Workers’ Comp for Hip and Knee Injuries in Virginia
All joint injuries require immediate attention by a qualified physician. Not only are hip and knee injuries notoriously painful, but they often require extensive, long-term rehabilitative care. A hip or knee injury could keep you off the job for months, or even longer. Some of the most common hip and knee injuries include:
- Muscles strains and tears;
- Hip fractures;
- Labral tears;
- Post traumatic arthritis;
- Torn meniscus;
- Torn ACL;
- Torn MCL; and
- Knee dislocations.
You have rights under the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Act. The overwhelming majority of employers in the Commonwealth are required to provide no-fault workers’ comp coverage for their employees. If you suffered a significant hip or knee injury at work, notify your supervisor right away. You must report your injuries within 30 days, or you may not be able to file a workers’ comp claim. After you notify your supervisor, our Richmond work injury lawyers can help you seek benefits for medical treatment, lost wages, and permanent impairment.
