What do we know about these injuries?
When we look at data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for a recent year, we see that there were 104,000 knee injuries, 60,000 ankle injuries, and 52,000-foot injuries in the workplace. These injuries happen all the time in the workplace, and employers need to take measure to prevent them.
What are the most common leg injuries?
Our legs are complex and interconnected. An injury to one part of our leg affects the entire leg. Some of the most common injuries our Downey knee, ankle & foot injury lawyers, handle include:
- ACL and MCL tears
- Kneecap injuries
- Achilles’ tendon injuries
- Cartilage damage
- Foot or ankle sprains
- Muscle damage
- Repetitive stress injuries
What causes workplace knee, ankle, and foot injuries?
There are various causes of these injuries in the workplace, including:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Vehicle crashes
- Heavy machinery accidents
- Overextension of the joints
- Crush injuries
- And more
Many leg injuries are caused over longer periods of time by repeating the same motions over and over again. Repetitive stress injuries can be harder to pinpoint on a workplace cause, but that does not mean you should be denied coverage. It is vital that you seek medical attention as soon as a leg injury occurs or if you feel discomfort.
How will these injuries affect me?
Injuries to the knee, ankle, or foot can affect victims in a variety of ways. In many cases, these injuries are minor and require only a few days off from work. However, even mild leg injuries can result in extensive recovery times that keep you from earning an income. Injuries to the knee, ankle, or foot are often disabling and prevent a victim from returning to work at all.
