Charlotte Foot, Ankle, Knee and Leg Injuries Attorneys
Helping You Make the Right Decisions After a Work-Related Accident
If you have suffered an on-the-job accident that resulted in an injury to your foot, ankle, knee or leg, you are entitled to medical care and other workers' compensation benefits. However, you don't necessarily have to be involved in an accident to have a workers' compensation claim. You may also be eligible to receive workers' compensation coverage of lower body injuries caused by repetitive motion and stress to your body over time.
Since 1994, Ken Wayne & Associates has vigorously stood up to employers, insurance companies and others who threaten to minimize the amount of benefits paid out to you following a Charlotte foot, ankle, knee or leg injury. Lawyers at our firm have more than 50 years of experience helping workers in North Carolina secure the workers' compensation benefits they need to move forward after an injury.
Securing the Workers' Compensation Benefits You Deserve
Whether you dropped a box on your foot or slipped and twisted your knee, you need to report the accident to your employer as soon as possible to begin the workers' compensation claims process. A prompt report can help to expedite medical benefits and the coverage of any lost wages due to the accident.
In cases where a specific incident did not occur, you will still be asked to identify when you first felt foot, ankle, knee or leg pain and what you were doing at the time. For many people, this is next to impossible to do. Don't be discouraged. This is a tactic used by insurance companies in an effort to deny an injury claim based on the thought that it was a pre-existing or degenerative condition. If your injury appears to be caused by work-related repetitive motion or continued stress to your lower body, seek legal help to aid you in standing up for your rights.
