Workplace Knee, Shoulder, & Joint Injury
Knee, shoulder, and joint injuries often result from work-related accidents or repetitive physical tasks. If the injuries stem from activities performed in the course of employment, the employee is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Do not overlook workplace injuries — prompt medical treatment could prevent permanent damage. In addition, even seemingly minor workplace injuries should always be reported — the employer needs timely notice of the injury to be held liable.
For more than 40 years, the Springfield workers’ compensation attorneys at Kanoski Bresney have helped countless clients collect workers’ compensation benefits necessary to cover medical care and lost wages for injured workers. We have the knowledge, skill and experience proving that knee, shoulder and joint injuries were work-related. Put our experience to work.
Which Profession Suffers From Knee, Shoulder, or Joint Injuries Most?
Painters, assembly workers, tradesmen and workers in a number of other industries often work on their knees or with their hands over their heads. Repetitive stress on the joints can lead to permanent bone, tendon, muscle or ligament damage.
We carefully investigate accident scenes to determine if a third party, such as a manufacturer or vendor, was at-fault. We are prepared to bring personal injury claims against negligent third parties. Our attorneys help injured employees cover lost wages and get medical care for their workplace injuries.
