OR Working? Not Working?

Sprain or Ligament Damage

Sprain and ligament damage while on the job is common. This type of injury typically occurs after forceful movements, such as carrying heavy objects, quickly changing directions, shifting your weight, or other hurried movements. You may feel a pop or a sudden rush of pain when the injury occurs. However, most of us have been trained to ignore pain and continue working. This is not the smart solution. It is imperative to take time for your body to heal and recover properly from your injury.

Need to file for workers’ compensation after your injury but are unsure where to start? Allow the expert team at WorkInjuryRights.Com™ to guide you. They will help you through the process and allow you to focus on healing, so you can get back to work as soon as possible.

Types of Sprains

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.

Are Sprains and Ligament Damage Covered by Workers’ Compensation?

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.
