Work Injuries Involving Knees, Ankles And Feet

A knee or foot injury can compromise the most basic functions of everyday life and everyday work — walking, bending, carrying, and driving. If the injury is job-related and the pain or limitations prevent you from working, you are entitled to medical care and income benefits through your employer.

Skibiel Law in Jonesboro welcomes workers’ compensation claims involving leg, knee, ankle and foot injuries. We have more than 29 years of combined experience helping injured workers in metro Atlanta assert their rights and protect their long-term health.

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.

Client Testimonials

Mark was very knowledgeable and kept me informed with my case. He wasn’t intimidated with the large law firm. I know for a fact that without his expertise and diligent work ethic my settlement wouldn’t have reached the amount it did. He worked far beyond what I expected, meeting with the company doctor, therapist, and insurance representatives. HAVE A TALK WITH HIM ITS FREE!!!!!

Mark takes the time to get to know you as a person, not just as a case. He’s an attorney you can trust to keep you informed on every aspect of the case. I received all info about the case as soon as he did, and Mark carefully answered every question that I asked. I would recommend Mark to anyone who is in need of an honest attorney.

When my adjuster refused to pay for lost wages and for prescriptions, I felt the need to hire an attorney. After a brief consultation, I hired Mark. Within days, I saw results in my case. Everything that happened in my case went exactly as he told me it would happen in our initial consultation. When we went to the hearing, it seemed very one-sided and we won “hands down.” From start to finish, my case lasted less than nine months. My lost wages were recovered, and a sizeable settlement as well. Kudos Mark.

Mark explained, in detail, how the law would apply to my case and assured me it would take some time for me to accomplish my goal. During my case Mark and his staff kept my wife and me informed and updated. Every time my wife or I called Mark’s office we were able to get a response from either him or his staff. When we settled my case, it was more than I ever expected. Mark and his staff were professional in handling my claim. My experience with Mark and his office was wonderful!
