Work-Related Knee Injury Claims
Whether you were hurt in a workplace accident or felt a "pop" while performing your duties, you are covered for injuries to your knees, shoulders or other joints. You are entitled to free and proper medical treatment and your lost wages for time away from work.
However, employers and their insurance carriers may deny your claim or try to control which doctors you see. Those doctors may not be qualified to treat your knee or joint injury, or may be more loyal to your employer's bottom line than your best interests.
Serving injured workers since 1993, the law firm of Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh has represented hundreds of clients in the Metro Atlanta area and statewide Georgia. Call our attorneys at 877-572-3949 to learn your rights in a free consultation.
