Have You Suffered A Knee Injury At Work?
Knee injuries are common in the workplace. The specific functions of many jobs can lead to a knee injury. Sudden accidents in any occupation, including slip-and-fall accidents, can lead to twisting injuries to the knee, broken kneecaps or damage to the ligaments or the knee joint itself. Jobs that require standing for long periods of time, constant walking to serve customers or medical patients or strenuous physical activity can often lead to repetitive stress injuries to the knee.
At the Law Office of Colonna, Doyle & Simeola, our lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience in providing solid guidance and staunch advocacy for workers’ compensation clients throughout Massachusetts. Meet with us in a free consultation to find out how we can help you.
Get The Compensation You Deserve
Because we all use our knees for general mobility, regardless of job duties, suffering a serious knee injury can be debilitating. The treatment to repair a damaged knee can be costly, painful and lengthy. Many people are not able to work while recovering from these injuries. If you have suffered harm to your knee while on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If you have missed work due to a work-related knee injury, obtaining Massachusetts workers’ compensation benefits to protect your future is critical.
The focused lawyers at Law Office of Colonna, Doyle & Simeola know how to pursue compensation for your injury. When you work with our firm, you will work directly with a senior-level attorney with experience in obtaining benefits for victims of serious workplace injuries such as:
- Torn knee ligaments, including medial collateral ligament (MCL), anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears
- Meniscal tears that may require surgery and significant rehabilitation
- Broken kneecap injuries from serious falls or other work-related accidents
- Strains, sprains and swelling from damage caused by walking and standing all day on the job
- Damage to the tendons, cartilage or ligaments in the knee from repetitive motion stress
Many injured workers are unable to work for an extended period of time while recovery from surgery or other treatment for knee injuries. We know how important workers’ comp benefits are for injured workers to cover lost wages, medical costs and the permanent loss of function and disfigurement that they may be entitled to receive. We have a passion for helping clients maximize workers’ comp benefits to allow them to put their lives back together after suffering an injury on the job. Whether you are in the first stages of pursuing a claim, have been denied benefits or believe that the insurance company terminated your benefits too early, we are here to help.
