Workers’ Compensation | Joint Injuries | Shoulder, Elbow, and Wrist Injuries | Hip, Knee and Ankle Injuries | Neck and Spinal Cord Pain

The most common type of workplace injury involves trauma to the joints. Whether you work in construction and spend hours operating heavy hand or power tools or you work in a warehouse lifting and loading items hour after hour, you are at risk of traumatic or repetitive stress injury.

Examples of Joint Injuries

Workers’ compensation benefits are available for a variety of muscle, tendon, nerve or ligament injuries involving any joint, including:

  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist or finger
  • Hip, knee, ankle or toes
  • Neck, back, jaw or spinal cord

Does Workers’ Comp Cover Your Injury?

When you’ve hurt a shoulder, elbow, hip, knee or other joint, the pain can make it difficult to perform many of the simple day-to-day tasks, let alone your job. You may have a right to benefits under the New York workers’ compensation laws, but the process can be complicated, intimidating and difficult to pursue on your own. Your chances of obtaining fair compensation are better with an attorney at your side than without one.
