Virginia Workers’ Comp Cases and Knee Injury Treatments

No matter what type of knee injury you may have suffered, if it was the result of work-related tasks or activities, you could be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. To learn what your rights are, consulting with Richmond, Virginia, attorneys should be your next step.  

Workers’ comp cases may cover medical treatments for work-related injuries. This can be very helpful since you may be facing expensive medical bills. In addition, you may be unable to work for an extended period of time. This could also entitle you to receive compensation for your lost wages. 

Treatment will be dependent on the exact type of injury and severity but could include any of the following: 

  • elevation;
  • rest;
  • ice therapy;
  • compression;
  • knee splint;
  • crutches;
  • knee immobilizer;
  • physical therapy;
  • medication for pain and/or swelling; and
  • surgery. 

Recovery time could last weeks or even months. If the injury was disabling, you may not be able to return to work at all, or at least not in the exact position you once held. 

Virginia workers’ comp cases involving knee injury can become complex. You may even find that your claim has been denied. If you need help, contact Richmond, Virginia, attorneys as soon as possible.
