An injury to any part of your leg will affect your personal life and ability to perform work duties. Injuries to knees, ankles and feet frequently occur at workplace due to falls, cuts, or an impact. If not treated quickly and properly can develop into even greater problem.
For example, the untreated knee injury may cause injury to your hip. Those injuries may be painful, but may also be relatively pain free if you limit walking. Either way you should see the doctor to rule out torn ligaments or cartilage. Always report the injury at work to your employer.
At doctor’s visit make sure to clearly state that the injury occurred at work. Doctor will make a note of it and it may be used as an additional evidence if needed. If you have any injuries to your leg, most likely you will need time off work and physical therapy.
