Fort Lauderdale Lawyers for Shoulder & Knee Injuries
If You Need Serious Medical Care, You Are Not Alone
Especially in jobs that involve a lot of repetitive motion, workers may develop injuries to joints including their shoulders and knees. These injuries may start as slight pain that subsides as soon as you’re off the job, but if left untreated, they can become much worse, to the point where you need serious medical treatment. If you injured your shoulder or knee at work, either due to overuse or an accident, you should take action sooner than later to avoid certain lasting complications.

Damages in Shoulder and Knee Injury Cases
Shoulder and knee injuries can severely limit your capabilities. They can prevent you from exercising, which could cause your health to deteriorate or exacerbate existing health conditions. They may also keep you from fulfilling your duties at work, force you to forgo important family and social events, and cause an unfair amount of pain, suffering, and mental anguish.
Along with forcing changes to your life, shoulder and knee injuries can cost thousands of dollars in medical expenses for treatment like:
- Inpatient rehabilitation
- Outpatient rehabilitation
- Visits with medical specialists
- Corrective surgery
- Ongoing medical treatment
- Treatment for resulting disabilities
- Costly pain medications
Shoulder and knee injuries can also eat up your savings and reduce your ability to make a living or progress in your career, thereby creating even greater long-term costs, such as:
- Reduced retirement savings
- Lost income
- Lost inheritance for dependents
All of these impacts can change the course of your life entirely. If you were injured in a workplace accident, filing a workers’ compensation claim can help you defray the financial effects and make sure you have a source of income until you are able to return to the workplace.
Our Lawyers Can Help You Secure Compensation
In Florida, almost all workers are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of who was at fault for their injury. If your accident occurred as a direct result of the negligence or error of another person or entity, you may also have the option of filing a personal injury claim. Both alternatives have pros and cons, but they have one thing in common: They’re much easier with an experienced lawyer on your side.
Our Fort Lauderdale team provides the down-to-earth and compassionate service you need during this time. We are here to explain your options, offer knowledgeable advice, and help you execute whichever path you choose to pursue compensation. Our passion is in defending everyday people like you—so if you need assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out.
