Avoid Delays and Rejections by Getting a Lawyer’s Help

The process for receiving workers’ compensation for a knee injury in South Carolina is complicated and full of opportunities for potential mistakes. Those who have been injured are expected to keep very precise records, to meet numerous deadlines, and to be able to explain their situation at a hearing if necessary.

When the smallest error on an application or lack of clarity about dates or causes can result in delays in your compensation or even a rejection of your claim, you need to make sure you get everything right the first time (or during your appeal if you have already seen your claim rejected). This is a great deal to ask from those who already have the significant burdens of stress, pain, financial distress, and work insecurity to deal with.

By hiring a workers’ compensation attorney for your knee injury, you can rest more comfortably knowing you have someone on your side with experience helping others just like you get through this difficult process. A workers’ compensation lawyer will know the process from start to finish as well as all the laws and expectations related to your claim. They can help you stay organized, get your information straight, and meet your deadlines without burdening yourself with these responsibilities.

Finally, and most importantly, a workers’ compensation lawyer can vastly improve the likelihood you get your claim accepted fully and quickly without any delays or extra demands placed on you.

Common Causes of Knee Injuries in the Workplace

Knee injuries are very common in every kind of workplace. Injuries can range from short-term pain to life-long disability. To get a better idea of what a knee injury looks like in a South Carolina workplace, here are some of the most common ways knee injuries are sustained on the job:

  • Slipping, falling, or tripping: People fall more often than most realize, and every workplace is a potential danger for a serious slip. Whether it’s over-polished floors, a poorly secured carpet, or a spill no one cleaned up, a slip or a trip can lead to severe knee damage.
  • Strains and sprains from heavy lifting: Once again, while heavy lifting is often associated with certain jobs of a more physical nature, everything from lifting construction materials to lifting heavy boxes in an office can lead to harm to the knee.
  • Falls from a height: Like the above, a fall can happen anywhere. If a ladder is unstable, it can lead to a fall for an individual at any job.
  • Too much standing on the feet: Jobs that require a lot of standing can lead to repetitive damage to the knees that cause chronic discomfort.
  • Working in awkward positions: Those who don’t sit and stand naturally at their job are also at risk of long-term, slow damage that may require medical assistance to treat.
  • Accidents due to motor vehicles or heavy machinery: Accidents can happen anywhere from a parking lot to a factory floor. The accident may involve a motor vehicle, a machine, or other equipment, but the end result is damage to the knees that must be attended to.

If you are dealing with a knee injury as a result of an accident at work, you should seek workers’ compensation, regardless of the specifics of your case. Contact us for assistance.
