Suffering From A Work-Related Orthopedic Injury In Montgomery County?
A back, neck, shoulder or knee injury can be extremely painful and disabling. Even a “minor” foot problem can prevent a person from being able to do certain types of work.
These and any number of other orthopedic injuries involving the muscles, connective tissues (ligaments, tendons) and human skeletal system are common among today’s workers. Unfortunately, it is often not as easy as it should be for people to get the medical care and wage loss benefits they deserve from employers and workers’ compensation insurance providers.

Special Challenges In Orthopedic Injury Cases
There are two common problems we see with orthopedic injuries. The first is that when these injuries are chronic rather than acute — the condition develops over time rather than emerging suddenly — some workers are tempted to “work through the pain.” They don’t want to let their co-workers and managers down or they think they can’t afford to take time off. It is important to understand that you don’t do anyone any favors, and can do a lot of harm, by continuing to work with an injury.
The second problem has to do with the treatments that may be prescribed for your injury. Some injured workers may require appliances or devices to improve their comfort or mobility, but the insurer refuses to pay for these types of items. In other cases, insurers will try to deny coverage for massage, chiropractic treatments, or other less conventional therapies. If you’re facing these challenges, our firm can help.
