Sustaining a knee injury on the job can of course be quite painful. These are often the result of twisting motions and falls. We will work hard to get you to the best orthopedic doctors at the outset of your claim. At the Law Offices of Laura Lanzisera, we will also fight for your rights to obtain certain medical treatments such as knee replacements, which are often initially denied by the workers’ compensation insurer. Our workers’ compensation attorney has more than a decade of experience in fighting these claims.
Another common knee injury/condition is osteoarthritis. Too often, an unrepresented injured worker will obtain an opinion from the doctor selected by the insurance company who will opine that the injury is not work related. However, osteoarthritis can be aggravated by a work-related injury. The workers’ compensation insurer is responsible for the aggravation of the pre-existing condition.
Laura Lanzisera has handled these claims from both sides – she has represented the insurers and knows the tactics they use. For the last decade, she has been using her expertise to fight only for the injured worker. Her practice is exclusively dedicated to helping injured workers.
