New York Shoulder & Knee Workplace Injuries

Let a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Fight for You

In New York, a workers’ compensation lawyer can help you file a claim for a settlement for your knee or shoulder 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 and therapy.

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.
