What Causes A Torn Meniscus?
The menisci are C-shaped pieces of cartilage that cushion the space between the thighbone and shinbone of the leg. A tear in the meniscus results in inflammation, and bone-on-bone friction, which, if not treated properly, can cause irreversible damage to the knee.
This kind of injury typically occurs through consistent wear-and-tear from repetitive motions, or from incidents of knee twisting while the joint is bearing weight. The torn meniscus is often seen in labor-intensive jobs, but can happen in any situation that places the joint under stress, such as auto accidents or slip-and-fall accidents.
Experience And Skill In Cases Of Denied Or Undervalued Claims
If you have suffered a torn meniscus because of on-the-job activities or because of another party’s negligence, you are well-advised to seek legal representation. Your workers’ compensation or personal injury claim should be handled with thorough investigation and an in-depth understanding of how the injury has affected your life in order to recover maximum compensation.
Unfortunately, many people who file workers’ comp claims for a repetitive motion workplace injury end up struggling to prove that the injury is a direct result of issues at work. Your best chance for a strong case is to report injuries immediately to your boss and discuss your case with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
