Knee Injury Workers' Compensation

Knee injuries can be devastating—often requiring long periods of recovery, physical therapy, and even surgery in the most severe cases. If your knee injury occurred while you were at work, you may think that workers’ compensation will cover your treatment and take care of your expenses while you recover and heal.

Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Employers and insurance companies may try to downplay your injury and lowball your claim to save money. This is especially difficult for injuries that deteriorate into permanent conditions, possibly requiring long-term financial support.

If you are having trouble receiving your workers’ compensation claim after a knee injury, Morgan & Morgan can help. Our workers’ compensation experts can keep you informed of all your options, including weekly disability benefits and any settlements you may wish to seek.

Those thinking about taking legal action may wonder if pursuing a workers’ compensation settlement is the right choice—and how they are calculated.

To help determine your best option, our lawyer can go over all of your available courses of action, such as appeals and settlements. If you go forward with seeking a settlement, its amount will ultimately be decided by assigning a dollar value to all the ways your injury has interfered with your ability to live and work.

Should I Pursue a Workers’ Compensation Settlement? 

Compensation for work injuries is often awarded in weekly benefits, but in some circumstances, a court will allow a settlement instead. Your attorney can help you decide whether a settlement is the best alternative for you, considering factors such as:

  • Are your injuries debilitating? Settlements are often made for cases where your work accident caused injuries that are difficult to heal, as well as those that interfere with your ability to work or conduct your day-to-day life.
  • Do you disagree with your offer of benefits? If you and your attorney decide that the benefits offered by your employer or insurance company won’t meet your needs, you may decide to pursue a settlement.
  • Do you need a lump sum? Workers’ compensation disability claims are usually offered in weekly benefits, but some injuries require larger amounts than these payments provide. If this applies to you, it may be worth pursuing a settlement delivered as a lump sum payment instead.

How Are Knee Injury Settlements Calculated?

If you decide to pursue a settlement and the court grants your request, the amount of your award will be based on how your injury has affected your life and your ability to earn money in the future, including:

  • Lost work
  • Medical bills
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Future medical procedures
  • Injuries that cannot fully heal and could become chronic
  • Injuries that result in partial or permanent disability
