Waukegan Knee Injury Lawyer

Lake County Work-Related Knee Injury Lawyers

Attorneys Representing Victims of Work-Related Knee Injuries in Libertyville

Suffering a work-related knee injury is an immediate cause for concern. You need to seek proper medical treatment as quickly as possible to prevent further damage. Waiting to get the medical attention you need could lead to lasting disability.

At the Richmond law offices of Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., we represent those who have suffered an on-the-job knee injury in both denied workers' compensation and third-party liability claims. Contact us to arrange a free initial consultation with an attorney experienced in both workers' compensation (commonly referred to as "workers' comp" or "workman's comp") claims and personal injury lawsuits.

Maintaining Your Workers' Compensation Rights

Jobs that require repetitive standing, lifting, and moving around can place a great deal of stress on a worker's knees, resulting in work-related knee injuries. Pain and inflammation can make it difficult to perform necessary job functions. In these cases, a workers' compensation claim may be opened for your work-related knee injury. However, not all employers are willing to allow their employees to take part in the benefits Illinois law provides. In those circumstances, it is imperative to speak with a workers' compensation attorney.

At Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., we are committed to helping our clients understand their rights pertaining to work-related knee injuries and surgeries including:

  • Total knee replacement
  • Tibia fracture
  • Patellar dislocation or fracture
  • Patellar realignment
  • Fibula fracture
  • Torn meniscus
  • Torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament)

Investigating Third Party Liability

In our more than 30 years of practice, we have come to realize that many work-related knee injuries can be attributed to both an employer and a third party. For example, if a faulty piece of equipment causes you a work-related knee injury, both your employer and the manufacturer of the equipment may be held responsible for a portion of the liability.

Knee injuries that are not properly cared for can result in long-term disability or a lifetime of limited mobility, severe arthritis in the knee joint, and chronic pain. Make certain you are pursuing every available option for compensation by contacting Salvi & Maher, L.L.C. at 847-662-3303 to schedule a free consultation at one of our convenient offices in Lake County, Cook County, DuPage County, and McHenry County. We will only collect attorneys' fees and associated costs if we recover a verdict or settlement in your favor.
