Work-Related Muscle Injuries
From repetitive use to one-time incidents, muscle injuries are common in the workplace. If you’re here, it’s likely because you or a loved one is now suffering from one of those muscle-related injuries.
A muscle sprain or strain may sound like a minor injury. However, left untreated or unchecked, such an injury can lead to debilitating pain and can leave you out of work for weeks—or much longer.
Whether you’re hurting due to carpal tunnel syndrome or lower-back sprain/strain, know you can get the financial compensation you need to make up for lost wages and to pay your medical bills. Our legal team at Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo has the experience and dedication to help you get what you need.
Sprains, Strains, And Torn Muscles Are Leading Work-Related Muscle Injuries
According to the Mayo Clinic, “A strain is a stretching or tearing of muscle or tendon. A tendon is a fibrous cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones.” Such strains and sprains accounted for nearly 38% of all work-related injuries in Pennsylvania in 2017, says a report by the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation, Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry. The top three body areas to receive these injuries were the:
- Trunk (back, chest, and abdomen)
- Upper extremities (shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, and fingers)
- Lower extremities (hips, legs, knees, ankles, feet, and toes)
Such injuries can be severe. They can take a long time to heal, require extensive medical expenses, and cause a lot of missed time from work. Some can have lifelong implications. So, when you’re seeking compensation for your work-related muscle injuries, it’s important you work with a workers’ comp lawyer who can get you the results you require.
