Workers’ Compensation for a Leg or Joint Injury
You need your legs and feet solidly beneath you to do your job. A foot or knee injury affects your performance and your safety. Continuing to work after an injury could cause permanent damage to your body and could affect your worker’s compensation rights.
Martin Law stands up for your rights after a work-related injury to your leg, knee, ankle or feet. We work to secure the wage and medical benefits you need to recover and return to work with a healthy body.

Protect Your Health and Your Rights
A sharp pain in your foot. A popping sound in your knee. Swelling or stiffness in your ankle. You should always report any incident or symptoms to your employer, and see a doctor if the pain persists. If you fail to do so, the insurance company may later contest whether your joint injury was work-related. “Working through the pain” will not score any points with the boss, especially if a minor, treatable injury becomes a long-term worker’s comp claim.
Medical treatment and documentation are important to maximizing your workers’ compensation benefits. Your employer may steer you to a certain doctor, but it is your right as an injured worker to control your care. It’s your body and your future.
