Foot, Ankle and Lower Leg Injury Attorneys in Lancaster Pa Aggressively Pursuing Maximum Compensation

Foot, ankle, and lower leg injuries are very common following any type of accident but can be particularly devastating following a car crash. Upon impact, a driver or passenger’s legs often buckle underneath the dashboard, causing a variety of catastrophic injuries. Our auto accident, personal injury, and workers’ compensation attorneys in Lancaster PA have represented thousands of victims who suffered these types of injuries and have recovered millions of dollars for their medical bills, lost wages, and their pain and suffering.

The reason these types of injuries can be so devastating is because of the infrastructure of our foot, ankle, and lower legs. Did you know that this area accounts for sixty bones, numerous ligaments, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues? It is no wonder that any impact or unnatural twisting or turning can leave an accident victim down for the count.

Types of Foot, Ankle and Lower Leg Injuries after Auto Accidents

Some of the most common injuries after an auto accident include:

  • Fractures
  • Laceration
  • Hematoma
  • Damaged Ligaments and Tendons
  • Sprains and Strains

While these types of injuries are common in motor vehicle accidents, they are also among the most injured body parts involved in workplace accidents.

Work-Related Foot, Ankle, and Lower Leg Injuries

Work-related injuries can result from:

  • Slip and Falls
  • Falls from Heights
  • Stepping on Sharp Objects
  • Tripping Over Loose Items on Floor
  • Work-Related Auto Accidents
  • Dropping Heavy Equipment on Food
  • Repetitive Motions
  • Standing for Long Periods of Time

Workers with the highest number of foot, ankle and lower leg injuries have jobs where employees spend most of their workday on their feet, such as:

  • Construction Workers
  • Roofers
  • Nurses
  • Auto Mechanics
  • Waiters and Waitresses
  • Loading Dock Workers
  • Factory Workers
  • Agriculture

These injuries can be extremely disabling and take time to recover. Often, they require surgery, rehabilitation, and lead to years of discomfort and pain.

On-the-job foot, ankle and lower leg injuries are eligible for coverage by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ comp benefits cover medical and therapy bills, and, most likely, two-thirds of your lost wages while you are unable to work.

Because of the many nuances of the workers’ compensation system in Pennsylvania, it is extremely important to have an experienced worker’s comp attorney on your side, ensuring you are getting compensation from every source possible.
