many employees perform the same actions day in and day out to make a living. If you suffer significant pain because you use your legs in the same manner over long periods of time, you may have a repetitive motion injury. Our injury lawyers can evaluate your injury and determine whether or not you have a case.
Common types of knee and ankle injuries that may be partially caused by repetitive motion include:
- Sprained ankle
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury
- Torn meniscus
- Dislocated knee
- Tendon rupture
If you know your injury is work-related, the first thing you should do is notify your employer. However, do not sign any settlement agreement proposed by your employer until you first consult a competent Milwaukee injury attorney. You have rights to compensation that you should not unwittingly forfeit — and it is our job to protect your rights.
