Milton Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

In Milton, and throughout Vermont, you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits if you have been injured on the job. Accidents in the workplace are more common than many people think, and they result in very serious injuries. Your employer, or their insurance provider, may argue that your injuries are likely not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, even if that is not true. Our Milton workers’ compensation lawyer can help you obtain the full benefits you deserve.

Shoulder and Knee Injuries

Shoulder and knee injuries are very common after a slip and fall at work, regular bending, or constant reaching overhead. These injuries are very painful and can prevent you from performing daily activities such as cleaning, cooking, and working. The employer or the insurance company may argue that you did not suffer the injuries at work in an attempt to deny you compensation.

Foot and Ankle Injuries

Foot and ankle injuries may sound minor, but they are not. Sprains, strains, tears, and broken bones are just a few of the most common types of foot and ankle injuries that can greatly limit a person’s mobility and prevent them from working. Medical treatment can also become quite costly, particularly when bone grafts and surgery are necessary. The insurance company may argue that these injuries are due to pre-existing conditions.

Repetitive Motion Injuries

Any part of the body can suffer a repetitive motion injury if it performs the same motion over an extended period of time. Hands, wrists, and elbows are the most common parts of the body to suffer repetitive motion injuries. These injuries can be very hard to diagnose, making it even more difficult to obtain workers’ compensation benefits.

Occupational Diseases

Science teachers, construction workers, and other employees can suffer from an occupational disease if they are exposed to a toxic substance. Occupational diseases are very serious and range from brain damage, liver damage, respiratory illnesses, and more. Due to the fact that treating an occupational disease is costly, insurance companies often try to delay, reduce, or deny claims.

Head and Brain Injuries

A head or brain injury can dramatically impact the rest of your life. After these types of injuries, you may not be able to think, speak, or communicate as you once did. Head and brain injuries also do not present symptoms right away and so, insurance companies carefully scrutinize these claims.

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Complex regional pain syndrome is a condition that arises after a physical trauma. Those who suffer from CRPS first sustain a physical injury that leads to the secondary condition, CRPS. No one can determine whether their physical injury will result in CRPS, and workers’ compensation should provide benefits for it. These are incredibly hard to obtain, though.
