Getting the Workers’ Compensation Benefits You Deserve
In order to get the workers’ compensation benefits that you deserve for your workplace knee injuries, it is first important to have a basic understanding of the anatomy of the knee. The knee joint is formed where the femur, or thighbone, and the patella, or shinbone, meet in the leg. Each bone’s surface is coated with a form of cartilage called the condyle. This is where the bone meets at the knee joint. The cushion material located between the condyle and shinbone is called the meniscus. The ACL, MCL, LCL, and PCL are the ligaments that hold the joint together.
Work-related injuries often cause injury to these delicate joints and ligaments. And these types of injuries almost always require expensive surgical repair of the knee and require an extensive recovery period.
