Recovering Workers Compensation Benefits for Ankle Injuries

ankle injuryYour ankle joint performs complicated motions that allow you to enjoy pertinent movements such as standing, walking, running, sidestepping and bending down. You probably don’t think about how important this joint is until you have sustained a debilitating injury. Even the slightest injury to your ankle can interfere with your ability to work and to enjoy your life.

If you injured your ankle while at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. At the Law Offices of Dan T. Matrafajlo, our New Jersey workers’ comp lawyers are dedicated to getting you the maximum benefits under New Jersey’s Workers’ Compensation law for your on-the-job ankle injuries.

 Getting Compensation for Ankle Injuries

The ankle and foot are complex, delicate structures that are essential to mobility.  Under normal circumstances, they withstand a lifetime of pounding. However, an ankle injury changes this scenario. If the injury is not treated with appropriate and immediate medical treatment, you may never again be able to walk or run easily without pain.

Construction workers, ironworkers and first responders are particularly prone to ankle injuries due to the inherent nature of their jobs. However, employees who work in an office can also injure their ankles as a result of loose carpeting and falling or tripping over objects obstructing their walkway.

Injuries to the ankle may result in your inability to perform your duties at work for a length of time, resulting in lost wages and significant medical costs. This is precisely why you need to hire an experienced lawyer to help you file for workers’ compensation benefits.
