Andrus Law - Workers' Compensation For Joint Injuries

Updated: May 14

Joint injuries can be debilitating and significantly impact your ability to work and enjoy daily activities. If you've suffered a joint injury in the workplace, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits to help cover medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs. At Andrus Law Firm PLC, we specialize in representing individuals with workplace injuries, including joint injuries. Our experienced team is here to guide you through the workers' compensation process and ensure you receive the support you need.



What are Joint Injuries?


Joint injuries can affect various parts of the body, including the knees, shoulders, elbows, wrists, and ankles. These injuries can result from sudden trauma, repetitive strain, or overuse in the workplace. Common types of joint injuries include:


  • Sprains and strains

  • Dislocations

  • Tendonitis

  • Bursitis

  • Cartilage, tendon, and muscle tears

  • Fractures


Workers' Compensation for Joint Injuries


If you've sustained a joint injury while performing work-related duties, you have the right to seek workers' compensation benefits. These benefits may include:


  • Medical Treatment: Workers' compensation covers the cost of medical treatment for your joint injury, including doctor's visits, diagnostic tests, surgery, physical therapy, and prescription medications.


  • Temporary Disability Benefits: If your joint injury prevents you from returning to work temporarily, you may be eligible for temporary disability benefits to replace a portion of your lost wages during your recovery period.


  • Permanent Disability Benefits: In cases where your joint injury results in permanent impairment or disability, you may be entitled to permanent disability benefits to compensate for the loss of earning capacity and ongoing medical needs.


  • Vocational Rehabilitation: Workers' compensation may also cover vocational rehabilitation services to help you retrain for a new job if your joint injury prevents you from returning to your previous occupation.


  • Death Benefits: In the unfortunate event that a joint injury leads to the death of a worker, workers' compensation provides death benefits to dependents to help cover funeral expenses and provide financial support.
