Obtain the Benefits You Need for Your Foot or Ankle Injuries
When you roll your ankle in a slip and fall accident at work, serious injuries to your foot or ankle result and may keep you from performing at normal levels at work for weeks or months — or longer. At the Texas law firm, I strive to provide injured workers with the guidance they need to obtain rightful workers’ compensation benefits and any other benefits they are entitled to after serious work injuries.

I Understand the Long-Term Effects of Foot and Ankle Injuries
Many Texans who suffer fractures to their feet or ankles in slip and fall accidents at work let themselves believe that their accidents were minor and their injuries will heal over time. Having personally handled such claims for over 32 years, I know better.
The number of joints and ligaments in your foot and ankle can present significant challenges when the area suffers trauma in an accident. The injuries do not heal well, which can cause you to develop arthritis. In addition, the pain associated with your injuries can cause you to alter how you walk and move about in order to alleviate your pain and discomfort. The result of favoring the injury in one foot or ankle can lead to additional joint injuries, such as knee or shoulder injuries. The uneven weight distribution can also lead to chronic back pain or a back injury.
I use my decades of experience to help you pursue the full workers’ compensation benefits that you are entitled to for your foot or ankle injuries, including benefits related to subsequent injuries that are generated from your foot or ankle injuries. Also, when your injuries involve someone other than your employer who was negligent, such as in a work-related car or truck accident, I explore other opportunities for compensation beyond your workers’ compensation benefits.
