Grade I: If you feel tenderness, have slight swelling or bruising, but you can put weight on your joint, you have a Grade I sprain. You can expect the injury to heal within 2-3 weeks.
Grade II: If you have bruising, pain, and swelling along with significant pain when you put weight on your joint, you have a Grade II sprain. Your joint should still be stable, and you can expect to heal in 3-6 weeks.
Grade III: This type of injury involves a complete ligament rupture or tear. You will have severe pain, bruising, and swelling. You cannot bear your own weight. With proper therapy and rehab, this injury may take up to 3 months to heal.
To properly heal and recover from a sprain, you will need time off work and off your feet. The experienced personal injury attorneys at WorkInjuryRights.Com™ can help fight for workers’ compensation benefits, so you can focus on healing.
If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation, regardless of the type of injury. If you seek immediate medical treatment and your injury dictates time off, you are eligible. However, you will need to apply for compensation and prove that you suffered your injury at work. You will also need to calculate the benefits you are eligible to receive under Florida law. All this paperwork can prove to be complex and confusing, so allow WorkInjuryRights.Com™ to help streamline your application process.
If you believe your work-related injury qualifies you for workers’ compensation, contact WorkInjuryRights.Com™ today to learn about your next actionable steps. They will investigate your injury and help you seek the financial assistance you deserve.
