I Tore My ACL And Damaged My MCL In A Florida Work Accident. I Dont Believe My Work Is Compensating Me Fairly For My Injury. What Should I Do?
A: Serious knee injures can be debilitating and can cause you to be out of work for months. If you were injured on-the-job in Florida, it is only fair that your employer compensate you fairly for your injuries, medical bills, and lost wages due to time off of work.
When an ACL is completely torn, arthroscopic surgery typically is required, which can lead to months of physical therapy and time off of work. The cost of the MRI, surgery, and physical therapy can add up quickly. And, if you cannot work due to your knee injury, then you are losing wages on top of all of your medical bills.
If you were hurt at work, please call an experienced Fort Lauderdale workers’ compensation lawyer to make sure you are being treated fairly and getting all the compensation that is rightfully yours.
