Contact The Tadda Law Firm in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. We will help you explore every avenue of recovery. Call us at 800-487-5562 for a free initial consultation.
Debilitating Knee Injuries
Knee injuries may occur as the result of being involved in a car crash, slipping in a grocery store, or getting into an accident while riding your motorcycle. A serious accident to the knee may require rehabilitation or even knee replacement.
Even if your accident did not occur at work, a serious injury may prevent you from ever returning to a job which requires you to climb ladders or scaffolding, kneel or crawl. Getting compensation for a work-related knee injury may include obtaining financial support for vocational rehabilitation.
Knee Injury and Workers’ Compensation
If a work accident has resulted in an injury to your knee, it is important to see your doctor right away and fill out an accident report. Taking these steps early on will ensure that your workers’ compensation claim is handled properly with no glitches or lack of medical evidence to support your claim.
While people tend to recover well from knee injuries, it is not always possible to return to work. We work to obtain compensation to cover vocational rehabilitation to train people for new jobs in less physically demanding industries.
