If you recently found out that your work injury will require surgery, or if workers' comp is denying you compensation for your surgery, contact our knowledgeable lawyers for assistance. We offer more than 20 years of experience, and we are dedicated to achieving optimal results for you during this difficult time.
Common Types Of Surgeries For Work-Related Injuries
Whether your injury was the result of a slip- or trip-and-fall injury, a car accident, repetitive motion or even assault, if the injury was related to your job duties, workers' compensation should provide benefits for all aspects of the injury, including surgery. Following are some common surgeries for work-related injuries:
- Spinal fusion, cervical disk surgery and other spinal cord surgeries
- Laminectomy/spinal decompression surgery
- Other bulging and herniated disk surgeries
- Other neck and back surgeries
- Surgery for traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Surgery to repair nerve damage resulting from a laceration
- Carpal tunnel surgery
- Shoulder/rotator cuff surgery
- Wrist, hand and elbow surgery
- Knee surgery
- Other total joint replacements
- Ankle and leg fracture repairs
- Crush injury surgery, including hand and finger crush injuries
- Burn injury surgery
Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for work injuries to leave the victim with permanent damage, even after surgery. Our attorneys will seek compensation for the full extent of your injury based on how it has impacted your life up until this point, as well as how it will continue to affect you in the future.
