What are Common Joint Injuries?

Common joint injuries include sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction that can lead to back pain, elbow and knee discomfort, and limited range of motion. A lot of these are avoidable to an extent, such as limiting exertions, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and working in a safe environment. Accidents do happen though. Here are a few injuries that may lead to joint-related problems:

  • Joint locks or loss of range of motion
  • Tenderness, redness, or swelling
  • Weakness and stiffness
  • Limping or awkward gate

Regarding joint injuries in Missouri, there are several factors to consider. Here are a handful of general workers compensation legalities to keep in mind:

Reimbursement depends on the severity of the injury. A death or life-debilitating injury (leading to being unable to continue working again versus a few months off are different. Is the joint injury partial or complete?

Like other cases, joint injury attorneys emphasize timeliness. Claims have varying statutes of limitations. It is important to move quickly as soon as you or a loved one can to maximize compensation and benefits to assist with medical bills, lost time, and other costs.

Workers compensation came into being alongside workplace lawsuits. If a worker agrees to workers comp, you typically forego the right to sue the workplace for negligence.
