Council Bluffs Hip Injury Lawyer
Workers' Comp Representation for Clients in Nebraska & Iowa
The hip is one of the most important joints in your body. An injury to the hip almost always requires long-term medical treatment, and taking time off work is usually inevitable. If your hip injury was caused by an accident at work or work-related wear and tear, then you should be able to file for workers’ compensation. A successful workers’ compensation claim can help cover your medical expenses as well as your lost wages from time off work.
When filing your injury claim, it is important that you have an idea of what your long-term medical needs will entail. The insurance company will need to be prepared to cover your wages for as long as possible. Our workers’ compensation attorney in Council Bluffs can help you file your claim and work to ensure you receive the resources you need to sustain yourself and your family while you recover.
Hip Pain & Recovery
You will likely be bed-ridden most of the day if you have a hip injury. Light exercises guided by a physical therapist are a typical component of a hip injury treatment plan. If you do not experience pain relief from physical therapy, medication, and other noninvasive treatments, then your doctor will probably recommend you start exploring surgical options — including hip replacement surgery. If you do require a total hip replacement, then you will still need physical therapy, medication, etc. as part of your post-surgical recovery. All of this should be covered by your workers’ compensation claim if the injury was work-related.
Compensation for your hip injury may include the cost of:
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Lost wages from time off work
- Medical equipment such as canes, wheelchairs, etc.
- Treatment for associated injuries such as bed sores, back pain, disfigurement, etc.
