Knee injuries frequently affect New York construction workers who lift heavy objects or perform stressful repetitive motions.
Many different kinds of on-the-job tasks performed by New York construction workers can result in serious knee injuries. Trips, falls, lifting heavy objects, and other stressful repetitive motions performed on construction sites are just a few of the causes of knee injuries to construction workers. Excessive time spent kneeling, crouching, or squatting can also increase stress on the knees. Wearing kneepads and keeping the construction site FREE of clutter and debris that presents a tripping hazard are two ways that the risk of knee injuries can be minimized.

Financial Consequences of a Knee Injury
A knee injury can have a significant effect on motor function and prevent a construction worker from working until it is healed. Depending on the severity of the knee injury, extensive physical therapy or surgery may be required.The costs of these medical procedures and rehabilitation should not be the responsibility of the victim if his or her injury was the result of someone else's negligence. An attorney can advise about obtaining compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering damages if your knee injury was caused by construction site negligence.
