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.
