Accidents at work can result in severe sprain and strain injuries. Many times, any thought of such a common injury is put off until later. Victims often assume they will heal on their own.
This can be a mistake. Sprains and strains can be severe and often are extremely painful, limiting mobility and the ability of an injured worker to perform duties on the job and at home.
Sprains and strains are caused by a sudden twist, a blow to the body or the awkward movement of a joint. These injuries involve stretching and tearing ligaments that support joints. They can occur after a single wrong move or after repeated motion and are common in nearly every job, from receptionist to construction worker.
Sprain and strain injuries commonly occur in the back, neck, knee, ankle and wrist. The Ryan E. Murphy Law Firm, LLC successfully pursues workers’ compensation benefits for victims of workplace strains, including:
Insurance companies often fight hard against paying workers’ compensation claims for sprains and strains. We stand up against powerful insurers and present strong cases for coverage. We document that an injury was caused or exacerbated by work and that the employee’s ability to work has been hindered.
Our experience in this area is significant, and we never blindly accept an employer’s denial of a sprain or strain claim. We vigorously advocate for full coverage.
Each sprain or strain injury case we accept is thoroughly investigated and diligently pursued. We gather medical documents and research all possible legal avenues in creating a sensible, results-driven strategy for obtaining maximum workers’ compensation.
