Ankle injuries can significantly impact an employee’s ability to perform their duties. Whether you are working in a physically demanding job or in an office setting, an injured ankle can limit mobility, reduce productivity, and in severe cases, lead to long-term disability. It’s crucial for employees to understand their rights and the steps they need to take when they’ve suffered an ankle injury at work.
Common Causes of Workplace Ankle Injuries
Workplace ankle injuries can occur in various ways, including:
- Slips, trips, and falls
- Struck by falling objects
- Twisting or turning the ankle during movement
- Accidents involving machinery or equipment
- Jumping or falling from heights
Regardless of how the injury occurred, it’s essential to know that workers’ compensation is designed to cover such incidents, provided they happen in the course of employment.
Navigating Workers’ Compensation for Ankle Injuries
At Invictus Law, P.C., we understand the intricacies of workers’ compensation laws in California and are committed to guiding our clients through the process to ensure they receive the compensation they deserve. The first step after sustaining an ankle injury at work is to report it to your employer. California law requires that this be done within a certain timeframe, so prompt action is vital. Delaying the report can complicate your claim process. Next, seeking immediate medical attention is not only critical for your health but also plays a crucial role in your workers’ compensation claim. Medical records serve as essential evidence in your claim, documenting the extent and cause of your injury.
Workers’ compensation benefits for ankle injuries can include medical expenses, temporary disability benefits, and, in some cases, permanent disability benefits. If you’re unable to return to your previous work due to the injury, vocational rehabilitation might also be appropriate. A skilled and knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney can explain the benefits available to you and ensure that you receive every penny you are entitled to.
