Hip and Leg Injuries
Helping individuals injured in on the job accidents for over 30 years
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), over three million people were injured in nonfatal workplace accidents in 2013. In many instances, these injuries involved individuals’ legs, hips, or other lower extremities. When these injuries occur, workers are often unable to return to work. In addition to lost compensable time from work and wages, these injured workers often incur extensive medical costs.
Fortunately, South Carolina’s Worker’s Compensation law provides benefits to people who have suffered such injuries in the workplace. If you have suffered a hip or leg injury as a result of a workplace accident, you should discuss your entitlement to benefits with an experienced South Carolina workers compensation attorney as soon as possible.
Hip and leg injuries can occur as a result of a variety of accidents and product defects
The following are only some examples of the ways in which individuals commonly suffer hip and leg injuries while on the job:
- Slip and falls
- Vehicle accidents
- Defective footwear
- Defective work tools
- Falls from heights
- Defective safety equipment
- Slippery floors
- Liquid spills
- Improper facility maintenance
No matter what type of accident occurred, victims of work-related hip and leg injuries deserve to receive adequate benefits to cover their medical expenses and are entitled to lost income. Filing a workers’ compensation for a broken leg or hip claim can be a complex and confusing process. It is always imperative to have the guidance of a skilled workers’ compensation attorney throughout the process.
