Financial Security after a Joint Injury at Work

You were lifting, reaching, twisting, crouching. All just part of the job. Then came the pain.

Whether it was from a sudden movement or stress on your body over time, you have a joint injury. Now you’re hurting, unable to work, overwhelmed by medical bills and insecure about your financial future.

You should be getting workers’ compensation benefits, including checks for lost wages and medical treatment free of charge, so after a joint injury at work you can continue to live the secure life you worked hard to earn.

The problem is, sometimes employers and the workers’ comp system work against you, denying or skimping on your benefits.

The lawyers at Horenstein, Nicholson & Blumenthal are here to make sure you get all the financial support you’re entitled to receive.

We don’t represent companies or the government. We help real people.

That’s why they say “Helping me, that’s HNB.”

Types of Joint Injuries on the Job

It doesn’t matter how it happened or who was at fault, if you were hurt as an employee in Ohio, you’re eligible for workers’ compensation for joint injuries.

The attorneys at HNB have helped people with all of these joint injuries and more:

  • Tears
  • Tendonitis
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Wrist injuries
  • Hip injuries
  • Knee injuries
  • Ankle injuries

The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics found that sprains, strains and tears, which can happen in any joint in your body, are among the most common job injuries nationwide.

And tendonitis—often occurring in joints like shoulders, elbows and knees—was responsible for the most missed work days of any job injury in 2017.

For a workers’ comp case, you’ll need evidence proving your injury happened at work and showing how it affects your life.

Let the team at the HNB law firm look at your case and make a plan to protect your financial future.

When you suffer a joint injury at work, don’t hesitate to pursue the maximum benefits available. You worked hard. You deserve support as you recover.

We’ll provide an honest assessment of your case for free.

What To Do Right after a Workplace Joint Injury

To give yourself the strongest workers’ comp case, take these steps as soon as you realize you’ve suffered a joint injury at work:

  • Report your injury to your supervisor.
  • Complete a written injury report and get a copy.
  • Get medical treatment as soon as possible.
  • Tell the doctor every detail of what happened.
  • Make sure your workers’ comp claim gets filed. You, your employer or your doctor can do it.
  • Don’t let your employer pay you directly for your injury. Filing a claim protects your rights.
  • Get an experienced workers’ comp attorney.

When you work with an experienced workers’ comp lawyer from HNB, you’ve got someone to make sure forms get filed properly, deadlines get met, and your claim is handled correctly so a mistake doesn’t threaten the benefits you deserve.

If your claim gets rejected, having an attorney also means you’ve got someone to fight for you.

HNB can represent you to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation. And we’ll take your appeal for benefits to a hearing at the Ohio Industrial Commission—if that’s what it takes to win benefits.

After a joint injury interrupts your work life, we’ll work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
