Dedicated Chicago Knee Injury Lawyers

Experienced Chicago Injury Attorney Fighting for Compensation for On-the-Job Knee Injuries

Going to work every day is hard on your knees. Your employer benefits directly from that wear and tear, but what is it doing to you? Even more to the point, who has to pay when you suffer a knee injury on the job?

At Malman Law, we work with many clients who’ve suffered knee damage in the course of their job duties, either because of a sudden injury or simply as a result of repeated use over weeks, months, or years. It’s a more common problem than you might think.

In fact, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, knee injuries afflict over 19 million Americans every year. A great many of those injuries are occupational in nature. After all, your job is where you spend the bulk of your time, so it makes sense that knee strain is likely to arise there.

Fortunately, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission is set up to provide financial compensation to workers with knee damage. Those funds are there to help them get the treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery that they need – and to compensate them for unfair losses associated with those injuries.

Unfortunately, the system doesn’t cover every injury or every worker. And even when Workers’ Comp does apply, individual claimants are frequently shortchanged or wrongfully denied.

Chicago, IL knee injury attorney at Malman Law can help make a difference. Our office aggressively pursues maximal compensation for our clients. This means that we help you fill out every form, comply with every requirement, and offer persuasive proof of every damage.

Mistakes are easy to make, but with an experienced Chicago, IL knee injury attorney on your side, you may be able to recover substantially more money than you might on your own. Let us help.

Why Are On-the-Job Knee Injuries So Common?

The knee is technically a joint, albeit a complex one. It is comprised of numerous muscles, bones, tendons, and ligaments, all of which interplay so that the knee can properly flex, absorb force, and maintain balance for your body.

Even in routine desk jobs with few physical demands, your knee is likely involved in the majority of your movements throughout the day.

The headlines are filled with stories of athletes who’ve endured knee damage. You’ve probably heard talk about injuries like ACL, MCL, or PCL damage, among others. Those can be serious, debilitating, and incredibly painful. But they aren’t unique to star athletes! Everyday workers in commonplace jobs can suffer those same injuries too – and frequently do.

Likewise, tears to the cartilage of the knee – also known as the meniscus – can be acutely painful, and they may drastically impair ordinary function. Such tears are possible even in relatively low-impact, low-physicality jobs.

Cartilage damage is common too, as are injuries to the anterior cruciate ligamentmedial collateral ligament, and posterior cruciate ligament.

Some injuries are less acute in nature, and arise gradually over time. They may manifest simply as joint pain or muscle aches in or around the knee. Patients frequently complain of stiff kneelocking joints, or difficulty bending and moving.

Given the dynamic and complicated physical workings of the knee, and the fact that the knee is relevant to almost everything that every employee is asked to do, it’s no surprise that these are among the most common workplace injuries in Illinois.

Please never neglect new or sudden problems in your knee. It is almost always in your best to seek medical attention and, if you have indeed suffered injury or impairment, you should talk with a Chicago, IL knee injury attorney about the possibility of filing a claim.

  • Is Your Employer’s Insurance Company Required to Pay You Benefits?

    That depends. If you aren’t sure, your lawyer can help you decide. Relevant factors include:

    • The nature and severity of your knee injury
    • Whether or not you sustained the injury in connection with your job
    • Whether or not your employer’s negligence (or someone else’s negligence in the job site) might have played a role in the injury
    • Whether your employer is subject to Illinois Workers’ Compensation law
    • Proof of the injuries and damages
    • And more

    Even if your injury isn’t covered, an experienced Chicago, IL knee injury attorney may be able to seek alternative means of compensation for you. Please never assume that you don’t have a case without talking to your lawyer first.

    I was rear-ended by a semi-truck on my way to work. I was transported to the hospital and my car was totaled. In the aftermath, Dan Petrich and Anna Schmidt from Malman Law helped me get set up with physical therapy and negotiated with the insurance companies to make sure the resulting settlement would cover my medical bills and a rental car until I could get a new car. I would highly recommend their services.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
