Did You Suffer A Knee Or Ankle Injury?
Knee and ankle injuries in the workplace can range from minor sprains and strains to tears, dislocations and fractures that require extensive medical care and surgery to repair. In some cases, you may even need a knee replacement. If you injured your ankle or knee on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Strong Advocacy For Injured Workers in Minnesota
A knee or ankle injury could occur during a sudden accident or may develop over time in what is known as a repetitive motion injury. Construction workers and factory and manufacturing workers are especially prone to knee and ankle injuries; however, workers in all occupations may suffer one of these injuries:
- Sprained ankle
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury
- Torn meniscus
- Dislocated knee
- Tendon rupture
If you have suffered a knee or ankle injury at work, it is important to tell your employer as soon as possible. We recommend waiting no more than 30 days to report your injury, or you could encounter adverse consequences. Additionally, it is important to know that you have a right to a doctor of your own choice.
These injuries may require surgery, physical therapy and other expensive medical treatments. Even after treatment, you may never regain full use of your knee or ankle. Our experienced Minneapolis attorney for knee and ankle injuries, Michael Schultz, will help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you need.
