Over the past few months, I have seen an increasing number of work injuries involving my clients’ lower body. These work injuries include #anklefractures, #tibula fractures, #fibula#fractures or severely strained ligaments in the legs below the knee.
My experience has been that you need to see a lower extremity specialist for care of a leg or ankle fracture or even a traumatic displacement. Your future work will likely involve standing and walking and if your current leg or ankle injury is not properly treated, you will continue to experience pain and weakness long after your settlement money runs out.
Needless to say, an industrial clinic doctor is probably not the right medical provider for a serious lower body injury.
Further, I often find that insurance adjusters do not fully understand that a leg or ankle injury often precludes any light duty work. Driving to work may be a problem as would performing any job involving physical activity as it is all but impossible to avoid putting pressure on your legs, ankle and feet no matter what you are doing. You will not heal well if you are rushed back to work prematurely.
