Leg Injuries in the Workplace
Regardless of your job, it is a virtual certainty that meeting the daily requirements of your position will be made immensely difficult, if not impossible, by a serious injury to your leg(s). The layout of the building where you work may not readily accommodate crutches, a wheelchair, or other medical devices and implements crucial to enabling a swift and thorough recovery. As a result, you may be unable to work at full capacity, or at all for some period of time. If the injuries were sustained on the job then you are likely eligible to seek workers’ compensation benefits.
Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to address the medical expenses incurred by your injuries and the wage gap that they can create. A skilled and experienced attorney can help you to file your claim so that you can avoid making mistakes that will lead to delays.

Common Leg and Lower Body Injuries
The legs are incorporated in a host of vital activities, including standing, walking, and lifting. Some occupations will expose workers to a greater degree of stress and use than others, but even a seemingly sedentary office job can lead to injury. An obstacle left in a walkway, for example, can cause a worker to suffer a broken toe or foot. Common leg and lower body injuries that may warrant workers’ compensation claims include:
- Foot Fractures
- Fractured Tibia, Fibula, or Femur
- Patellar Fractures
Your family depends upon your ability to work, and the expensive medical bills that your injury has incurred can be distressing. Ease your mind. Contact the Des Moines workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
