Joint and Muscle Injuries

Pennsylvania Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Joint and muscle injuries can result in pain and swelling, and sometimes can lead to the inability to move a joint. These injuries can be quite severe and can take a long time to heal, leading to extensive medical bills and lost work.

If you have experienced a muscle or joint injury on the job, you may be able to pursue workers' compensation. The lawyers at Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., can help. Since 1972, we have been representing workers throughout Pennsylvania who have become the victims of joint and muscle injuries.

There Are Many Different Types Of Injuries To Muscles And Joints.

  • Sprains: A sprain occurs when ligaments are stretched or torn.
  • Strains: A strain occurs when the muscle or tendon is overstretched or torn.
  • Torn muscles: Torn muscles can range from a complete rupture, which is rare, to the tearing of some of the fibers that make up the muscle.
  • Repetitive stress injuries (RSI): RSIs or repetitive motion injuries often result from overuse — including repetitive tasks, forceful exertions, vibrations and mechanical compression — in the workplace

You Manage Your Health. We Will Manage Your Case.

The legal aspects of your case and your medical treatment are two separate elements that must be dealt with individually. While we work on the legal aspects of a muscle injury case, we urge you to focus on medical treatment. Dedicate yourself to your recovery by following orders from your doctor or physical therapist. At the same time, we will focus on preparing strong and effective legal advocacy to help you recover your lost wages.

In preparing your workers' compensation or personal injury case, we may obtain your medical records, visit the scene of the accident and interview key witnesses to the accident. We also collaborate with a broad spectrum of experts, including medical experts, accident reconstruction experts, economists, experts on vocational and special needs issues, industrial hygienists and engineers.
