I Suffered a Knee Injury on the Job. Now What?

You may be wondering how you should pursue compensation for the knee injury you suffered due to work. Our Atlanta workers’ comp attorney has handled countless cases like yours in his over 30 years of experience and can help you take the next best step forward.

So what do you need to make sure you do following your injury?

  • Notify your employer or supervisor as soon as possible (within 30 days)
  • Make sure your employer has begun the claims process
  • Select a primary physician to evaluate your knee injury
  • Work with our firm to ensure you are given maximum benefits

Not only do we strive to recover the maximum amount of workers’ compensation available in your case, we also connect you with the best possible doctors and physicians for exceptional medical care. Our goal is to help you recover both physically and financially. From the very start of your workers' comp case, Attorney Kaleita will listen closely to your legal needs and concerns, giving you the personalized attention and support you deserve.

While some knee injuries may keep you out of work for only a month or two, others can be more extensive, particularly when surgery is required. An ACL tear, for example, is a severe injury that typically requires surgery, with a recovery period of up to six months before you can return to work. ACL is short for Anterior Cruciate Ligament, and ligaments take a long time to heal; this particular surgery requires replacing the ACL with a transplanted ACL, or with a tendon. It is a long recovery process, and you may find that you are not able to return to your original job when you recover, if your job requires heavy physical labor. It is important to have an experienced Workers' Compensation attorney to guide you through this process, to help you determine your capabilities, and to reach a settlement at the end that provides you with fair compensation given your permanent restrictions and limitations.

Putting Clients First in Everything We Do

At Douglas F. Kaleita, P.C., we treat our clients like people, not case numbers. In fact, we don't even assign case numbers to our clients. We use their names. We know that this can be a life-changing situation for you, which is why we are here to fight for the fair outcome you need to move forward. When you require extensive medical treatment, surgeries, prescriptions, and other expenses, it is reassuring to know that you have an advocate on your side you can trust.
