Get Legal Help With Traumatic And Repetitive Knee Injury Claims

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 both indicate something 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 that you get the benefits you deserve.

At Morizio Law Firm, P.C., in Bridgeport/Stratford, Connecticut, we have significant experience helping workers with knee and leg injuries receive the benefits they are entitled to.

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 and muscles. As serious as a knee injury can be, these claims are the ones most often denied in 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 between the cartilage surfaces of the femur and patella is called the meniscus. A variety of ligaments, including the anterior cruciate, the posterior cruciate and the 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 resulted from an accident such as a fall from a ladder or developed over time through the stress of repetitive lifting and standing. They will take the time to explain both your medical and legal options, working with you toward the best possible outcome.
