Sprain and Strain Injury Lawsuits with Warshafsky Law Get You the Compensation Your Deserve
Sprains and strains are often referred to as though they’re the same thing, but they’re not. Although considered “minor” injuries, they can be quite painful and even require pain medication and time off from work for physical therapy. So, what’s the difference between the two?
A sprain is when you overextend or tear a ligament from stress on a joint or along the spine. Typical causes include breaking a fall with an outstretched hand (sprained wrist) and spraining an ankle from tripping on an uneven surface. A strain is an injury to a muscle caused by abrupt or extreme pulling of the muscle. Typical causes include slipping on icy pavement and lifting something heavy in an awkward position.
If you have suffered a sprain or strain due to the negligence of others or unsafe working conditions, you have a legal right to file a legal claim (lawsuit) against those responsible in order to get financial compensation for your medical costs and time lost from work. In Milwaukee, no law firm has more experience or success in such cases than Warshafsky Law.
