Common Knee and Foot Injuries at Work
Knee, ankle, and foot injuries commonly result from workplace accidents. Construction, factory work, and other jobs that involve significant amounts of lifting or movement can result in overuse injuries. So much of what we do on a daily basis puts pressure on our knees, feet, and ankles, causing any number of injuries to the muscles, nerves, and tendons. Additionally, work in any environment can result in a sudden accident leading to acute injury. The workers’ comp attorneys at Invictus Law help workers injured through sudden accidents as well as workers harmed over time through repetitive motion and overuse.
Common impact-related incidents that result in knee and foot injuries include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Falls from height
- Struck by falling, flying, dropped, or rolling objects
- Landing on hard surfaces
- Scaffolding or ladder collapse
- Strenuous lifting, twisting or pulling
- Vehicle accidents
Knee and foot injuries also occur as a result of overuse. California workers’ comp covers cumulative injuries that develop over time, so long as work contributes to the stimuli leading to the injury. With help from a seasoned California workers’ comp attorney, you can recover compensation for knee and foot injuries such as:
- Heel spur syndrome
- Plantar fasciitis
- Hammer toes
- Functional foot imbalance
- Torn ACL
- Deteriorated cartilage
- Stretched and torn tendons
