Knee Injury Claims Under Georgia Workers Compensation Law

Have you injured your knee at work and getting confusing calls from your employer’s HR manager or a workers’ compensation insurance company?

Knee injuries can take many forms - from a #meniscustear, to an #ACLinjury to a #patella fracture. Whatever the diagnosis, any type of work can be difficult if you have trouble walking, standing, sitting, climbing, crouching, or crawling.

As discussed in this video, my experience has been that an MRI is often the best diagnostic tool that a doctor can use to find out exactly what is going on. It is not unusual for a doctor to wait until the swelling in your knee has gone down before scheduling an MRI, but if the doctor tries to diagnose your knee injury without an MRI, you should be concerned.

Similarly if the workers compensation representative refers you to an orthopedist who does not specialize in knees, you should be concerned. There are many excellent orthopedic surgeons in the Atlanta area and throughout Georgia, but only a small percentage specialize in knee problems. You deserve a top level doctor for your knee injury. #georgiaworkerscompensation #hurtatwork #workinjuryatlanta #kneeinjuriesandgeorgiaworkerscompensation
