Working Hard for the Hardworking People of Connecticut

Connecticut’s Experienced Joint and Ligament Injury Lawyers

Joint and Ligament Injury

Don’t Ignore Your Joint Pain

A debilitating injury is not always caused by a catastrophic accident. Sometimes disabling injuries develop slowly, but lead to painful or life-threatening conditions. If you have an arthritic knee, a torn rotator cuff, damaged ligaments, tendons, or muscles, you need a lawyer who can get you the medical attention and legal help you need.

Are You Hurting at Work?

Repetitive trauma injuries are painful and debilitating. Our lawyers represent workers from across Connecticut in all phases of the workers’ compensation process. If you are suffering from a torn rotator cuff or another type of repetitive stress injury, our law firm can help you recover compensation for lost income, find and obtain proper medical care, and recover medical expenses.

The workers’ compensation process can be confusing, frustrating and fraught with delays. We work hard to get the money needed to cover hospital bills, rehabilitation, ongoing therapies, lost wages and other losses caused by a serious injury.

Were You Hurt in an Accident?

Sometimes joint and ligament damage can take days, months, or even years to become apparent. Or an accident-related injury leads to additional damage and pain down the road. You need a workers’ compensation lawyer who can get you benefits for ligament or tendon injuries, meniscus tears, rotator cuff injuries, repetitive strain syndrome, carpal tunnel, and tendonitis. The lawyers at Leighton, Katz, and Drapeau can help you with all kinds of debilitating injures, including:

  • Shoulder joint injuries, including acromioclavicular (AC) joint injury and rotator cuff tears
  • Wrist injuries involving sprains, crushed wrist bones and torn ligaments
  • Elbow injuries involving ligaments, tendons, muscle attachments and inflamed bursa
  • Knee injuries, including torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), torn posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) and torn meniscus
  • Ankle injuries, including sprains, tendon and ligament tears, and broken ankle bones
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome
  • Arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis and carpal tunnel inflammation resulting from injury or through repetitive stress
  • Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which cause limited mobility and pain in muscles and joints
  • Fractured hips and other broken joints
  • Dislocations of shoulder, hip, elbow, knee and other joints

When you are injured at work, it is important to conduct an investigation into the cause of the injury, its nature and extent, and to gather and preserve evidence and witness testimony. Once a doctor establishes the cause of the injury, our lawyers will seek compensation to pay for you and your medical bills. If your injury leaves you unable to work, you are entitled to receive a weekly benefit for the weeks that you are disabled and unable to work- up to 75 percent of your regular take-home pay. 

And remember that our lawyers don’t earn a cent until you get compensated for your injury due to a ligament, tendon, rotator cuff, or other workplace injury.
