Let a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Fight for You
In New York, a

work injury. Knee and shoulder injuries are serious and debilitating work
injuries that can require extensive medical care and can cause an employee
to lose time from work. If you sustained a neck and shoulder injury or
if one of your knees was injured in the course of your employment, you
should contact an experienced NYC
personal injury lawyer to represent you in your claim.
Any employee is at risk of injuring their shoulder or knee on the job.
However, there are certain professions that are more susceptible to these
kinds of injuries. Some of the types of workers who injure their shoulders
and knees more frequently include construction workers, warehouse and
delivery workers, painters, builders, and many other types of professions
that require reaching, bending, lifting, or kneeling. Continued stress
on the shoulders and knees can cause a repetitive stress injury, which
is a culmination of many years of utilizing the shoulders or knees every day.
If you have suffered a knee injury or a shoulder injury at work, you should
contact a NY workers’ comp law firm to
schedule a consultation.
Serious Compensation for Serious Injuries
Knee injuries cause severe and permanent pain. Some of the more common
types of knee injuries are torn meniscus and torn ligaments, especially
the ACL. These injuries often require surgical intervention to repair
the damage, followed by extensive physical therapy. In extreme cases,
some patients require knee replacements. Any of the treatment options
for a serious knee injury require extensive medical leave from employment.
This recuperation time causes lost wages to the employee.
Shoulder injuries are also very serious and debilitating injuries. The
most common types of shoulder injuries include shoulder impingement, rotator
cuff tears, labral tears, and shoulder fractures. Treatment options for
these injuries include surgery, physical therapy, and pain management.
Workers who have shoulder injuries often require an extensive break from
work to handle their medical care and to heal from their injuries. Shoulder
injuries and shoulder surgeries can be extremely painful, and many victims
of shoulder injuries never return to their full capacity, even after surgery
If you suffered a shoulder or knee injury, you need a New York workers’
comp lawyer who will make sure you get a reasonable amount of compensation
from the insurance company for your medical care and lost wages.
