DuPage County Work Related Knee Injury Attorney

Workers' Compensation Attorneys for Knee Injuries Occuring at Work in Illinois

Much of what happens during your life can wear on your knees, including many activities performed for work. Twisted knees, broken kneecaps, torn ligaments (ACL, PCL, MCL), and meniscus tears are not easy on anyone. If you sustain an injury to your knees because of your employment, you will usually be able to receive workers' compensation benefits. The lawyers at Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices will help you get the benefits you deserve under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act.

Workers' Comp Benefits for Knee Injuries

If you can show that your knee injury occurred in a workplace accident or was otherwise caused by work you performed, you may be entitled to the following benefits:

  • Medical benefits - Workers' compensation will cover the cost of all necessary medical treatment related to your knee injury, including knee surgery, knee braces, rehabilitation, and doctor's visits or other forms of ongoing care.
  • Disability benefits - If your knee injury prevents you from working, during your recovery you may be eligible for temporary disability benefits. These benefits will provide you with two thirds of your average wages, or if you are able to work at a reduced capacity, two thirds of the difference between your wages prior to being injured and the wages you are currently earning.
  • Vocational rehabilitation - If your knee injury is so severe that it prevents you from returning to your previous job, workers' compensation will cover the cost of training for a new job or other services to help you find employment.

After the date of your injury, you have 45 days to inform a person in management at your place of employment. If your employer denies that your injury is work-related, you may need to file a workers' compensation claim with the state of Illinois, and our attorneys can assist you in doing so.

The following is an example of how the lawyers at Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices assisted an employee who injured her knee because of her employment:

An elementary school art teacher stood up from helping a 6-year-old student and slipped in a puddle of paint that had been spilled on the floor. Her knees landed awkwardly on the hard floor, fracturing one of her kneecaps. The school said that the spill had been her fault, and it denied her workers' compensation claim. She called Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, and our workers' comp lawyers got her the medical treatment and physical therapy she needed to regain use of her knee.
