So much of life wears on your knees, including many activities for work. Twisted knees, broken kneecaps, torn ligaments (ACL, PCL, MCL"¦) and meniscus tears are not easy on anyone. If you sustain an injury to your knees because of your employment, the lawyers at Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices will help you get the benefits you deserve under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act.
You are entitled to medical treatment, braces, knee surgery, rehabilitation, wage compensation, and disability; even if you had a pre-existing condition or nobody witnessed the accident that caused your knee injury. From the date of your injury, you have 45 days to inform a person in management at your place of employment about your injury.
An example of how the lawyers at Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices assisted an employee who injured her knee because of her employment:
An elementary school art teacher stood up from helping a 6-year-old student, and slipped in a puddle of paint that had been spilled on the floor. Her knees landed awkwardly on the hard floor, fracturing one of her kneecaps. The school said that the spill had been her fault, and refused compensation. She called Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices, and our workers' compensation lawyers got her the medical treatment and physical therapy she needed to regain use of her knee.
