Kansas City Torn ACL Attorney
A torn ACL can have major implications, especially for individuals whose careers depend on their mobility. ACL tears can result from a myriad of situations, including car accidents, work-related injuries, sports-related injuries, slips and falls, and so forth.
If you or a loved one suffered a torn ACL at work or due to the negligence of another, it is important to seek out the legal expertise of a Kansas City torn ACL attorney.
Torn ACLs in Work-Related Injuries
Next to sports-related injuries, the most common causes of torn ACLs are workplace injuries. Workplace-related ACL tears can result from forceful and repeated strenuous lifting, unmarked danger zones (such as a wet area of floor), and a lack of proper care for employee ergonomics. Regardless of the cause of injury, if it happened during your duties at work, your workers’ compensation should cover medical expenses.
If your employer has not initiated a workers’ comp plan or the insurer is not offering fair and reasonable compensation, you should seek the guidance of an attorney experienced in employment law.
Torn ACL Complications
Unfortunately, not treating an ACL injury can lead to some very serious consequences, including arthritis or further tears in the knee’s meniscus. Having pain-free motion in the knee is essential for many jobs, including carpenters, plumbers, waiters, and even office employees who have to sit at a desk for long periods of time.
If treating the ACL, the extensive treating time can be exhaustive and frustrating, while also resulting in thousands in medical costs and physical therapy.
