There are many ways you can find yourself with a debilitating foot, knee, or ankle injury, but many of the common situations involve workplace accidents or strain. Knee injuries may result from squatting for prolonged periods. Other foot and knee injuries may result from lifting accidents. While knee and foot injuries are often temporary, they can take you out of work for a prolonged time period and cost you a great deal of money to treat. And in some cases, the damage can be permanent and life-altering. You may not be able to return to your previous line of work and may be forced to pursue a new profession. If this is the result of negligence or a workplace injury, you deserve justice.
Why You Shouldn’t Wait to Seek Treatment
Many injuries to the knee involve joint dislocation or tendinitis. It is not uncommon to require surgery to recover your full range of motion and your ability to work. Be aware that an initial medical evaluation may miss important markers of serious and potentially long-lasting damage. In fact, going without the treatment you need could turn an acute problem into a chronic one. There is nothing worse than knowing that if you had acted fast and stood up for yourself, you could have saved yourself a lifetime of pain and disability.
