Michigan Workers’ Comp Attorneys For Joint Injuries
If you are suffering from joint pain that affects your ability to work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in Michigan. Joint injuries — and musculoskeletal disorders in general — are often caused or aggravated by work duties. Your job may require you to stay in one place and make the same movements over and over, or your job may require you to jerk or lift heavy objects. Whatever your situation may be, you should talk to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney if you have suffered a work-related joint injury.
At Steele & Ferguson, P.C., our workers’ compensation lawyers have more than 30 years of experience, and we have helped thousands of workers win millions of dollars in benefits. We know how to build strong workers’ compensation claims for joint injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome and cumulative trauma injuries, otherwise known as repetitive stress injuries.
What If My Work Duties Aggravated My Existing Joint Injury?
Sometimes workers’ compensation insurance companies try to deny benefits by claiming that joint pain — arthritis, for example — is not work-related. However, many types of job duties can aggravate an existing joint injury. If your claim for a musculoskeletal injury has been denied, let us review your claim to see if an appeal is appropriate for your case. Despite what the insurance company says, you may be owed medical benefits and wage loss benefits if your joint injury has reduced your ability to work.
Our workers’ compensation attorneys have a long record of success in workers’ compensation claims, including cases that were won after benefits were initially denied. For more on that, please see our overview of denied workers’ comp benefits.
