Work Injuries Involving Knees, Ankles And Feet

McDonough, Georgia, Attorneys For Work-Related Joint Injury Claims
Practicing in Georgia workers’ compensation law since 1992, Mark A. Skibiel has extensive experience with workplace injuries to the lower extremities:
- Torn ligaments in the knee (ACL, MCL)
- Fractured or dislocated kneecap
- Torn cartilage
- Broken bones (femur, ankle, foot)
- High ankle sprains
- Broken toes
- Plantar fasciitis
- Knee and hip replacements
Knee and foot injuries can result in long periods of disability or permanent damage, especially if workers are denied proper medical treatment, rehab and recuperation time. We handle claims arising from workplace accidents, such as a fall or a machinery mishap. We also handle repetitive stress injury claims, such as damage to knees over time from lifting, squatting, kneeling or other rigors of the job.
Insurance companies often deny claims for knee injuries and foot injuries as not work-related. We excel at proving the causal connection to working conditions. We also make sure that clients receive necessary medical care and accommodations, from joint replacement or arthroscopic surgery to physical therapy or light-duty restrictions upon returning to work.
Injured knees and ankle joints are also prone to arthritis and other complications. Employers and insurers commonly deny these claims as pre-existing conditions. Through medical records and other documentation, we will illustrate how the work accident or job stressors caused the damage, aggravated a prior injury or compounded any existing degeneration.
