Legal Help For Workers Who Have Suffered Knee And Shoulder Injuries
Workers who lift and carry materials, drive and operate equipment, and perform other strenuous physical activities are especially susceptible to knee and shoulder injuries. Falls and various other accidents can seriously injure anyone working in any occupation. If you have a torn rotator cuff, a torn knee ligament or meniscus, fracture or any comparable injury, working through the pain may be out of the question.
Suffering Due To A Sudden Accident Or ‘Wear And Tear’ Over Time?
You should report any work-related injury to your employer as soon as possible. Even if your condition was a problem you knew was worsening gradually, you must note the exact circumstances and time when your body part finally gave out and the pain became unmanageable. You may need surgery and be laid up for months or find that you are unable to return to your job at all.
