Many people who suffer injuries to their feet or ankles in slip-and-fall accidents at work let themselves believe that their accidents were minor and their injuries will heal over time. Having handled these claims for decades, our Charlotte work injury lawyers know better.
The number of joints and ligaments in your foot and ankle can present significant challenges when the area suffers trauma in an accident. The injuries do not heal well, which can cause you to develop arthritis. In addition, the pain associated with your injuries can cause you to alter how you walk and move about in order to alleviate your pain and discomfort. The result of favoring the injury in one foot or ankle can lead to additional joint injuries, such as knee or shoulder injuries. The uneven weight distribution can also lead to chronic back pain or a back injury.
When you come to DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A., our legal team will use its decades of experience to help you pursue the full workers’ compensation benefits that you are entitled to for your foot or ankle injuries, including benefits related to subsequent injuries that are generated from your foot or ankle injuries. Also, when your injuries involve someone other than your employer who was negligent, such as in a work-related car or truck accident, our personal injury law firm can explore other opportunities for compensation beyond your workers’ comp claim.
Ankle and foot injuries can be devastating to your ability to work. If there were additional negligent circumstances involved in your work injury, you may be entitled to seek additional compensation.
